Is it safe going to the Orthodontist during COVID-19?

At the start of the novel corona virus pandemic in March, almost all dentists and oral surgeons stopped seeing patients; more than 90 percent of offices closed, cancelled or delayed non-essential dental procedures in the process. Orthodontist, including White Brown Smiles in Greenville SC, were concerned about the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the respiratory disease that leads to a diagnosis of COVID-19 as they work directly on chair patients. In fact, orthodontic procedures sometimes produce vaporized aerosols as a result of working in the mouth, and these infectious droplets can spread quickly in the enclosed spaces of an operating room.

Going to the dentist should feel radically different from what it has in the past, with new guidelines intended to discourage anyone who may be unknowingly sick from transferring SARS to other providers or patients. Recent guidelines published by both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the ADA will guide dentists in creating new procedures to reduce COVID-19 risks as best they can. Primarily, they concentrate on fostering social distance between staff and patients where possible, through cleaning of shared surfaces and constant monitoring of COVID-19 symptoms before and after appointments by both parties.

How to stay safe during Orthodontist visit:

Both the CDC and the ADA ask patients to check themselves for any COVID-19 signs before and after their appointments, enabling doctors and their teams to alert any patients that they might have been exposed to someone who has been infected later on. Here are a few things you can do to stay healthy at the dentist:

Participate in screenings prior to and following appointment. White Brown Smiles Orthodontist office Greenville, SC will call you to inquire about your health before and after your appointment.
