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,

Bone Grafting Surprise, AZ

At Surprise Smiles, we understand how hard it can be to need significant reconstructive surgery. Tooth loss, the loss of bone in your jaw, or both can mean a serious change in the way you live your life. We are well versed in restoring form, function, and health to our patients who have experienced tooth and bone loss in the jaw. Most commonly we perform bone grafts on patients who desire Dental Implants, but do not have enough healthy bone in their jaw to support said implants.

What is Bone Grafting?

Bone grafting is a procedure that uses a bone tissue of some sort, usually from the patient’s own body, a cadaver, or from an animal source, to replace missing or damaged bone tissue in the jaw. Bone loss typically occurs for one of the following reasons:
•  Tooth loss
•  Previous tooth extractions
•  Severe Periodontitis
•  Trauma to the jaw

As mentioned above, the bone that we use as the graft can be sourced from a few different places, the most successful bone grafts usually come from the patient. If we use bone from the patient’s own body we will typically harvest it from the tibia, jaw, or hip, depending on where is most feasible.

Why You May Need Bone Grafting

Bone loss in the jaw occurs under a few different circumstances. If you suffer from late stage gum disease and don’t see us for frequent cleanings there is a chance that the bone in your jaw will become infected, and bone loss will occur. If you have experienced tooth loss in the past, or have had teeth extracteed and not replaced, sometimes the bone in the jaw will atrophy from the lack of tactile feedback from the root of the tooth. When something in the body atrophies, tissue is usually lost, in this case the bone in your jaw.

Major Bone Grafting

Major bone grafting is often performed to repair defects in the jaw bone and to make the jaw more able to support dental implants. If you are a candidate for dental implants and need a bone graft, we can sometimes place the implants at the same time that we perform the bone graft surgery. If you suffer from congenital bone defects, or traumatic injury, we can help there too.

Benefits of Bone Grafting

The benefits of bone grafting are mostly restorative in nature. When you don’t have enough bone in your jaw, or if you are missing teeth, or both, your face can appear sunken. Bone grafting and Dental Implants can restore the aesthetic value that you lost as well as give you back the ability to eat and speak as you once did.

Preparing for Your Bone Grafting Procedure

Make sure to follow all instructions that we give to you both before and after the procedure to ensure everything goes smoothly. Always take all medications as directed and according to the dosage instructions. Please make us aware of any allergies that you have prior to the surgery.

Please call us today at (602) 842-4864 to schedule your appointment.
