The COVID-19 crisis has caused everybody to make a lot of changes to their daily routine. Namely, canceling just about everything and practicing social distancing until the crisis has passed.
For many, this includes routine dental appointments. If you have an appointment at McCosh Family Dentistry in the next couple of days or weeks and you aren’t going to make it due to social distancing, all you need to do is call.
At McCosh Family Dentistry, we can facilitate the rescheduling of your dental appointment until after the crisis is over. While nobody really knows when that will be right now, it’s a safe bet that within a couple of weeks or a month at the most life should return to normal — or something approximating normal, anyway.
That includes taking care of your teeth by seeing your dentist for teeth cleanings, routine dental exams, or any required procedures. Rescheduling your appointment now can ensure you get the dates and times that are most convenient for you and your family.
Maintain Dental Habits
Staying home from work and keeping away from other people until the crisis passes can be stressful. Many are taking shelter at home, binge-watching movies, finally attacking that pile of books by the bedside, or even socializing remotely with friends via Skype or FaceTime.
Yet maintaining good dental habits needs to remain a priority despite the isolation. Just because you may not see as many people — or any people — in person for a while doesn’t mean you shouldn’t brush after every meal, floss daily, and gargle with mouthwash.
Not only will it help keep your teeth and gums healthy and clean but it also could help protect your health by killing germs.
This crisis won’t last forever. And when it’s all over, you want to make sure your teeth are just as white and bright as they were before it started.
