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,

The Connection Between Unhealthy Teeth and Ringing in Your Ears


Posted on 11/13/2017 by Andrew Zeiger
Tinnitus Surprise Smiles AZ 85374-2451
If you have ever suffered from tinnitus-the constant ringing in your ears-you know how maddening the condition can be. Although it differs in severity from person to person, most people with this condition eventually adjust and carry on life as normal while having the constant ringing in the background.

However, you may not need to do this. Depending on the cause of your tinnitus, it may be possible to treat the condition-and let you enjoy blissful silence once again.

One cause of tinnitus is unhealthy teeth. If you have an infection in a tooth or even in the surrounding tissue, it could actually be contributing to your tinnitus.

The Connection Between Tinnitus and Your Oral Health


Here's the deal: as you no doubt know, many areas of your body affect each other in terms of how well each area is able to carry out its day to day activities. When you have an infected tooth-or even an infection in the oral cavity-one result of this can be some slight swelling of tissue in the surrounding area.

Depending on a number of factors such as the location of the infected tooth, the severity of the situation, and other matters, it is possible that the swelling associated with the infection could be causing tissue to press against nerves running to and from the ears. This pressure, in turn, can be interpreted by your brain as noise: hence the tinnitus.

What's more, it does not always have to be a bad infection for this to become an issue. Some people have no idea that they have an issue with a tooth until their ears start ringing.

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