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!

What are Dentures

Posted on 9/19/2022 by Candice
The purpose of dentures, which are removable dental appliances, is to replace missing teeth. They are formed from artificial or prosthetic teeth that are just attached to a supporting structure and they are removable. They provide the most affordable method to restore missing teeth because they are significantly less expensive than dental implants or bridges. Dentures are made to replace missing teeth. They could exist in full or in part. Complete dentures encompass your entire upper or lower jaw. Use partials to replace one or a few missing teeth. Denture Adhesive If your dentures slide about too much in your mouth, denture adhesive might be helpful. In certain situations, our dentist might suggest transitioning to dental implants. They serve as a long-lasting substitute for roots and teeth. Cleaning Your Dentures Dentures could initially feel strange. It can be not comfortable to speak and eat. You should be careful since wearing dentures may make it harder for you to detect hot foods and beverages. It is possible that you are not even aware you are biting into a bone in your food. One of our dentists might want to visit you frequently, in the beginning, to make sure the dentures fit comfortably. Over time, your mouth will change, necessitating the replacement or adjustment of your dentures. It is crucial to keep your dentures clean to avoid stains, bad breath, and sore gums. Use a denture cleaning product to brush them each day. Dentures should be taken out of your mouth at night and soaked in water or a denture-cleaning solution. Your dentures could seem flimsy as your cheek and tongue muscles grow. Minor discomfort or irritation are frequent occurrences. When your mouth becomes used to the dentures, these problems ought to go away. To schedule a consultation with one of our dentists, call us right away....
