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 Stop Tooth Decay?

Posted on 10/5/2020 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
The short answer is no, no patient can stop tooth decay. Everyone's teeth are decaying. There is no avoiding it. The difference between patients with tooth decay is merely how fast are they decaying? Are they well taken care of? Does the patient brush and floss twice a day and rinse their mouth with mouthwash as well? Or do they not brush or floss eat sticking foods late at night? Some factors in making tooth decay speed up include having a dry mouth or a condition where the production or saliva in the mouth is much lower than normal. If people eat foods that tend to cling to their teeth like candy that is bad for your teeth. Frequently eating sugary foods and drinks like carbonated beverages, sugary cereals or ice cream also can speed up tooth decay. Another factor is heartburn. Stomach acid can reflux into the esophagus and erode the back teeth. What Can You do? While you might be able to stop tooth decay there are steps you can take to slow it down. Some of them you have heard from commercials and us. You should brush and flush twice a day and use mouthwash too. Brush with fluoride toothpaste and make sure to brush not just in the morning and at night but after every meal. You should rinse you mouth and consider having dental sealants placed on your teeth. Drink plenty of water and avoid sugar sweets. Consider requesting dental sealants at your next visit. Avoid frequent and sipping of soft drinks. You may also want to consider having fluoride treatments as well. If you have any concerns regarding these treatments or about tooth decay in general, please feel free to reach out to us at any time. We are always here and are always available....
