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,

Morning Sickness and Brushing My Teeth


Posted on 8/13/2016 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
A pregnant woman laying down; and recovering from morning sickness.Morning sickness is a miserable phase of pregnancy. As you quickly add items of things that make you sick to your list, your toothbrush can not be one of them. Many women have reported brushing their teeth to triggering nausea. There are things you can do to make brushing your teeth easier when pregnant.

After you have been ill, rinse your mouth with water to wash away the acid, but do not brush immediately. You want to rinse the acid out, but you also want to give your enamel time to recover from the acid attack it just faced.

Wait about 30 minutes after vomiting and then brush your teeth, this will give your enamel the time it needs. Some patients find that smearing a bit of fluoride toothpaste onto your teeth following vomiting helps refresh your mouth and will help strengthen your enamel. The high acidic coating from your stomach can cause dental erosion which can then increase your risk of tooth decay because it dissolves tooth enamel.

How can I brush without getting nauseous?

The idea of sticking a toothbrush in your mouth, tasting minty toothpaste, or brushing your tongue are all things that can make an already nauseous expectant mom even more so. Ignoring your dental health for nine months is not the answer. There are some tips that can help alleviate these ill feelings:

•  Try a toothpaste designed for children. These are often not mint flavored, which is a common complaint.
•  Reduce the amount of toothpaste used. Some patients find that by just spreading the tiniest amount of toothpaste, they can better face brushing their teeth.
•  Ask your dentist, we may be able to prescribe a non-flavored, or minimally flavored toothpaste that can help.
•  Brush using cold water and baking soda. This will not give you the fluoride you need, but will reduce plaque and brighten your teeth.

Dental care during pregnancy is important. For your dental health, and your developing fetus, your dental health matters. Find what works for you.

Please contact us if you have any questions about morning sicknesses effect on your oral health.
