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
epidemic.

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,

Guided Tissue and Bone Regeneration


model of teeth and gums after tissue and bone regenerationPeriodontal disease can be destructive to both gum tissue and bone. Patients who suffer from chronic periodontitis will find that their gum tissue has receded, and their bone mass has decreased. At Bradshaw Family Dental, we can rebuild the tissue, bulk up the bone, and if needed, prepare the area for restoration with a dental implant. We can help you have the smile you want, increase your ability to properly chew foods and give you the confidence in having a healthy smile.

Guided tissue regeneration, sometimes referred to as guided bone regeneration, is a dental procedure we perform to rebuild lost soft and hard tissue in your mouth. Doing this can help prevent the loss of teeth. Healthy bone and gums provide the support that your teeth need to be firmly in place. By rebuilding and strengthening the bone and gums, we are rebuilding the supporting structure for your teeth.

Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is a bacterial infection that many adults suffer from. As gum disease rages, it weakens the tissue that supports your teeth. Gum disease is a result of bacteria in your mouth, bacteria blends with plaque stick to your teeth and can then dip between the teeth and gums where it can be difficult to remove. If you don’t brush and floss regularly to remove plaque, it will harden into a substance known as tartar. Tartar can’t be removed by brushing alone, and because it’s difficult to remove, bacteria can grow and thrive leading to damage to your teeth, gums, and bone.

Guided Tissue Regeneration Process


Guided tissue regeneration is a surgical technique we perform to assist in the rebuilding of damaged tissue and bone. The process includes debridement of diseased tissue, ridge augmentation or bone regeneration. We begin with the removal of diseased tissue, including the source of bacteria. We then work to rebuild the bone with a bone graft procedure. We want to both remove harmful material while inducing a healing response from your tissue. As this healing process is guided, we place a small piece of mesh fabric between the damaged bone and gum to direct the tissue where it should be growing. This will also allow the area to remain undisturbed by unwanted bacteria during the healing process. These steps will encourage the regrowth of bone and healthy connective tissue.

Once healthy tissue and bone have been achieved, we can then move forward in the restoration process with the placement of a single or multiple dental implant rods, followed by the prosthetic specified for tooth replacement. The dental prosthetic may be a dental crown, a bridge, a partial denture or a full denture. All of this information will be discussed before treatment; we will create a treatment plan that begins with healing and ends with restoration based on your needs.

Healthy bone and tissue need to be established before the placement of an implant so that there is sufficient material for the implant to attach. We can help you achieve that tissue through tissue regeneration. Having a healthy smile will improve your look, your comfort, and your overall health.
