To Our Valued Patients,

As this newest challenge continues to unfold with COVID-19(Coronavirus), we wanted to give you an update. First, we are currently maintaining our regular schedule. As of now, the Arizona Department of Health Services is not recommending closure or modification. We will continue to closely monitor information from the CDC and AZDHS and follow their recommendations. We will keep you up to date on any changes we may have to make via emails, our website, and social media.

Second, we would like to give you some insight into our practices to keep our team and patient family safe and comfortable. Dentistry is uniquely positioned to protect our team and patients. On a daily basis, we practice ‘Universal Precautions.’ This means we ALWAYS assume that every patient may be carrying a contagious, dangerous disease and we follow strict guidelines to prevent the transmission of any potential disease, including Hepatitis, Tuberculosis, HIV, AND COVID-19(Coronavirus). This has been standard of care and regulated by the Centers for Disease Control since the 1980s with the AIDS

These measures include:
1. Strict hand hygiene protocols.
2. Use of single use disposable protective equipment and barriers.
3. Thorough disinfection of exposed or potentially exposed surfaces after every patient visit.
4. Disinfection and high-heat steam sterilization of instruments. Routine monitoring of sterilization verification.
5. Continual education on infection control techniques.

In addition to these mandated measures, we have also implemented:
1. Disinfection of common area surfaces every 30 minutes.
2. Availability of hand sanitizer in common areas.
3. Screening everyone who enters based on CDC recommendations.
4. Pre-procedural mouth rinse.

We are happy to address any concerns you may have. We will continue to care for our patient family during this time following all best practices and will monitor CDC guidelines for any new recommendations.

Thank you for being a part of our family. Thank you for allowing us to care for you and your family. Please know we are here to support you and help you in any way that we can.

In good health,

Can Your Oral Surgeon Treat Your Apnea?

Posted on 11/10/2016 by Andrew Zeiger
A woman suffering from her husband's snoring; because he has sleep apnea!
If you have been diagnosed with apnea, you should know that among your treatment options is the possibility of getting upper airway surgery. Upper airway surgery is usually-although not necessarily always-used in cases when other forms of treatment have already failed.

If you think upper airway surgery may be for you, here is more information on the procedure.

What is Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a condition that causes you to momentarily stop breathing while you are asleep. There can be any number of factors that play a role in your condition, but regardless of the specific factor, the outcome is the same: sleep apnea.

If you suffer from sleep apnea, you will quite likely find yourself feeling very tired throughout the day. However, apnea problems do not stop there. Sleep apnea can cause all kinds of physical ailments and can actually be quite dangerous under the right circumstances.

Oral Surgery for Apnea

If you suffer from sleep apnea, upper airway surgery may be for you. Your oral surgeon will identify the specific part of your physiology that is contributing to your apnea issues, and will come up with a surgical plan for fixing the problem.

Oral surgery for apnea can involve restructuring the palate, reducing the size of your tongue, performing various procedures in the sinus cavity, and other steps. A complete exploration of all the oral surgery options is beyond the scope of this blog. Suffice to say, your oral surgeon will be able to devise a surgery to address your specific situation, and help you get a good night's rest once again.

If you are not sure whether oral surgery for apnea is the option for you, we encourage you to contact us. Let us explain the process and answer your questions. We're here to help, and we look forward to seeing you!
