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,

Does Your Oral Hygiene Routine Change with Autoimmune Disorders?


Posted on 11/20/2018 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
Does Your Oral Hygiene Routine Change with Autoimmune Disorders?There are plenty of people who suffer from autoimmune disorders. Many people have one of these conditions and do not even realize that it is an autoimmune disorder.

They do what they have to manage the condition, but they may not do everything their body needs. It is possible that their oral health will feel an impact on their condition. Some changes in their oral hygiene routine can prevent problems from occurring.

How Autoimmune Conditions Affect Your Oral Health

A key to preventing the problems of an autoimmune condition and your oral health is knowing what the potential problems are. The most common autoimmune condition that people suffer from is diabetes. Diabetes can lead to a higher incidence of gum disease and thrush.

This is due to the higher level of glucose in their saliva. Dry mouth is another condition connected to autoimmune conditions. Dry mouth can lead to tooth decay and other oral health issues. People are more likely to suffer from mouth sores and ulcers that are also harder to heal because of their other condition.

Using Oral Hygiene to Prevent Problems

Of all the problems listed above, the key to preventing them is practicing good oral hygiene. A person with an autoimmune condition needs to remain vigilant in their oral health care. They need to make sure they are brushing their teeth and flooding properly.

They need to avoid shortcuts such as brushing for less than 2 minutes or not using a fresh piece of loss between the teeth. The adjustments that people need to make are taking the time to practice their habits the right way.

Another thing people can do is add an antiseptic mouthwash to their regular routine. There are some products designed for people with problems with their immune system. This extra step adds another layer of protection.

Of course, the most important routine a person needs to have is regular checkups at our dental offices. Our professionals can help spot and treat problems before they get worse.

Contact our office today to schedule an appointment to help improve your oral health.
