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,

Times Where a Custom Mouthguard Could Keep Your Teeth Safe

Posted on 2/10/2020 by Candice
Times Where a Custom Mouthguard Could Keep Your Teeth SafeThe thought of wearing a mouthguard is not always appealing. It is easy to recognize how a mouthguard can protect the teeth, but that does not always mean a person will enjoy wearing one.

The fact is that there are many ways a custom mouthguard can prevent problems with the teeth and gums. When made and used properly, they are not the inconvenience that people think they are and are actually something that is very helpful.

Preventing Trauma

One of the most obvious reasons to wear a mouthguard is when you engage in activities that put the teeth at risk. It is a good idea to use a mouthguard when playing sports that involve physical contact. Even sports where people don't collide could lead to trauma that could damage teeth.

Teeth Grinding

Another reason to turn to a mouthguard is to prevent any damage from teeth grinding. Most people grind their teeth while they are asleep. They are not aware that it happens unless someone tells them, or if the teeth grinding damages their teeth. The mouthguard can help prevent the damage that comes from the stress on the teeth when someone grinds them as they sleep.

Why a Custom Mouthguard?

While it is possible to pick up a generic mouthguard to protect the teeth and they do offer some protection, it is better to get one that is custom fit. Everyone's mouth is a different size. The way their teeth fit in the mouth also varies from one person to the next. The best protection from a mouthguard comes when it fits the teeth properly and the best way to do that is through a custom mouthguard.

It is also important to know that the shape and configuration of your teeth changes over time, so it is a good idea to evaluate whether you need a new custom mouthguard from time to time. Call us and let us help get the process started!
