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,

Dealing with a Broken Tooth Until You Can Be Seen


Posted on 9/20/2017 by Andrew Zeiger
 Broken Tooth Surprise Smiles AZ 85374-2451
Breaking a tooth is never a pleasant ordeal, to say the least. Of course, some breaks can be more painful than others, but even a small break can bring serious discomfort. When you have broken a tooth, the first thing you should do is come see us right away.

While you are waiting for us to see you, there are a few things you can do in order to try to alleviate some of the pain. You can use a device such as an ice pack or cold compress, and you can take simple painkillers such as aspirin to help take the edge off.

Using an Ice Pack for a Broken Tooth


Ice is a great way to help manage the pain. For one thing, it will restrict the flow of blood to the area-meaning less painful swelling. For another, the nerves will be slightly soothed by the cool temperatures, bringing you some relief. Eventually you may even be able to numb the area through the use of ice.

Keep in mind that when you are using an ice compress, you should never place ice directly against your soft tissue such as skin or gum. Doing this can actually cause an injury to that tissue, and you already have enough to deal with.

Instead of placing the ice directly against your soft tissue, wrap it in a towel and place the towel against the outside of your cheek. This will allow the cooling temperature to radiate into your mouth, but will allow you to avoid direct contact with the ice.

Simple Painkillers
While you are waiting, you may find that a simple painkiller such as an aspirin or Tylenol can help. As you know, not everyone should take these medications, so if your doctor has warned you off of them, it may be best to skip them.

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