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 You Avoid Dental Stains By Drinking Clear Soda?


Posted on 12/20/2018 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
Can You Avoid Dental Stains By Drinking Clear Soda?If you want to avoid dental stains while continuing to drink your favorite soda, you may believe that clear options are the way to go. Unfortunately, clear sodas are just as damaging to the teeth.

While dark-colored soda may be slightly worse for staining than clear soda due to the coloring, all soda is harmful to the teeth.

How Do Soda Stains Develop?

Staining from soda is caused primarily by two substances: chromogens and phosphoric acid. The chromogens give soda its color, so dark-colored drinks will have more. They stain the teeth, and can easily cause a dingy, yellow appearance to your teeth over time.

Phosphoric acid is also dangerous when it comes to your teeth. While this ingredient will give your teeth the flavor that you enjoy, it weakens the enamel, which protects your teeth. When the enamel is weak, teeth are more susceptible to staining.

It is also worth noting that soda is extremely high in sugar, which is a major food source for oral bacteria. The bacteria will create an acidic byproduct, which will further break down the enamel, making the tooth vulnerable to stains.

What Can You Do about Soda Stains?

Fortunately, there are steps you can take if you are worried about soda stains. Prevention is key, and you'll want to avoid drinking soda whenever possible. If you do choose to indulge, rinse your mouth out with water right away, and use a straw so that the liquid is diverted away from your teeth.

In regards to getting rid of stains, there are many great whitening treatments available, including the in-office whitening offered by our dental practice. If you want to get rid your stains and to enjoy a beautiful white smile that you are proud to show off, give our office a call to discuss your whitening options.
