We have received many questions about the coronovirus and our practice. I wanted to let you know that we are taking aggressive, thorough, and comprehensive measures to keep our office COVID-19 free. In addition to the standard hygiene protocols established by the CDC, American Dental Association and OSHA, which even in normal times we follow and adhere to with vigilance, we are also screening our patients for travel and flu like symptoms while cleaning throughout the day all of our public spaces -- bathrooms, reception, front desk, door handles, etc.
As you know, our professional staff always wear masks, gloves, and protective coats when interacting with our patients and all our equipment is sterilized. All exam rooms are thoroughly cleaned between each patient visit. Nothing is more important than our patient's health and dental health and we will do everything in our power to make our office an ultra-low risk environment.
If you currently feel sick, please reschedule your dental appointment and call your physician. This is especially true if you have a fever, cough, sneezing, or shortness of breath. The same thing applies if you have had any of these symptoms in the last 48 hours.
Please also reschedule your appointment if, in the past two weeks, you have either been in close contact with someone who is infected with COVID-19, or have returned to the United States from an area affected by the coronavirus disease. Right now this list includes China, Iran, Italy, Japan, and South Korea. However, the list of countries continues to change, so it’s a good idea to check this Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website for updates on the affected countries.
If you have any more questions please don't hesitate to call us.
Hello, Monkton smiles! Do you have a missing tooth that is detracting from your otherwise nice teeth? Let Hereford Dental Health – Craig Longenecker DDS fill the gap for you and help you get your brilliant smile back! A dental bridge could be the perfect answer for your missing tooth and help you chew and speak properly.
A bridge consists of two or more crowns on either side of the gap created by your missing tooth. These two anchoring teeth allow a false tooth to be held in a place where the missing tooth should be. The false tooth that is placed in the gap is called a pontic. Bridges can contain one or more pontics. A pontic can be matched to the surrounding teeth if you select a porcelain material. If you’d like, a pontic can also be created using gold or an alloy.
Dr. Longenecker will work closely with you to make certain that your bridge has a precise fit. Then one of our proficient hygienists will show you how to clean under and around the bridge to ensure that no tooth decay arises in the nooks and crannies.
Dr. Longenecker has been successfully restoring smiles since 1998. Thousands of patients have trusted Hereford Dental Health – Craig Longenecker DDS with their dental health.
Come see us at Hereford Dental Health – Craig Longenecker DDS and you can bridge the gap and love your smile again!
