To our valued patients and families:
Due to the unprecedented and rapidly changing circumstances, we know you might have some questions about the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic and how it may affect your orthodontic care. Our team has put together this list of frequently asked questions to help you. We are here to support you and will continue to find new ways to provide you with your orthodontic care.
Thank you for your understanding during this time. We are truly grateful that you have chosen to support our small business. We pray for the health & safety of you and your loved ones.
Dr. Chelian and the Urban Orthodontics Family
Your braces will continue to straighten your teeth all day and night. Proper elastic wear will continue to correct your bite. Wash your hands before and after handling your elastics or if you touch your braces for any reason.
Please make sure you keep good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing twice a day. DO NOT eat sticky, chewy, gooey, or hard foods to avoid any breakage. If you are wearing any elastics, you may continue to do so as directed unless something is broken. If something is broken, please stop wearing your elastics.
Please keep wearing your active aligners (trays) as instructed to continue progressing your treatment.
If you do not have any more trays to continue to your next week, it is perfectly fine to reduce your last tray to nighttime wear only to ensure that your teeth stay in position. This will also extend the life of the last tray until we are allowed to bring you in. Please clean and save your last three trays to have as a backup in case you break or lose your current tray. Keep your trays clean and avoid all drinks other than water while wearing them to prevent staining.
Wash your hands before placing and removing your trays.
It is important to continue wearing your elastics, aligners (trays), or retainers to maintain your treatment progress or your treatment result. Please wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water before and after handling, elastics, trays, or retainers.
Your trays & retainers can also be rinsed or cleaned using a toothbrush or OTC cleaning solutions such as retainer brite or other conventional items that you can purchase. When cleaning the appliance, rinse thoroughly in cold water. Do NOT use high temperatures to avoid hurting yourself or distorting the trays or retainers.
Our primary concern is the health and safety of our patients and their families. Our office are making every effort to implement protocols to create the safest possible environment for our patients and community.
Insurance & Billing
After verification of coverage, we will agree to bill and collect from an insurance carrier. However, we ask patients to understand that if coverage ceases or changes, the patient is still responsible for the agreed-upon fee.
Whether or not you have insurance or a dental plan, we will structure a convenient payment plan that will allow you to pay for orthodontic services over a period of time that usually coincides with your treatment plan.
