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,

Dental Braces in Surprise, AZ


Straight smiles are something most people associate with confidence. However, there are many perks to having straight teeth aside from having a straight smile you can be proud of. If you are considering getting braces, the people here at Surprise Smiles Dental can help! All of the different issues that could be fixed by getting braces can be solved through either getting traditional braces, or going with the more modern option of Invisalign.

The Many Reasons to Get Braces


When it comes to your teeth, the point is to always keep them healthy. The healthier smile you have, the healthier you will be overall. When it comes to keeping your teeth healthy, one of the better options for you is straight teeth. Not only are they able to give you more confidence, but they are also able to give you a healthy boost because they are easier to keep clean. Here are some of the most common reasons that people get braces:
•  Teeth that are crowded too close together
•  Teeth that overlap each other, causing places where debris can get stuck
•  An over, or an under-bite
•  Teeth that do not line up properly, causing a malocclusion, or more commonly called a bad bite
•  Teeth that are simply misaligned or pointing different directions

If you notice any of these issues, or the dentist points out that any of these issues are present while going through a regular dental checkup, it is time to get an orthodontic consultation.

The Many Different Types of Braces


There are many different types of braces available to those who need them. They can be more traditional, such as metal, or even nearly undetectable, with trays that slowly shift your teeth. Here are the most common types of braces that could help get your teeth into their proper positions.
•  Metal Braces: these types of braces are placed on the front of the teeth, connected with wire, and use rubber bands to hold everything in place. While these may be a very obvious form of braces, they are quite effective and can work for nearly any dental issue that could be corrected by straightening the teeth.
•  Porcelain Braces: these braces are much harder to notice, because they blend in with the natural color of your teeth, but have the same basic makeup as traditional metal braces. These require a delicate touch as they are easier to break than metal braces, but they can give you the same effect that metal braces can offer.
•  Lingual Braces: these are the braces that go on the inside of your teeth to help straighten them. They are not always an option, as it depends on the needs of your specific situation, but they are very difficult to notice, making it harder for people to tell you are having work done on your teeth.
•  Invisalign: this modern type of braces gives you trays that you change out regularly, that sit in your mouth anywhere from a few hours to the vast majority of your day. They are worn for about two weeks, and each set of trays will provide a different shift to your teeth, eventually giving you the straight smile you were hoping for.

If you have been looking into getting braces, either for yourself or for your child, then Surprise Smiles Dental is the place to go. We can help you get the consultation you need, and let you know what options are going to be the best for your smile. Call us today at (602) 842-4864 to schedule an appointment. Bring out the smile that makes you happy, and show it off to the world!
