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,

Do Overbites Require Repair or Can They be Left?

Posted on 10/10/2017 by Andrew Zeiger
 Overbite Surprise Smiles AZ 85374-2451
An overbite or a misaligned set of top teeth that jut out much more than the bottom teeth is most often seen as an aesthetic problem that won't cause too many other issues in life. That's not always the case, though.

There are actual risks to your dental health caused by an overbite, and that's something that we urge our patients to consider when evaluating whether or not to get corrective braces put on.

Consider the Impact on Dental Health in the Future

While an overbite may not seem like a huge problem, if it is severe enough, it can lead to uneven tooth wear and the eventual exposure of the dentin layer of the tooth and the need for more dental work. Over time the teeth will wear out faster and will likely need to be crowned or protected in some other way. Those are all issues that could be avoided with corrective early on enough in life.

Is the Overbite Severe?

We urge everyone suffering from an overbite to come into our office to talk about the severity of the condition and whether or not it could cause problems later on in life. Some overbites are minor and only aesthetic issues that will not result in uneven tooth wear. Others are severe enough that they will cause issues over time and should be corrected for optimal tooth health.

We walk all our patients through their misalignment treatment options and will explain the steps to correct an overbite from start to finish to them during the consultation. An overbite is generally corrected with braces or retainers.

The process can take a year or more depending on severity, but it will improve both the aesthetic of the teeth as well as the function. If you suffer from an overbite that you are concerned about, we urge you to come into the office to find out what we can do for you today.

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