We hope you are all staying safe and healthy during these unprecedented times. Our Middlesex, NJ team wanted to touch base to let you know that, as a part of our extended family, you are very much in our thoughts right now. We also wanted to remind you to please keep up with your family’s oral hygiene routine while everyone is stuck at home.
Even in these strange days of social distancing, everyone in your household should be brushing twice a day for two minutes at a stretch, while flossing diligently too. We cannot overstate the importance of maintaining good oral health when it comes to promoting overall wellness and a sturdy immune system. While what you are doing at home on a daily basis (brushing, flossing, rinsing) is super-important, it can never take the place of what we do at the office. These activities go hand in hand and will lead to the best possible outcomes moving forward.
Studies have shown that the vast majority of diseases (something like 9 out of 10) can create visible warning signs in your mouth. That puts your dentist on the front line for spotting health concerns that are unfolding silently in your internal system. This is just one of several good reasons why it’s imperative to see your dentist every six months.
Accordingly, we will be ready to get you back in here for a checkup and exam as soon as this COVID-19 situation has been resolved. The best part is that, if you carry dental insurance, two of these cleanings and exams are typically covered by your annual benefits. If you are without coverage, we have some special financing options and an in-house dental plan for you to explore as well. The important thing is that you get your family back on track fast.
You see, at Advanced Dentistry, we have the necessary training and technology to keep your mouth feeling fresh and your smile looking great through every season of life. Plus, we’ll use our modern techniques to detect any emerging issues that can potentially create a whole host of problems for you, like cavities and oral cancer. You can never be too careful about such things.
We look forward to seeing you, your family, and your friends very soon. If you do have a previously scheduled appointment, we will be reaching out to you directly to get you rescheduled to a future date. In the meantime, our special Virtual Smile Assessment is now available on our website. This means that you can continue social distancing but still reach out to our team with any cosmetic concerns to get ahead of future treatment with a virtual consultation now.
As always, if you have any questions, please call our Middlesex, NJ office at 732-506-2876, or you can fill out our online form for a future appointment, starting May 18th. If you run into a dental emergency before that, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us ASAP! We are here for you and will be happy to help you. Talk to you soon!
