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,

What to Do Following Unexpected Oral Trauma


Posted on 12/20/2019 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
What to Do Following Unexpected Oral TraumaOur office understands the trauma of losing a tooth. It doesn't matter if it's an accident- or sports-related event.

It can always be a little scary.  If you have small children, the odds are, you may encounter situations involving teeth that are knocked loose or out. Knowing when it is an emergency and when to wait for a quick appointment can help quell your anxiety.

The Most Common Oral Trauma

We would like to provide some information on the most common types of unexpected trauma. The first most common is cracked teeth. The National Youth Sports Safety Foundation (NYSSF) estimates that players who don't wear mouthguards are 60 times more likely to crack their teeth while engaged in a sporting event. When a tooth has been cracked, make an appointment with us. The tooth may require a cap or root canal to avoid infection.

When tooth trauma like that happens, it isn't always limited to the crown area of the tooth. It can happen when a blow at the right angle causes a fractured tooth root. Although difficult to see with the naked eye, schedule a dental check-up. We can see if you need root therapy. It can ensure that necrosis doesn't cause tooth loss down the road. The two injuries that require absolute immediate care are tooth extraction and intrusion.

An extracted or lost tooth should be either reinserted while you immediately seek help or keep the tooth in some milk. Intrusion is when the tooth is knocked into the jawline. Without care, it can die and develop an infection. The tooth has the greatest chance of reattaching if emergency care happens within two hours of either trauma.

Emergency Care

It's important you have the emergency contact numbers for our office. You never know when an emergency can strike. Keep in mind, when the tooth is bent, has an intrusion, or it's knocked out; it's of the utmost importance you seek care within two hours. This can give the tooth a chance of avoiding permanent loss.

If you need more information or to get caught up on our emergency dental procedures. Call today, we are here to assist with all your oral care needs.
