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

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 Your Dentin Heal After Damage?

Posted on 8/24/2020 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
Can Your Dentin Heal After Damage?The internal structure of the tooth comprises the pulp-dentin complex – a system of soft tooth tissues called dentins supported by a pulp of nerve cells and blood vessels that give life to them. The pulp can facilitate the natural regeneration of dentin if the dentin sustains minimal damage or decay. However, if it's badly damaged, the dentin may be lost for good. But with recent advancements in stem cell technologies, researchers around the world have been collaborating to develop dentin regeneration procedures utilizing stem cells. The new procedures will make complex restorations like root canals more convenient.

During root canal procedures, the pulp around badly damaged dentin is extracted to prevent infections from spreading to other tooth roots, and then the emptied root canal is filled up with inactive treatments. But soon, we might be able to stimulate pulp and dentin regeneration after root canal procedures using stem cells.

When is it Possible to Regenerate Dentin?

Like other organs in the body, the teeth have a natural repair mechanism that kicks in to restore damages. When the dentin is damaged due to causes like dental trauma, poor oral hygiene, etc., the pulp converts the stem cells it has stored up into cell tissues called odontoblasts, which generate new dentin tissues. However, if the dentin is badly ruined, the stem cell the pulp has in store might not be enough to generate sufficient quantities of dental tissues. This can bring about various undesirable effects from teeth discoloration to cavities and tooth loss.

Researchers are now looking into procedures that supply the site of the dentin loss with additional stem cells to jump-start dentin regeneration. They're still a long way to go, though. It might take a couple more years before the procedures are fine-tuned for wide use in mainstream dentistry. In the meanwhile, we offer many other effective treatments for dentin damage. Reach out to us today and let's help provide you with effective restoration options for your dental woes.
