04 May COVID-19: New Changes in Our Taunton Orthodontics Office
The last few months have been filled with uncertainty as we continue to adapt to changes caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. We deeply miss all of our patients and the Whitby orthodontics community as a whole. As our team at Taunton Orthodontics cautiously transitions into a new normal, we wanted to share some changes we’ve made that have your comfort and confidence in mind.
Due to the restrictions that have been put on dental and orthodontic practices, we’re currently unable to schedule any in-person appointments that aren’t considered an emergency. However, we understand that some of our patients might have questions or concerns about their oral health or orthodontic care. Our patients are our top priority and we want to ensure that we are here for you, even during difficult times like these.
Through virtual consulting, our team can assess and answer some of the issues or questions you may have. Whether you have a general inquiry or questions about Invisalign, clear aligners or braces, we can now consult with you online! The virtual consulting process is quick and accessible for anyone to complete in the comfort of their own home. All we require is your contact information, what improvements you want to make, a preferred treatment method and some photos of your smile!
How to Take Orthodontic Photos at Home
All you need to take orthodontic photos at home are two spoons and a cellphone. We would need five different angles of your mouth for a proper assessment. The photos should include a view from the center, the right side, the left side, the top of your mouth and the bottom of your mouth. Here are some tips to help make it even easier:
- Have a friend or family member take the photos for you
- Relax your lips and cheeks
- Bite together on your back teeth
- Turn the flash on
- Watch this step by step video
