How to Visit the Dentist Safely During the Pandemic

How to Visit the Dentist Safely During the Pandemic

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many modifications have occurred in businesses of all types to ensure the safety and protection of the public and the employees who work in those enterprises, including dental clinics. Dental facilities are being permitted to reopen as the lockdown limits are being eased across the country. Here’s all you need to know about going to the dentist right now, in these difficult times.

Is it Safe to Visit Dental Clinics Nowadays?

Dental facilities were expected to maintain reasonably strict sanitation measures even before the pandemic. However, we are currently engaged in a struggle with an unseen attacker.

Wassan Dental is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for our patients and staff. As a result, we are implementing NASA-approved air disinfection technology. The air disinfection solution from Novaerus is assisting us in reducing air contaminants and improving air quality. All of our dental practices already clean and sanitize everything in the patient area, including the dentist chair and all dental equipment, with certified disinfectants. To decrease the risk of germ transmission from one patient to another, our dentists and receptionists are continuing wearing protective equipment such as surgical masks, gloves, and goggles. 

Due to COVID-19, there are now extra safety protocols in place, many of which have been suggested by the Ministry of Health, and dental clinics are safe to approach.

When Should You Visit the Dental Clinic?

It is important to understand whether the situation is an emergency or not. Tooth decay and gum disease are the most frequent dental disorders that dentists treat. You’re certainly aware that these problems can result in tooth loss, but oral issues can soon become dangerous. These problems can cause a serious illness, which can spread to other regions of your body if remain untreated.

Teeth cleaning, whitening, slight sensitivity, and a little chip in the teeth are all issues that can be addressed at a later date. However, it is best to contact your dentist and let them determine whether a visit is necessary.

Measures Should You Take When Visiting a Dental Clinic

  • In the current situation, it is important to schedule an appointment with a dental clinic ahead of time.
  • Wear a mask while walking through the facility, discussing your consultation, etc. 
  • Keep the appointment time and do not bring children or elderly people unless there is an emergency.
  • An antiseptic mouthwash can be used before any oral examination.
  • To prevent the risk of transmission by cash or credit cards, online payments via wallets or QR codes are suggested.

We are happy to bring you all back to our clinics in a safe and secure environment, and we are doing everything we can to ensure your safety and comfort on your next visit.

We are accessible for both normal and emergency appointments. Please contact us for further information and assistance.
