How to Stay on Track with Your Orthodontic Treatment During a Pandemic

When the first case of COVID-19 hit America, everyone stayed calm but when the number of infections spiked it turned into forcing businesses and clinics to temporarily close down. If you are currently under orthodontic treatment and you can’t get a hold of your Orthodontist in Orlando there are a few things you can do to stay on track with your treatment. A rescheduled appointment should not be a cause for concern. Here’s what you need to do:

How to Stay on Track with Your Treatment While on Lockdown

For Patients Wearing Braces

If you are wearing traditional metal braces you don’t need to see your Orthodontist in Orlando every other week because the device is designed to shift your teeth in a predetermined direction over a course of weeks and sometimes even months. Don’t worry if you are wearing the same metal wire for months because that’s perfectly fine unless the wire is broken or bent, in such case, you’ll need to contact your orthodontist as soon as possible. To ensure that your braces are safe all throughout the duration of this pandemic, heed the advice of your orthodontist by being mindful of what you put inside your mouth. Don’t eat hard and chewy foods as these can cause your braces to bend and break.

For Patients Wearing Invisalign

For patients who are wearing clear aligners, please do follow the advice of your Orthodontist in Orlando during your last appointment. Every time you remove your aligners and before putting them back on make sure you thoroughly washed your hands. Don’t take them out unless you brush your teeth and eat to stay on track with your treatment.
