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,

Snoring is Actually a Symptom of Larger Problems


Posted on 12/20/2019 by Andrew Zeiger
Snoring is Actually a Symptom of Larger ProblemsMany people think that snoring is related to their weight, and while that can be true, it's not the whole story. Snoring is actually a symptom of obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a disorder where an affected person suffers from sleep loss due to breathing problems.

Many people affected by sleep apnea report constantly feeling tired even though they say they get a good night's rest. This is because sufferers of sleep apnea often wake up in the middle of the night because they stop breathing and their brain tells them to do so.

Besides making you tired all the time; sleep apnea can actually harm your dental health. People who snore sleep with their mouth open which means that the mouth stays dry all night. A dry mouth is a great place for bacteria to grow unhindered. Long periods of time with a dry mouth can help the bacteria breakdown your teeth and increase your chance for gum disease.

Sleep Apnea Is Manageable


Though sleep apnea is bad, there are solution. We suggest a machine called a continuous positive airway pressure device (CPAP) which can help you get a better night's rest and keep your mouth healthy. The CPAP machine helps make sure you never stop breathing during the night so that you can get the most out of your sleep. The machine consists of a custom fitted mouthpiece connected to a hose and the machine. The CPAP machine will help to keep air flowing, making it easier to continue breathing.

You may be a good candidate for a CPAP machine, and we're here to help you get one. If you're interested, set up an appointment by calling our office. Once you're here we can assist you in getting your own CPAP machine, so you never have another restless night.
