Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, dental practices around the world are closed, opening their doors only for patients experiencing dental emergencies. Dental emergencies are classed as:
Toothache not improving with medication
Bleeding after an extraction
Unfortunately, for the foreseeable future, patients are not able to see their hygienists for the recommended bi-annual cleanings. Looking after your teeth and gums at home during this time is crucial, especially with uncertainty around when dental offices may re-open. By taking care of your teeth properly during this time, you can reduce your risk of developing dental decay and gum disease.
