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,

Managing Mouth Pain at Home Before Getting to Your Dentist

Posted on 9/10/2017 by Andrew Zeiger
 Mouth Pain Surprise Smiles AZ 85374-2451
When you are suffering from pain in the mouth, you of course want to do whatever you can to come see us as quickly as you can. Still, given that you may not be able to get to our office immediately, there are a few things you can do while still at home to get some relief from the pain.

Keep in mind that these tips are not meant to replace dental care. You need the attention of a dental professional in order to treat the cause of the pain. However, until you are able to see us, these tips might help to keep your life a bit more bearable.

Managing Your Mouth Pain

One of the easiest things you can do is take a mild painkiller such as aspirin, Advil, or Tylenol. These painkillers are quite effective at managing lower levels of pain, and they may be all you need to make it until you can come see us.

Of course, you should always check with your doctor before taking a painkiller if you have any medical issues that could contraindicate their use. It may be a good idea to talk to your doctor the next time you have an appointment just to make sure there are no issues with you using these medications.

Another great way to help manage the discomfort is to use an ice pack on the area. Place some ice in a dishcloth and hold it against the area. The cool temperature will help reduce swelling and alleviate some of the pain. Always be careful that you are not putting ice in direct contact with your soft tissue, as doing so can lead to injuries.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please call us at (602) 842-4864 today.
