When you have no concerns about your oral health, you can keep your smile healthy and safe by sticking with semiannual dental exams. At these regular appointments, you will receive beneficial feedback about the condition of your teeth and gums, and you will also enjoy protection in the form of a dental cleaning. However, when problems do occur, you can find yourself with a need to see your dentist in between your scheduled appointments. At our Ankeny, IA dentist’s office, we can work with you to bring you in for support on short notice. While we can take care of you when problems arise, we are maintaining new safety practices to ensure that we keep our environment and patients safe from coronavirus.
Responding To A Potentially Urgent Dental Problem
If you experience persistent pain or sensitivity, or if you notice an alarming change in your smile, you can feel an understandable need to see your dentist as soon as possible. We understand that problems can grow serious with little to no warning. While we are limiting appointments in order to maintain a safe environment, we can work with you to schedule an appointment as soon as possible to tend to your concerns.
Welcoming And Caring For Patients Safely
In response to the ongoing public risk posed by coronavirus, our practice has updated our approach to scheduling and changed what we do to maintain our office to keep it safe for patients. Part of that approach involves how we check in people who arrive for treatment. Contacting us from your office to let us know you are here, and going through safety protocols to make sure you are not in poor health, will help us protect our team members and other patients. Additional changes to our office include the removal of commonly handled items, the addition of sanitizing stations to fight germs, and a policy change that asks patients to keep their masks on when they arrive at our office.
A Dental Treatment Can Preserve Your Smile
Even if you come to us with a potentially urgent oral health issue, the work we do can resolve problems with the condition of your tooth and also preserve your appearance. We use dental restorations like fillings and crowns that can imitate your enamel. Even if you need treatment that includes the extraction and replacement of a tooth, we can recommend a bridge or implant-held restoration that matches the appearance of your enamel.
