There’s a lot of chaos in the world related to COVID-19, including a statewide lockdown here in Idaho. One concern many people have at this time is if they should be visiting the orthodontist. Idaho Falls is experiencing a new and difficult situation and we want to help ease you through it. Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to whether or not you should visit the orthodontist at this time.
The first thing you should do is discuss your routine office visits and standard care schedule with your orthodontics office. If you need urgent orthodontic care, however, it’s a different story. Some urgent problems may require an office visit — even at times like these. However, many situations can be handled short term on your own until you can get in to see an Idaho Falls orthodontist.
