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,

Morning Jaw Pain Does Not Need to Be Part of Your Routine


Posted on 3/10/2019 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
Morning Jaw Pain Does Not Need to Be Part of Your RoutineIt is normal for people to accept some aches and pains in their body. It is also normal for people to feel these pains every day and not do anything about them. They can attribute the aches and pains they feel to many different things.

They may or may not try to make changes in the way they do things to avoid that pain. If the pain they feel is in their jaw, they may not realize that there are solutions available to them. The key is figuring out what is behind the pain and what the options they have to fix it.

Jaw Pain and Teeth Grinding

One of the most common reasons people wake up with a sore jaw is because of something that happens while they sleep. There are many people who grind their teeth or that clench their teeth together as they sleep. They are not aware that it is happening, but they wake up in the morning with different symptoms. One of those symptoms is a sore jaw.

If teeth grinding or clenching while sleeping is left untreated, it can lead to a variety of problems. From broken teeth to chronic headaches to erosion of the teeth, it is a good idea to do something about the problem. One other issue that people who grind their teeth suffer from is temporomandibular joint disorders. These disorders can result in a sore jaw in the morning.

The Solution to Teeth Grinding

If you can result the issue of teeth grinding, you can also resolve the issue of a sore jaw in the morning. A nighttime mouth guard can help protect the teeth and jaw from the problems that teeth grinding while sleeping creates.

The mouth guards are custom fit and can help adjust the jaw, so it is in the proper position while sleeping. It can help keep the teeth from grinding together and causing damage or leaving you with a sore jaw in the morning. The mouth guards do have one drawback. They do not work if they are not used every night.

For more information about how to get a nighttime mouth guard or any other oral health issue, contact our office to schedule an appointment.
