Over the past few weeks, many patients have been unsettled about the feasibility and necessity of their dental treatments. For this reason, we would like to inform you about the latest developments and give you further information on our part:
On April 9, 2020, the state government of Baden-Württemberg has published that dental care for patients may only be possible for acute illnesses and emergencies and that all other treatments should be postponed.
But already on April 12, 2020 through the understanding between the decision-makers of the state government of Baden-Württemberg and the state dental association of Baden-Württemberg, this statement has been modified: Since then, all medically necessary treatments should take place again. At this point in time, this also included treatments that serve to avoid a deterioration in the (oral) state of health.
Today we are even one step further: The state government repeals Section 6a of the Corona Regulation – three weeks after its coming into effect – from May 4, 2020:
“Now that the dental clinics have been adequately equipped with the personal protective equipment that is indispensable in the Corona crisis, we can now lift the restrictions on dental treatment. I would like to thank all those involved for the constructive and trusting cooperation in difficult times, ”said Health Minister Manne Lucha.
We very much welcome this decision, after which dental treatments can take place again without the previous restrictions!
Scientific studies have shown that a clean, well-kept oral cavity does not get sick so easily. Here is the main entry point for bacteria and viruses. Good oral hygiene or a healthy oral cavity is even more important in times of Covid-19 than it was before. It serves as the body’s immune barrier and can protect us from viruses and other pathogens much better than a sick oral cavity.
Your (dental) health is important to us!
Dentistry is particularly important in these times and must remain available to everyone. The risk of infection is proven to be significantly lower with us than with other resident specialists.
Do you have any questions?
