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,

Reasons to Get Dental Sealants on Your Teeth

Posted on 8/20/2019 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
Reasons to Get Dental Sealants on Your TeethDental sealants are a thin, plastic coating that's painted on the part of your tooth in the back of your mouth that you chew your food with. This is a simple, painless procedure as it's just a liquid that's painted on your tooth where it then hardens.

Although you may not have heard of this procedure before, it's been around since the 1960's. It's continued over the years because studies show that sealants are both safe and effective.

Why You Should Consider Getting Sealants

One of the most important reasons why you should get dental sealants is to prevent your tooth from decaying. While you may argue that there's fluoride in your toothpaste and the water that you drink, it's only useful in protecting your tooth's smooth surface. This leaves the teeth in the back of your mouth in need of protection.

This is where sealants come in to cover them and keep the germs and food out. If you have this done before your teeth can decay, you'll save yourself a lot of time and money that would have otherwise been spent on things like crowns, fillings, and caps.

Who Should Get Sealants?

As soon as your child's permanent molars come in, they should have sealants put on them. This usually happens when your child is between 5 – 7-years-old. They should also have sealants put on their second permanent molars, which will come in when your child is between 11 – 14-years-old. Additionally, if we notice any pits or grooves in your teeth over the years, we'll recommend getting sealants there and then too.

How Long Sealants Last

You should expect sealants to last around 10 years. However, it's important that we check them regularly to make sure they don't chip or wear away. If we notice anything wrong with your sealants, we can repair them simply by adding more sealant.

This is why you should maintain routine dental appointments with our office. If you don't already have an appointment scheduled, make sure you give us a call to set one up today.
