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 Laser Treatment
Surprise, AZ

LANAP Therapy at Surprise Smiles in Surprise, AZ.Scientists began exploring the use of laser for dental treatments in the 1960s, and they have been in use since the 1990s. Though the idea of laser near in your mouth sounds scary, it really is not. Like all other technological advancements in the medical and dental field, laser dentistry has greatly improved the efficiency of dental treatments.

At Surprise Smiles we offer various treatments including dental cleanings, dental fillings, tooth extractions, and more. Additionally, we also offer dental exams. Some of these treatments may require the use of dental laser for enhanced efficiency.

What Can Dental Laser Treat?


The use of laser for dental treatments is different than that of cold laser in phototherapy. The field of dentistry requires the use of different laser technology. It can treat:
•  Tooth decay- A dentist may use laser to target and remove the decaying part. They may also use the laser to prepare the surrounding area for a dental filling.
•  Biopsy – Some dentists also use a laser to perform biopsy or lesion removal process in which they remove a small part of the tissue to identify whether it is cancerous or not. The same process can also be used to remove painful cankers in the mouth through the lesion removal.
•  Gum Disease – Gum diseases are pretty common and can resultantly require a root canal. Dentists use lasers to remove bacteria from the gums during the process. Some even use a laser to reshape the gums after various treatments.
•  Teeth Whitening – who doesn't want white teeth? Laser dentistry can help you get sparkling white teeth. Dentists apply peroxide bleach to the teeth and then use a laser to activate it. Using a laser can speed up the whitening process and also produce better results getting rid of stains.


Benefits of Dental Laser Treatment?


Besides allowing for increased efficiency, dental laser treatments have multiple other benefits.
•  They can be less painful than some other dental procedures and can potentially reduce the need for anesthesia.
•  They can reduce anxiety or stress induced by some dental tools such as drills.
•  It can protect and maintain the tooth's structural integrity and health during cavity removal and other invasive treatments.
•  They also enhance the overall efficiency by speeding up a lot of the time-consuming dental procedures.
•  They can also keep bleeding and inflammation in the gum during and post-treatment to a minimum.


How do Dental Lasers Work?


All medical and dental lasers deliver energy in the form of light, which dentists use to perform various operations such as tissue vaporization or cutting. It can also act as a heat source as it does in the teeth whitening process. It delivers heat, which activates the peroxide bleach and speeds up the whitening/bleaching process.

At Surprise Smiles, we use laser dentistry to protect your smile and dental health and hygiene. Dental laser treatments allow for enhanced precision during essential treatments and also aids in the maintenance of structural integrity of the teeth during treatments such as cavity removal.
