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,

Most Common Needs for Dental Crowns

Posted on 3/20/2019 by Andrew Zeiger
Most Common Needs for Dental CrownsPeople often imagine crowns as the piece of jewelry that sits on the head of a king or queen. Those are not the only types of crowns that people can have. There is another type that a person can have, even if they are not royalty. Dental crowns have an important place in many people's oral health.

The problem that many people have with dental crowns is the cost. They are not as cheap as other options to replace missing, broken or damaged teeth. In order to figure out whether dental crowns are the best option for you, it is worth learning the most common reasons that other get crowns.

What are Crowns?

Before learning why people need crowns, you need to understand what they are. A crown is a cap that fits over a broken, cracked or misshaped tooth. The crown looks and has the shape of a natural tooth. The crown is cemented in place move the tooth to hold it in place. Some people use an implanted post to attach the crown when the tooth is missing.

Reasons for a Crown

There are many reasons for a crown. A crown can help improve your overall oral health. When teeth are damaged or missing, the other teeth will often move to compensate for the extra space. The gums and the bone can also shrink as a result. The crown can prevent these problems from occurring. People also get crowns when these things happen.

•  Broken, chipped or cracked teeth. A crown placed over a damaged tooth does a few things. It improves the appearance. It also helps strengthen the damaged tooth and prevents more damage from happening.
•  Helping a weak tooth - Teeth that suffer from decay or that require a large filling are often weak. A crown can provide the strength that these teeth lack on their own.
•  Discolored teeth - the crown can cover up teeth that have become discolored.
•  Missing teeth - The crowns can help replace missing teeth or can provide support to the bridges used to replace missing teeth.
•  With dental implants - The crown is attached to the implant replacing the natural teeth.

Crowns serve many useful purposes. Because they last longer and look more natural, they are often the best option for people who struggle to maintain their natural teeth.
