Help and advice for patients undergoing orthodontic treatment at Evesham Dental Health Team

by Evesham Dental, on 21st April 2020 | Comments Off on Help and advice for patients undergoing orthodontic treatment at Evesham Dental Health Team

As you know, it is with sadness that at the moment Evesham Dental Health Team is unable to offer face-to-face contact in a bid to reduce the spread of Covid-19.

If any registered patients need emergency dental advice during surgery hours, please leave a message on Richard’s mobile 07717 441712. Richard will return your call as soon as possible or co-ordinate a video consultation, when appropriate.

If you have a problem with your brace, our dentist Sarah Moore would like to highlight some very useful information and videos that have been provided by the British Orthodontic Society.

The BOS has created a series of information videos on self-care, including:

o   Lost elastic rings, bands or loose wires

o   Broken bonded retainer

o   Sharp wires

o   Broken elastic chain

o   Broken long wire

o   Exposed metal tie

o   Placing wax to prevent rubbing

o   Interdental brushes

o   Toothbrushing

To see the videos please click here.

The BOS is advising that no orthodontic patient should attend any dental practice at this time. In an extreme emergency, patients should contact our Broadway Road dental practice by phone to discuss ways of resolving their problem at home and we will do all we can to help. 

The BOS has created a very useful frequently asked questions section for anyone undergoing orthodontic treatment during the pandemic – click here to go to the page.

If you are unfortunate enough to have an issue with your brace or aligner over the next few weeks, you can get in touch with Sarah by email. If your concern cannot easily be dealt with over the phone, it is strongly advised that you should send a video or photos of your teeth demonstrating the problem. Here is a video to show you how.

We hope our patients stay safe, well and healthy and we look forward to welcoming you all back when we re-open.

Send us a message today...

For your convenience, we are open evenings and Saturday mornings
