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,

Healing After Implant Surgery - What to Know


Posted on 1/10/2017 by Andrew Zeiger
A woman sore after a dental implant surgery.Getting a dental implant involves surgery to place metal rods into your jawbone. While the implant will look, feel, and function just like a normal tooth after the procedure is completed, you will definitely need to take time to heal after the surgery. Here are a few things to keep in mind.

Recovery after Implant Surgery Takes Some Time


While you're probably eager to continue on with your daily routine, remember that you have just had a surgical procedure, and you need to take the time to rest. Especially the first day after the surgery, you should do your best to rest and avoid any strenuous activity. Anything that gets your heart pumping is going to increase the flow of blood to the surgical site, and you want to do your best to avoid that.

During the first day after surgery, you really should avoid disturbing the surgical site. You may brush your teeth gently, but try to avoid the area where the implant was affixed. After about 24 hours you may gently rinse your mouth with salt water to promote hygiene, but do not vigorously swish it, as this may disturb the surgical site.

You may keep swelling to a minimum by applying ice packs to the cheek on the outside of your face. The cool temperature will travel through your cheek into the surgery site. It will help reduce swelling and minimize discomfort to do this.

You will have some pain after the procedure. You should take care to follow the directions for any pain medication you may have been prescribed, and do not take more than is recommended. Doing so can slow your healing and can lead to other problems down the road.

The biggest factor in your healing is rest and time. Take things slowly, and please do not hesitate to call us if you think you may have a serious issue.
