How can dentists help their patients during lockdown? As dental professionals, we know you want to be there for your patients when they need you. During lockdown patients will still have dental problems. This is yet another reason why the current Covid-19 pandemic is particularly hard on the dental profession. Not only are you unable to work and earn a living, you are also unable to provide the level of care that you want to. The impact is both professional and emotional.
How can YourDentistRecommends.com help, especially during lockdown?
Here at YourDentistRecommends.com we have a wide range of dental products. Dental professionals can recommend the products to solve some of the most common problems that patients may be facing. Our service allows you to manage your patients, offer them real solutions, and continue to have a great level of engagement with them. Here are a few of the solutions we offer…
Does your patient have toothache?
Toothache or pain from wisdom teeth can be miserable. Alongside managing pain with over the counter painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen, you will want your patients to keep the pain site clean. Using a daily mouthwash, such as Corsodyl or Curasept can help to keep with this. These are available from YourDentistRecommends.com.
Does your patient have tooth sensitivity
Extreme sensitivity to either hot or cold can be eased with toothpaste especially designed for tooth sensitivity. Products such as Sensodyne Pronamel or Colgate Pro-relief do the job effectively. You can recommend that patients switch to one of these in place of their regular toothpaste. It can also be rubbed directly onto the teeth (don’t rinse afterwards) for an extra hit of relief.
Have they lost a filling, crown or cap?
Emergency repair kits, such as the one by Toofypegs, can tide patients over until they can see you again. These are great for patients who have lost a filling, crown or cap. In addition, they are completely safe, simple to use with clear instructions. Importantly, they very easy for you to remove at their next appointment.
The last thing you want to be faced with when opening your doors again is patients who have reached for the superglue!
