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,

Why Do Some People Need Sensitive Teeth Toothpaste More Than Others?
Posted on 8/10/2020 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
Why Do Some People Need Sensitive Teeth Toothpaste More Than Others?Tooth sensitivity, or dentin hypersensitivity refers to a condition in which the teeth (or a tooth) become more sensitive to hot or cold temperatures. The nerves of the sensitive teeth react more vigorously to temperature changes, causing sharp pains and discomforts. These symptoms are usually triggered by the intake of foods and drinks that are hot, cold, sweet, or acidic. Other possible triggers include a cold breeze, brushing and flossing, and rinsing the mouth with alcohol-based cleansers.

Some people need sensitive teeth toothpaste more than others because the condition can be mild or intense, can go away on its own or with a simple treatment, or can linger persistently. It all depends on the cause of the teeth sensitivity as well as your oral habits.

Who's More Vulnerable to Sensitive Teeth?


Teeth sensitivity usually occurs when the enamel, the outer protective layer of the teeth, wears off significantly, exposing the highly sensitive inner layers. People with naturally thinner enamel are usually more susceptible to tooth sensitivity, as are people who have worn enamels resulting from years of using hard brushes or brushing too hard, teeth grinding, and even excessive consumption of acidic foods and beverages.

Gum recession also induces tooth sensitivity as the receding gums expose parts of the teeth that are more sensitive to temperature. Other conditions that might expose sensitive parts of the teeth include chipped or broken teeth, tooth decay, worn-out fillings or crowns, or conditions that expose the teeth more acids like Gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). Your teeth can also become temporarily sensitive after dental restoration procedures involving fillings, crowns, and teeth bleaching.

Whether your tooth sensitivity is mild, intense, short-lived, or chronic, it's always a good idea not to rely on sensitive teeth toothpaste only. You should call our dentists for inquiries and examinations when experiencing sensitive teeth. During an appointment, our dentists will examine your dentition inside out to probe the root cause of the sensitive teeth. We'll then offer highly personalized recommendations for the treatment.
