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,

Signs Your Wisdom Teeth Need to Come Out


Posted on 6/23/2018 by Andrew Zeiger
Wisdom Teeth Surprise Smiles AZ 85374-2451As a teen or young adult, you might have heard other people talk about their wisdom teeth being extracted. But what if you've never done that? Some people don't have issues with their wisdom teeth, but they may still need to have them removed.

If you don't know what to look for and don't visit us regularly, it's possible you need to have these teeth extracted and don't know it. Here are some of the signs that could indicate that your wisdom teeth need removed.

They Hurt
If you have pain in the back part of your mouth or jaw, it could likely be caused by your wisdom teeth. These teeth come in at the back of your mouth, and if there's a problem there, you're likely to feel pain.

Even if you don't see your wisdom teeth, they could be the cause of the problem because they could be impacted. This means that instead of the tooth pushing upwards through the gum, it went sideways. It can press into the tooth next to it, leading to pain, improper alignment, and other issues.

Your Wisdom Teeth Have Become Infected


Tooth and gum infections don't always hurt. In fact, if the root of your wisdom tooth or teeth has died, you may not feel any pain at all. However, the infection may still be there. Removing the wisdom teeth won't remove the infection, but it does prevent further bacteria from using the damaged tooth as a way of entering your body. Once the wisdom teeth are done, antibiotics will clear up the infection.

There Are Signs of Gum Disease Near the Back of Your Mouth


If you notice that your gums are bleeding or hurt when you brush towards the back of your mouth, it may be a sign that you have gum disease. If it seems like this is only happening in the back part of your mouth, it could be connected to your wisdom teeth. Come see us today so we can do some x-rays and find out.
