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,

Are You a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?


Posted on 10/10/2016 by Andrew Zeiger
A diagram of how a dental implant works.Losing your teeth has a huge impact on your life. Teeth are necessary for proper eating and speaking. When you lose them, whether it is just a few or a whole bridge, these abilities are greatly affected.

For the longest time, dentures were the method of choice for replacing missing teeth. But dentures can pose several issues, such as sores, slipping or even falling out. Now, there is an alternative - dental implants.

What are Dental Implants?


Dental implants are titanium rods that are surgically placed into your jaw and left to fuse with the bone. The implants act as the anchors and support for the prosthetic teeth and are usually screwed in place, although there are some implants that offer removable teeth.

Benefits
Even though implants require a surgical procedure and a lengthy healing time, they have quite a few benefits:

•  They look and act just like real teeth.
•  They are comfortable. They don't come loose or fall out like traditional dentures can. Because the prosthesis is supported by the implants, not your gums, you don't have to worry about denture sores.
•  They are convenient. If you choose implants that are screwed in place, they are not removable, therefore eliminating the need to take them out every night for cleaning or placing them every morning with dental adhesive.
•  Your jawbone will be protected. When you lose teeth, the bone mass in your jaw is likely to begin to deteriorate. Implants act like tooth roots, slowing and even stopping bone loss.
•  You will have more self-confidence.

Are Dental Implants Right For You?


Implants aren't for everyone. First, even though they can slow or stop bone loss, you need to have sufficient bone mass to begin with in order to support the implants. Not enough mass means that the implants have little with which to fuse, resulting in weak implants. You also need to have good oral health overall.

If you are interested in dental implants as an alternative to traditional dentures, contact our office dentist to find out if you are a good candidate.
