Prescott Valley, AZ

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!

Dental Implants - Prescott Valley, AZ


Diagram of the components in a dental implantWhen it comes to dependable tooth replacement options, dental implants are, without a doubt, the most impressive option available today. Where a lot of tooth replacement options tend to fall short, dental implants excel. What are dental implants? They are a permanent tooth replacement option, made of titanium and surgically placed into the bone of your jaw. By placing the implant into the bone of your jaw, bone loss is prevented. In fact, bone growth is encouraged, which bodes quite well for the rest of your natural, healthy teeth.

They offer our patients a permanent tooth replacement option that looks and feels just like their natural tooth and can be taken care of in the same way as a natural tooth. This avoids extra steps in oral maintenance that removable prosthetics require.

Reasons For Dental Implants

There are so many good reasons to replace missing teeth that it’s hard to count them all. Here are a few of the standout reasons for dental implants:
•  Replace one tooth
•  Replace multiple, successive teeth
•  Replace a full arch of teeth
•  Maintain healthy bone structure
•  Avoid further tooth loss
•  Avoid the embarrassment of tooth loss

Eating food with teeth missing can be painful, and in the cases of some foods, impossible. Further, tooth loss can be embarrassing and lead to a loss of self-esteem. It’s easy to stop smiling so much when you know people are just looking at the teeth that you are missing.

The most compelling reason to replace teeth with implants is to encourage a healthy mouth and prevent further tooth loss.

What does the procedure involve?


Implant Site Preparation

To prepare the site we will make a small incision in the gums in order to expose the jaw bone. Before even preparing the site we will familiarize ourselves with the condition of your jaw structure (using X-ray technology) to determine whether you have enough healthy bone to support dental implants. If there isn’t enough healthy bone to support a dental implant, we will need to perform a bone graft.

Placing the Implant

Once the bone has been prepared we will place the implant and suture the gum tissue back in place. After roughly a week we will remove the sutures and allow the implant to heal. Healing time can last from 3 to 12 months. During this time the post will be accepted by the bone in your jaw through a process known as osseointegration.

Attaching the Abutment

Once the implant has been allowed to heal you will return for your final appointment. During this appointment we will place the last two pieces of the implant – the abutment and the crown. The abutment is screwed into the implant and secured in place. It simply provides a surface for us to attach the crown to.

Placing the Crown

The crown is specially designed to match your bite precisely, as well as looking and feeling just like your natural teeth. In cases of multi-tooth or full arch replacement we will have either a bridge or a permanent denture created for your mouth.
