Collectively, as a society, we spent the last two years now worrying about one certain virus. In the beginning, everybody was anxious, everything was uncertain, more than ever before. We kept looking at the numbers, we had a full-on lockdown. Then as the waves come and go, we adjust to restrictions, while still trying to figure out the best way not to get infected, not to spread the virus, and keep our loved ones safe. But life cannot entirely stop, not even during quarantines and lockdowns; the need for dental check-ups has not ceased to exist. At the Hungarian Dental Clinic in Letterkenny, we do our best to keep everything as sanitized as possible, so that you do not have to worry about your health while you are getting your teeth checked out.
First and foremost, and we cannot emphasise this enough: catching COVID-19 at the Hungarian Dental Clinic is rather unlikely. As a medical facility, we keep everything sanitized at all times. It was true even before the pandemic, but with the virus, we always go the extra mile and check everything twice. So much so, that the Hungarian Dental Clinic invested in machines (e.g.: Woodpecker Q7 Air Purifier) that specializes in disinfecting our surfaces and tools so that you can safely enter our facility. Our staff also follows COVID-19 protocols, from hand-sanitizing, social distancing, through quarantining, if need be. It is also extremely important that you follow these protocols: we urge you to let us know and postpone your existing appointments if you have been in contact with a COVID-19 patient, are showing symptoms, or produce a positive test. It is crucial for your own, others, and our staff’s safety, that you only come into our office if you are healthy.
Having to keep these protocols in mind while making a doctor’s appointment might seem like an extra inconvenience. However, dental check-ups should not be stalled for long, and if possible, should be regularly held. These dental appointments can mean that a starting infection or disease is caught in time, which can save you several appointments and long treatments in the future – a stitch, or a dental check-up in time, can indeed save nine. During these occasions, we can also talk and teach you about prevention, so that your teeth can be safe until your next appointment.
The uncertainty and extra stress might also result in some unforeseen dental problems. Do not hesitate to contact us so that our specialists can start your treatment as soon as possible. You might subconsciously grind your teeth and thus harm the enamel on them, making them prone to chipping or cracking; your gums might get inflamed and become tender due to numerous reasons, such as sub-par oral hygiene, having contacted COVID, etc. Our team is prepared to give you the best possible care, regardless of the circumstances, or cause of the problems. From initial consultation through the entirety of the treatment, you can always ask questions, make sure that your concerns are addressed. We strive to make you as comfortable as possible, even during a pandemic.
There are some things that you might consider to keep your teeth as healthy as possible, to reduce the number of doctoral visits to the minimum. Even if living through a global pandemic, working from home, or being quarantined is a stressful situation, try to keep your diet healthy. We have prepared a list of meals that help you keep your teeth as healthy as possible, and what meals to avoid. It is also of utmost importance that you keep a good oral hygiene routine, with proper brushing and flossing. You can always schedule a consultation with your dentist to check if your routine is still the best possible routine for you and your teeth. We also have a list of diseases and symptoms that you can be on the lookout for so that whenever you meet those symptoms, you can book an appointment in time, and start treatment right away.
If you have questions about how you should take care of your teeth during a quarantine, or you have concerns about whether you are safe to visit the Hungarian Dental Clinic, you can always contact us. But we ensure you that you are safe to visit and book an appointment with us. The risk of getting infected during dental treatment is extremely low, and we make it our mission to eliminate that risk. Just like we strive to eliminate dental diseases. Book your appointment for treatment at the Hungarian Dental Clinic in Letterkenny now.
