It's Safe to Go to the Dentist During COVID-19

Since the COVID-19 pandemic first hit the United States, our lives have changed dramatically. Quarantine lockdowns have forced many of us to switch on a dime to working from home and learning virtually. We’ve worn face masks, washed our hands, and used hand sanitizer. We’ve followed social distancing guidelines and stayed home, canceling in-person playdates, family gatherings, and large holiday celebrations. We’ve done all this to help slow the spread of the coronavirus so that we can protect our community, our loved ones, and ourselves. Fear of contracting COVID-19 has been a big influencer in the past year, and for good reason. However, the Massachusetts Dental Society wants to let residents know that you shouldn’t let that fear force you to overlook your oral health. It is safe to go to the dentist right now, even for routine cleaning and exams. Your teeth and gums hold important clues to other health issues (such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, premature births, and osteoporosis), so delaying your routine dental care could be detrimental to your oral and overall health.
