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,

Not All Wisdom Teeth Cause Trouble as They Erupt

Posted on 5/20/2019 by Andrew Zeiger
Not All Wisdom Teeth Cause Trouble as They EruptIt is a common thought that when your wisdom teeth begin to come in, a visit to our office is necessary. They think that the only solution is to pull out the wisdom teeth. The problem is that not everyone will need to have their wisdom teeth removed.

Instead, people can allow their wisdom teeth to grow in. Understanding why this can happen can help people know what to do when their wisdom teeth begin to erupt.

What Wisdom Teeth Need

It is possible for a person to have the wisdom teeth grow in without causing them any problems. In order for this to happen, there are several things that have to happen. The first thing is there has to be enough space in the mouth to fit the teeth. The wisdom teeth come in behind the last set of molars. If you can fit a finger back there and feel soft tissue, it is possible there is enough space for the wisdom teeth to emerge without problems.

The second thing that you need is for the wisdom teeth to grow in properly. Problems can arise if the wisdom teeth are not positioned properly to fit into the mouth or if they grow at an angle or in some other way that creates problems.

The wisdom teeth also need to be free of diseases. It is possible that they may already have bacteria on them that causes them to decay or that could cause problems for the other teeth and gums as the wisdom teeth emerge. Wisdom teeth can fully emerge, partially emerge of become impacted. Most people are not lucky enough to have their wisdom teeth fully emerge and remain healthy, but it can happen.

For more information about this or any other oral health issue, contact the dental professionals at our office to schedule an appointment.
