Q: My dental office in NY is not open for elective treatment and has no date for reopening at this time. How do I know what work can wait and what needs attention right now, although I have no pain?
Q: Dr. Josephs I am having problems breathing and my hands are sweating like I have a fever.
A: Well, let’s start by removing your mask and your gloves.
Any diagnosis of decay, periodontal disease, fractured teeth, fractures fillings or crowns, leaking crowns or fillings, missing teeth, ailing or failing implants, teeth broken off at the gum line, chronic non-painful abscesses visible on x-rays, un-restored implants (i.e. they have already been placed, but no teeth attached to them yet) , food traps between teeth, hygienist sessions
To give you an idea on what I did during our first week back after the delay in elective procedures, see below: (this is a 28 hour work week.)
Yes, I am tired, but don’t let that delay your treatment!
