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
epidemic.

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,

How Common is Dental Implant Rejection?


Posted on 11/20/2016 by Andrew Zeiger
A diagram of how a dental implant works!
Occasionally someone who has gotten a dental implant may find their body rejecting it. Dental implant rejection is only occasionally an issue, and if you thoroughly understand the dental implant process, you should feel comfortable with your chances of success.

What is Dental Implant Rejection?


Dental implant rejection is not the same kind of rejection that you may see in a situation where someone gets an organ transplant.

This is because dental implants are made out of a material (such as titanium) that is bio-compatible. This means your body should not have a reaction to the dental implant; however, rejections do occasionally occur.

Usually, when a dental implant is rejected, it is not because the implant itself is rejected so much as there is another issue at play. For example, if a dental implant is contaminated with bacteria before it is placed in your jawbone, your body may develop an infection in response to the bacteria. The result could be the loss of the dental implant.

How Common is Dental Implant Rejection?


Fortunately, properly prepared and installed dental implants are almost always accepted by your body. Across the nation, success rates hover around 95%, so if you are considering a dental implant, please do not let a fear of dental implant rejection slow you down.

If you have any questions about dental implants, please do not hesitate to contact us. Just pick up the phone and call, or shoot us an email. We'll be happy to sit down with you and take the time to explain the process and answer any questions you may have.

We are here to help you have the happy and healthy smile you've always wanted, so contact us and let's get started! We can't wait to help you!
