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,

Your Tongue is Unique to You

Posted on 4/20/2018 by Candice
Tongue Bradshaw Family Dental AZ 86314Your tongue may be just a small part of your body, but do you know how hard working it is and how each tongue is unique for each individual?

Just like your heart, your tongue is a muscle that works hard because it is working at all times, even when you sleep your tongue works by moving your saliva forward down your throat. The muscles in your tongue work when you talk, eat, and it works like a strainer for germs because of the lingual tonsils it has.

Another important fact that you should know about your tongue is that it has a unique tongue print, just like a fingerprint is. This means that a person's tongue can be used as a way to identify people. Researchers from China have been experimenting with the creation of a database that includes a 3D impression of an individual's tongue.

Tongue Health

Your tongue is the dwelling place to ten thousand taste buds, and it is the part of your body that is exposed to the most bacteria. If you try to feel your tongue with your mouth, you will be able to sense different bumps, and as your tongue is the home to your thousands of taste buds, it can be the home to numerous germs, too.

And in order for you to have a healthy mouth, it is essential that you take really good care of your tongue as well. An unhygienic tongue can be the cause of different dental problems, since your tongue always make contact with your teeth, it can transfer germs and bacteria that can lead to the decaying of your tooth or teeth.

How to Take Care of your Tongue

Maintaining a clean tongue does not only alleviate dental problems, but it can prevent bad breath as well. In order to clean your tongue, you will need to use a tongue cleaner to thoroughly scrape off germs and bacteria.

If you do not know how to clean your tongue, and this is the first time you have heard such as thing, a dental health professional can help guide you.

Even if we are perceived as having as priority the health of people's teeth and gums, the tongue is just as important to us as the two in achieving a generally healthy mouth.
