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,

What Pain in Your Wisdom Teeth is Saying to You


Posted on 12/20/2017 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
Wisdom Teeth Bradshaw Family Dental AZ 86314
Some people are lucky enough to be born without the wisdom tooth. But for others, they need to see us right away for x-rays, so we can determine the condition of the extra teeth.

Generally, teens as young as 17 and young adults (about 25) should go to the dentist to have the wisdom teeth removed. If the tooth is impacted, you will really feel the pain. In which case, you don't need a reminder to see a dentist right away.

Impacted Tooth vs Infected Tooth

Impacted is a term we use when the tooth doesn't break through the gum. Instead, it continues to grow sideways and start to push toward the other teeth. How do you know if you have impacted teeth?

There's a throbbing pain at the back of your jaw, mostly around the gums. Also, you will notice a lot of swelling in the affected area, extreme sensitivity, bleeding and redness. In some cases, it's even too difficult to open your mouth wide. Headaches are also another red flag for impacted teeth.

Aside from impacted, not going to the dentist for a checkup may result in infection in the wisdom tooth. This happens when the tooth fails to break the surface. The top of the tooth is still covered by a thin strip of gum, which makes the wisdom tooth invisible to the naked eye.

However, bacteria can still penetrate the strip, which causes infection. This is called pericoronitis. In this case, you will really notice it because of the pain involved.

Both impacted and infected tooth may not become painful right away, which can be a problem in itself because you are made to believe that you have no issue with your wisdom teeth at all. X-rays should help us find out if your tooth is infected or impacted.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please call us at (928) 277-0076 today.
