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,

How a Root Canal Can Save Your Tooth

Posted on 4/10/2018 by Surprise Smiles Office
Root Canal Surprise Smiles AZ 85374-2451Do you have damaged teeth? Are your teeth and gums at a higher risk of getting cavities and infections due to lifestyle choices or medical conditions?

When decay and infection spread into the core of a tooth, the pain can start to become unbearable. A root canal might be the ideal solution for you.

Root canals are one of the most popular dental procedures of all time. However, there are still people who do not know how a root canal works and how it can actually save a tooth.

Some people are even considering tooth extraction rather than a root canal. For the record, both procedures are considered safe. However, a root canal should always be the first option to avoid your whole tooth getting pulled out.

Save Your Teeth, Save Your Smile
A root canal may take a lot of time, but it is all worth it. You will have to undergo several tests and X rays to locate the decay in your tooth before undergoing a root canal.

There is no need to worry about the pain because local anesthesia will be administered before the procedure starts.

Through the process of a pulpectomy, a root canal repairs or removes a damaged area of the tooth that can cause cavities and gum infection. This process can also rid of any decay and prevent your tooth to be fully damaged. A decaying tooth will most likely spread and affect its neighboring teeth.

After the procedure, your tooth that had undergone the procedure will still have the same function. The aftercare is not complicated and the recovery time is not that long. In most cases, there will be no bleeding and excessive swelling.

If you are experiencing tooth pain and think that you could benefit from a root canal, please do not hesitate to call us today!
