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,

How Does Tea Stain Your Teeth


Posted on 9/20/2018 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
How Does Tea Stain Your TeethNo one wants to deal with stains. You work hard to remove the stains on your clothes. You try to figure out how to prevent getting more stains.

You may want to take that approach when it comes to stains on your teeth. Learning how tea stains your teeth can help you prevent it and also help you find a way to keep your teeth whiter.

Why It Stains the Teeth

Most people know that coffee can stain the teeth. Coffee is dark and that makes people think it is more likely to stain the teeth than tea is. Tea is actually more likely to stain the teeth than coffee is. This is because tea has a higher tannin concentration. It is the tannin that stains the teeth.

Part of the reason that anything can stain the teeth is because of the structure of the teeth. Although the teeth look like they are completely solid, the enamel of the tooth is actually porous. The enamel of the teeth absorbs the tannins in the tea. Some of this is caught in the teeth and that is what leads to the stains.

How To Prevent It

While it is possible for tea to stain the teeth, that does not mean it has to happen. There are things you can do to prevent the tea from discoloring your smile. The first thing is to realize that the stronger the tea is, the more ability it has to stain the teeth. Green tea contains more tannins than most teas. This makes it more likely to stain the teeth.

Besides limiting the amount of tea and considering the type of tea, there are a few simple things you can do to reduce or prevent the staining. The easiest thing to do is brush your teeth. Twice a day can help remove stains from anything. Brushing right after drinking tea can help more. It is also a good idea to follow a glass of tea with a cup of water. The water can help remove some of the tannins that lead to the stain.

To keep a healthy, white smile, you need to know what can cause discoloration. If you want to learn more, contact the professionals at our offices and ask any questions you have.
