Letter to Patients from Dr. Roberts: Adams Dental Group Welcomes Back Patients for Dental Appointments
With crazy schedules, it can be nerve-wracking to stick to your regular appointments, like visiting the dentist. According to Dr. Terri Tiersky, who spoke with the Chicago Tribune, you should feel comfortable visiting the dentist as normal. Dental health is extremely important to your overall health, so if you’re trying to stay healthy, don’t neglect your mouth and see your dentist often.
“As has been the case since the beginning of this pandemic, dentists have been following all of the recommended protocols to keep their patients, their staff and themselves safe and healthy, and this has not changed,” she said in an email. “The risk of undetected dental disease that could occur by not seeing the dentist is much higher than the likelihood of getting sick when visiting the dental office. Dental health is not only important for your teeth and mouth, but for the rest of your body as well. Preventative dental care and strong oral hygiene creates an additional, critical barrier of protection to prevent greater health complications.”

A study conducted by The American Dental Association also showed that less than 1 percent of dentists nationwide had tested positive for COVID-19. Also, the World Health Organization and the CDC say there have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 transmitted in a dental office so far.

It’s more important than ever to stay on top of your oral care. With the added stress of the global pandemic, we can grind our teeth and clench our jaw more than ever. This can result in cracked teeth or teeth grinding problems. Remember, catching dental problems early is key to fixing them quickly! Your dentist, Dr. Roberts, and his Team are your first line of defense and can often get a great sense of your health and wellbeing from your checkup.
