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,

Multiple Tooth Extraction



Some of the dental tools used for a Multiple Tooth Extraction in Surprise AZYour teeth are a crucial element in your mouth. They have some different, very important, responsibilities that they perform every single day, including biting and chewing, controlling airflow for proper speech, even providing you with a beautiful smile. The teeth are also responsible for maintaining the health and strength of your jawbone. Your teeth are strong. In fact, they are the hardest substance in the human body. Taking care of them is necessary for keeping them strong, healthy, and fully functional. However, even with the best care, issues can still arise. If damage occurs, we do everything we can to save your teeth, using treatments such as crowns and root canals, so that they can continue to perform their important tasks. In some cases, the affected tooth may not be salvageable. Sometimes, multiple teeth need to be extracted. At Surprise Smiles, we can perform the procedure for you, help you to heal, and help you to replace those missing teeth.

Reasons for Multiple Tooth Extractions


There are several reasons that multiple teeth may need to be extracted, including such issues as:

•  Gum disease. As gum disease progresses, oral bacteria fall below the gum line. Once there, they start attacking the periodontal ligaments and the jawbone. The longer the disease goes untreated, the greater your risk of experiencing loose teeth and tooth infections.
•  Severe tooth decay. Untreated cavities continue to grow. As they do, the structure of the tooth deteriorates. Fillings only compromise the tooth, and there may not be enough natural structure to support a crown.
•  Oral trauma. Oral trauma can severely damage your teeth, causing cracks to extend below the gum line. The teeth may even shatter.

The Extraction Process


Before deciding to extract your teeth, we first perform a thorough oral exam. We look at the visible structure of your teeth and take X-rays to see the extent of the damage, if any, below the gum line. We will explore every option available before choosing extraction. If extraction is the only option, we will then begin your procedure.

Extraction begins with a local anesthetic. Sedation may also be provided if you are feeling anxious. There are two methods of extraction, simple and surgical. A simple extraction involves gripping the tooth and moving it back and forth to widen the periodontal ligament until the tooth lifts out of the socket. Surgical extractions are more complex. This procedure involves making incisions at the gum line to expose the affected teeth and the jawbone. We then work to completely remove the teeth, including any fragments if the teeth are broken and suture the wounds closed.

Recovering After Your Extractions


Having multiple teeth extracted is very different from having only one tooth extracted. There is a recovery period involved, during which you should rest. You should avoid any strenuous activities, including bending, lifting, and working out. You will need to be careful of what you eat, sticking with soft, or even liquid, foods for at least a few days. We will provide you with a set of specific aftercare instructions that will help you to deal with common post-extraction issues, such as pain, swelling, and bleeding. By following your instructions, your recovery should be uneventful, and you should heal fully.

Replacing Your Missing Teeth


Because your teeth are so important, the ones that are extracted should be replaced. There are a few different options available, and we can help you to determine the best solution for your needs. Multiple tooth replacement options include:

•  Bridges, which can replace one to three missing teeth.
•  Partial dentures, which can replace larger sections of missing teeth.
•  Dental implants, which can replace any number of missing teeth.

While we try to save damaged teeth, it is not always possible, and therefore the affected teeth need to be extracted. For more information on multiple tooth extractions, call Surprise Smiles at (602) 842-4864 today.
