The last two years have been challenging for people across the world as the Covid-19 pandemic wreaked havoc on many systems. The medical profession was subsequently affected, as more people sought assistance with complications from the various diseases. With the virus spreading, it was time for medical practitioners including dentists to find innovative and effective ways to deliver care and management for their patients. To protect you from getting the virus our practice undertook some measures that were geared to ensure maximum safety to our clients.
Even though the outbreak of the virus provided the world with a lot of challenges to overcome, it provided an opportunity for technological revolutions. Teledentistry, even though it was in use at some level, it was still used sparingly. However, after the start of the pandemic, teledentistry has grown to become a well-known method of providing dental care.
Teledentistry can be considered as the use of information technology including video and audio to provide dental care services remotely. Some of the services that can be provided while using teledentistry include consultation, patient education, and diagnosis. It is an effective solution that ensures that you maintain your social distancing while still receiving dental care.
You Can Still Straighten Your Teeth Without Coming To The Office
According to the American Teledentistry Association, patients can continue with clear aligner treatment, without ever leaving the comfort of their home. People need to find ways that they can limit physical contact, and this provides an effective way. Therefore, even if you live in rural areas, you need not worry about the lack of access to dental care. You only come to the office when it is necessary, for instance, if you require teeth extraction services. You can call us to continue with your dental care even during this pandemic.
