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,

Having Surgery Prior to Getting Dentures Can Give You a Better Fix


Posted on 11/20/2018 by Andrew Zeiger
Having Surgery Prior to Getting Dentures Can Give You a Better FixDentures are often the most affordable option people have to replace their natural teeth. They do not come without problems. Many people struggle because their denture never seem to fit properly. It is possible that surgery can help them get a better fit for their dentures. The question people may ask is what type of surgery can help with dentures and why does it help.

When Dentures Don't Fit


It would seem that it is easy to make dentures that fit the mouth easily. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. The shape of the mouth is usually irregular. Even if you have had good oral health, the mouth will still have its own unique shape. That makes getting dentures that fit a little more difficult.

Dentures might not fit because of the shape of the jaw. Some people struggle with a jaw that is uneven. The gums can also be uneven. If a person has had problems with their oral health, it will affect the shape of their jaw and gums. It is better to fix the shape of the jaws and gums before trying to make the dentures fit into the space.

Turning to Surgery


When people hear the word surgery, they may think it involves a major procedure that will put them out of commission for a significant period of time. The surgery to help dentures is not usually a major surgery. It is done in our office and it can involve smoothing the gum line and the bones of the jaw to provide a good base for the dentures. Another surgical procedure that can help with dentures is the extraction of other teeth. Removing these teeth can allow for a more complete set of dentures.

The best way to find out if surgery will help you get a better fit out of your dentures is by consulting with our dental professionals. Contact our office to schedule your next appointment.
