To Our Valued Patients at Surprise Smiles,

Welcome! We are open, looking forward to seeing returning patients, accepting new patients, and operating under normal business hours! The Arizona Department of Health Services (AZDS) is still not recommending any type of closures or modification in hours. We will continue to monitor information coming from both the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and AZDHS and keep you apprised of any changes or updates. We will stay on top of this information and bring it to you as soon as possible through our website, email, and social media.

As we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, our dentists and dental team want to assure you that we are continuing to do our best to make sure it a priority that we are following the latest health and safety guidelines from the CDC, specifically as they relate to the dental industry. We value keeping our patients and staff members safe and comfortable.

As part of our daily standard health and safety protocols, our office follows ‘Universal Precautions’ in order to protect our patients and our staff. These are precautions we have always taken, and are not new. By taking ‘universal precautions’ means we always assume that anyone could potentially be carrying a contagious and dangerous disease. We therefore follow strict guidelines to prevent the transmission of any potential disease, be it COVID-19 (Coronavirus), hepatitis, tuberculosis, HIV, or any other disease. This has been a standard of care we follow, per the CDC, in regard to blood borne pathogens.

These measures include:
•  strict hand washing protocols
•  use of (single use) disposable protective equipment and barriers
•  thorough disinfection of exposed or potentially exposed surfaces after every patient visit
•  disinfection and high-heat steam sterilization of instruments and routine monitoring of sterilization verification
•  continued education on infection control

•  disinfecting common surface areas every 30 minutes
•  providing hand sanitizer in common areas
•  screening everyone who enters our offices based on CDC recommendations
•  offering preprocedural mouth rinse

As state and national health and safety regulations change and evolve during these times, Surprise Smiles is dedicated to monitoring and evaluating our dental practice and office space for any potential risks as we serve our patients and community. We strive to maintain an approach to our dentistry services that is both safe and beneficial to everyone we serve.

We strive to provide a safe, healthy, comfortable, and relaxed environment for everyone that comes into our dental office. We follow the American Dental Association’s Update to Office Procedures During COVID-19 in regard to safe office procedures, workplace hazards, and making decisions for best office practices. We stay informed on recent information given to dentists in this regard, as well as keeping up to date with any changes recommended by the CDC.

Please let us know if you have any questions in regard to our health and safety protocols here at Surprise Smiles. We recognize that it can be challenging during these unprecedented times of COVID-19. We all want to get back to our normal lives, and we will be able to do so, in a safe, wise, and healthy manner. We will be happy to answer any questions that you may have in regard to our dental practice health and safety protocols, cleaning, and disinfecting procedures we follow.

Thank you for continuing to be a valued patient here at Bradshaw Family Dental. We look forward to continuing to serve you and your dental needs through the various services we provide for you, from preventive dentistry, restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, pediatric dentistry, sedation dentistry, dental implants and more!

Guided Tissue and Bone Regeneration

model of teeth and gums after tissue and bone regenerationPeriodontal disease can be destructive to both gum tissue and bone. Patients who suffer from chronic periodontitis will find that their gum tissue has receded, and their bone mass has decreased. At Bradshaw Family Dental, we can rebuild the tissue, bulk up the bone, and if needed, prepare the area for restoration with a dental implant. We can help you have the smile you want, increase your ability to properly chew foods and give you the confidence in having a healthy smile.

Guided tissue regeneration, sometimes referred to as guided bone regeneration, is a dental procedure we perform to rebuild lost soft and hard tissue in your mouth. Doing this can help prevent the loss of teeth. Healthy bone and gums provide the support that your teeth need to be firmly in place. By rebuilding and strengthening the bone and gums, we are rebuilding the supporting structure for your teeth.

Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is a bacterial infection that many adults suffer from. As gum disease rages, it weakens the tissue that supports your teeth. Gum disease is a result of bacteria in your mouth, bacteria blends with plaque stick to your teeth and can then dip between the teeth and gums where it can be difficult to remove. If you don’t brush and floss regularly to remove plaque, it will harden into a substance known as tartar. Tartar can’t be removed by brushing alone, and because it’s difficult to remove, bacteria can grow and thrive leading to damage to your teeth, gums, and bone.

Guided Tissue Regeneration Process

Guided tissue regeneration is a surgical technique we perform to assist in the rebuilding of damaged tissue and bone. The process includes debridement of diseased tissue, ridge augmentation or bone regeneration. We begin with the removal of diseased tissue, including the source of bacteria. We then work to rebuild the bone with a bone graft procedure. We want to both remove harmful material while inducing a healing response from your tissue. As this healing process is guided, we place a small piece of mesh fabric between the damaged bone and gum to direct the tissue where it should be growing. This will also allow the area to remain undisturbed by unwanted bacteria during the healing process. These steps will encourage the regrowth of bone and healthy connective tissue.

Once healthy tissue and bone have been achieved, we can then move forward in the restoration process with the placement of a single or multiple dental implant rods, followed by the prosthetic specified for tooth replacement. The dental prosthetic may be a dental crown, a bridge, a partial denture or a full denture. All of this information will be discussed before treatment; we will create a treatment plan that begins with healing and ends with restoration based on your needs.

Healthy bone and tissue need to be established before the placement of an implant so that there is sufficient material for the implant to attach. We can help you achieve that tissue through tissue regeneration. Having a healthy smile will improve your look, your comfort, and your overall health.
