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,

How Long is Exercise Off Limits Following Oral Surgery?

Posted on 9/20/2018 by Andrew Zeiger
How Long is Exercise Off Limits Following Oral Surgery?One of the first things we will tell you to avoid after oral surgery is physical activity. This is a time to relax and allow your body to recover. Any surgery is traumatic on a person, and oral surgery is no exception.

Rest will allow your mouth to develop a blood clot that will protect the bone from infection and returning to strenuous exercise too soon can set your recovery back.

While you should be able to move around right after your surgery, the best way to get better is to follow our advice to rest as much as possible. This will only help you get better and resume your normal activities sooner.

When Can I Exercise Again After Oral Surgery?

One of the main reasons to avoid exercise during the first few days following oral surgery is because there is a risk a dry socket could develop.

This happens when the blood clot that needs to form over the incision gets dislodged and is extremely painful. Having a dry socket could hinder your recovery and force you to visit our office to get treated. It is very uncomfortable and unnecessary when you follow our instructions carefully.

In general, if you are healthy and your recovery is going as planned, you can resume exercising after about 4-days. However, every person is different, and the speed at which you can return to your regular physical activity will depend on your own situation.

The best advice we can give you is to rest and allow that blood clot to form as it should. Rest will prevent additional bleeding and a dry socket. Trust us; you don't want to experience that type of discomfort. Taking a short walk out in the backyard if you feel up to it, after a couple of days of rest, should be fine, but if you are not sure, please give us a call.
