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,

Talk to Us if You Have Swelling In Your Mouth and a Fever
Posted on 8/10/2020 by Candice
Talk to Us if You Have Swelling In Your Mouth and a FeverThere are a number of reasons as to why you have a swelling in your mouth. However, if the swelling is accompanied by a fever, then you may want to consider the presence of an abscess. You may not be able to judge whether or not you have an abscess in your mouth, however, professionals like us are able to detect the presence of abscess and provide timely and effective solutions to treat it without it spreading to the neck, jaw and other body parts.

What Is Abscess?


When you have a slight toothache or infection, this often results in the breeding of bacteria in your mouth. When a slight cavity or tooth decay is ignored, it often results in a bacterial infection. When a bacterial infection is further ignored, it tends to spread to the gums causing periodontal diseases. Periodontal disease can take a long time to be treated and you may have to go through multiple sittings to ensure all bacteria in the mouth are killed. When you ignore periodontal disease or do not get it treated correctly, it could result in the formation of pus which begins to inside the gums themselves. This puss needs to be drained out at the earliest to prevent any complications.

How To Treat It


Although a lot of people may tell you that you can try out a few home remedies to try and treat and get rid of the abscess, this is no time for trial and error. Time is of the essence and ignoring abscess could be potentially life-threatening. The best way to get it treated is to drain out the abscess with the help of professionals like us.

If you want to learn more about abscess and how it can affect your oral health and overall health, feel free to visit our office. If you want to avoid your dental health from getting worse, make sure you get timely dental checkups.
