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,

Fluoride Treatment
Surprise, AZ


Fluoride Treatment in Surprise AZFluoride is a mineral that can rebuild and strengthen the enamel of your teeth when applied correctly. Patients who come in contact with fluoride, from their drinking water, from their toothpaste, or from treatment prescribed by their dentist, such as Andrew Zeiger, DDS, will experience fewer problems with decay and the development of cavities. Our team at Surprise Smiles is happy to review the benefits of fluoride treatments with you and how we use it as a preventive measure for our dental patients.

Is fluoride only necessary for children?


Studies confirm that adults benefit from fluoride just as children do. Previously, dentists thought that fluoride was only beneficial when teeth were developing, so fluoride treatments were considered a process used for children. With new research revealing the benefits of long-term and continual application of fluoride, we continue to provide treatments on our adult patients to strengthen their enamel and slow the development of decay. Besides prescribed topical fluoride, Andrew Zeiger, DDS also recommends patients seek toothpaste and mouth rinses that contain fluoride to help fight decay.

Is there fluoride in my drinking water?


Increasingly, cities are adding fluoride to tap water. The best way to know if it is in yours is to contact your water company. Currently, 43 of the 50 largest cities in the U.S. have fluoridated tap water. Patients who get their water from a private well, or who consume mainly bottled water, may not be getting that added benefit and should speak with Andrew Zeiger, DDS about getting adequate fluoride.

Fluoride and a Dry Mouth


Patients may experience a dry mouth or decreased saliva production when taking a certain medication or being treated for a medical issue. Saliva is important to our oral health, without it, we cannot naturally neutralize acids from foods in our mouth, saliva also helps keep our mouths clean by clearing away bacteria and food debris. A lack of saliva leaves us susceptible to tooth decay.

Andrew Zeiger, DDS can help keep your teeth healthy and strong by offering tips for home care, such as drinking more water, and by strengthening your teeth with a fluoride treatment.

At Home and In Office Fluoride Treatments


We offer both at home and in office prescribed fluoride treatments.

At Home Fluoride Treatment


At home, prescribed fluoride treatments are provided in a gel format. We will review the directions with you, but be sure to read all materials before application.

In Office Fluoride Treatment


Andrew Zeiger, DDS is happy to provide you the fluoride treatment you need during your dental visit. With your mouth dry, we can apply the fluoride as a paint, a foam or a varnish treatment. The patient is asked to stay still for a few minutes with the treatment of their teeth. They will then be asked to not consume liquid or food for half an hour following treatment.
