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,

Can Teeth Regenerate?


Posted on 12/10/2018 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
Can Teeth Regenerate?With self-healing mutant superheroes dominating the big screen, including Wolverine and Deadpool, the question may have crossed your mind – do they brush and floss regularly, or do their teeth just naturally regenerate from any decay and damage they experience?

While we can't answer that hypothetical, what about in real life, with your own teeth? Do you have the hidden superpower of auto dental reconstruction?

As of Right Now, The Answer is No

Unfortunately, the body does not naturally possess the ability to repair teeth, hence why it is so important to take care of the ones you have for life. As it stands currently, once you have your permanent adult teeth, there are no secret meditations you can do on top of remote mountains to bring back your smile.

But there is hope in the short future, thanks to the constant march of science. Doctor Jeremy Mao (Professor of Dental Medicine) has revealed a startling and near magical property of stem cells to do what was previously thought impossible. His research and discoveries, culminating in a procedure known as "cell-homing-based tooth regeneration", is not a fictional superpower, but a real possibility that patients in the future may use to regenerate their lost or damaged teeth in as little as nine weeks.

This is also regeneration in the truest sense, not the repair or regrowth of an old tooth, but the development of a brand new tooth that rapidly blooms to take the place of the lost one. (No implanting or risk of rejection involved.) The procedure is expected to cost around $3,000 per tooth once approved, which is well within the range of the cost of currently used implant technology.

Soon, sprouting a brand-new tooth may be a decision as easy to make as growing your hair out. We're not there yet (and estimates place this tech far into the indeterminate future), so for now remember to take good care of the teeth you have! If you have any questions about oral hygiene or the latest dental developments, we'd love to hear from you, so please give us a call!
