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,

Milk Can Help in the Prevention of Gum Disease

Posted on 6/22/2020 by Candice
Milk Can Help in the Prevention of Gum DiseaseNothing is quite as satisfying as an ice-cold glass of milk, especially when paired with a wedge of rich, fudgy cake. While we're not going to shame you for the occasional sugary treat, we would much rather you reach for the glass of milk more often than the cake! Milk is packed full of benefits for your oral health, and helping prevent gum disease is just one of the many positives that this refreshing, delicious drink can offer.

Fight Gum Disease with a Glass of Milk

Gum disease isn't just an illness that attacks your mouth; if left untreated, it can cause systemic infection, potentially leading to heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.
Early signs of gum disease include red and swollen gums, bleeding when you brush and floss, and bad breath. Over time, it can lead to permanent damage to your soft tissues and eventually tooth loss. However, what if you could fight off the symptoms of gum disease (also known as periodontal disease or gingivitis) with something as simple as a glass of milk?
Researchers have discovered that certain peptides found in cow's milk actually combat the inflammation-causing enzymes found in the disease-causing bacteria. Furthermore, the lactic acid in milk can also ward off gum disease, leading to a healthier mouth. The added bonus of calcium can't be overlooked: drinking a glass of milk can lead to stronger bones and teeth. With all of these perks, why wouldn't you reach for a glass of milk?
Of course, not all of us can enjoy milk due to allergies or lactose intolerance. Scientists are working on finding ways to add these bacteria-fighting peptides to toothpaste or even a medicine that can be applied directly to the gums.
As for now, though, drink up! That glass of milk can have long-lasting health benefits for your smile. However, it shouldn't be your only line of defense against gum disease; regular dental appointments are also extremely important to keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Please give our office a call today to schedule an appointment with a cleaning and allow us to help you prevent gum disease and keep your smile healthy and beautiful!
