Most people are postponing much needed dental procedures, since they are not considered an emergency during the lockdown. Since the beginning of the Coronavirus crisis, many have not been able to get preventative medical and dental treatment as a way to stop the rapid growth of the virus. However, according to theArizona State Board of Dental Examiners, we have received orders that as of May 1st, dental offices will “re-open” for elective treatments. This means that dentists will no longer only offer emergency care, but will also start to offer services for elective procedures. This means that you will be able to get several pending procedures such as braces, teeth cleaning, implants, dentures, and so on. If you have a pending dental treatment that you have not been able to move forward with then you can visit us at Somos Dental for an affordable and professional service in the Phoenix area.

So, is it safe to visit the dentist now?

visit the dentist

Once the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic started to grow, every non-essential activity had to cease in order to flatten the curve and stop hospitals from overcrowding. Most basic health care units had to stop operations in fear of becoming focal infection centers. These included dental offices since they actually work with mouth fluids. The main concern is that even though every dental office is mandated to clean and sanitize their machines and tools, that this may not be enough precautions to deal with a virus. Once someone undergoes a procedure that requires the use of a drill or a scaler, there is the possibility that it can leave live viruses in the air up to 3 hours. Having potentially contaminated zones can be dangerous for both the patient and dentist, which was why the federal and state government had mandated to ceases non-emergency interventions.

At Somos Dental we know the risks of dental procedures and potential viral infections. That is why we use, clean, sanitize, and sterilize every machine, tool, and material that is involved in every single procedure. We also use air cleaners and purifiers in order to offer the safest possible environment for our patients.

What exactly falls under elective treatment?

Elective treatment includes several dental and aesthetic procedures that do not require immediate attention, since they do not present an immediate threat to the patient’s health. Many of these were not the specified conditions and procedures from the American Dental Association, which mainly applied to emergency care. Some of the new dental service procedures that can be attended to now are:

  • Braces
  • Braces maintenance/ tightening
  • Cleanings
  • Deep Cleanings
  • Implants
  • Dentures
  • Etc.

Should I go to the dentist while coronavirus is going around?

So, how can you take care of your dental health during quarantine?

As of April 4, 2020 at 11:32 pm (MST), the United States of America is the country with the most confirmed cases of COVID-19 (also known as ‘Coronavirus‘) in the world. This has led the president of the U.S. to declare a state of emergency for the entire country. Furthermore, several states have mandated social distancing and quarantines. Since we, Somos Dental, are located in Arizona (which has also been declared in a state of emergency) we have decided to comply with the American Dental Association and stop all elective dental treatment (such as, braces, cleanings, fillings, crowns, etc.) and only attend patients for dental emergencies. Right now, most health care providers have taken the same measures and precautions.

stay at home

So, Should I go to the dentist when there are coronavirus cases everywhere?

The short answer is no, unless you are in pain. You should not seek dental treatment unless there is a dental emergency. If you had an important dental appointment scheduled with us or with any dental health professional, please contact us, or try contacting your dentist through phone, email and social media is also a great way to get a faster response. Do not go out during these critical times, since you can put your overall health in danger, and others that fall under the category of at-risk individuals. Follow all instructions given by your state and do not visit any dental office.

So, how can you take care of your dental health during quarantine?

  1. Keep up your regular dental health routine. A healthy dental health routine includes brushing 3 times daily and flossing at least once a day.
  2. Do not use tools that can build up bacteria or viruses such as tongue scrapers.
  3. Avoid doing activities that can lead to dental damage.
  4. Avoid abusing foods and substances that can damage or corrode your teeth such as:
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Tobacco
  • Sweets
  • Etc.

In conclusion, pay close attention to your dental health. Any accident could leave you with damaged teeth for some time until social distancing is lifted, and you can get proper dental assistance.

Other general tips for the Coronavirus outbreak, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), are the following

  • Wash your hands frequently: Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.
  • Maintain social distancing: Maintain at least 1-meter (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
tips for the Coronavirus outbreak
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Practice respiratory hygiene: Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
  • If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early: Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.
  • Stay informed and follow advice given by your healthcare provider: Stay informed on the latest developments about COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Follow advice given by your healthcare provider, your national and local public health authority or your employer on how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.

How to take care after a tooth extraction

How to take care after a tooth extraction
Tooth-extraction-aftercare

Tooth extraction aftercare.

Healing properly after a tooth extraction depends on how well you stick to the routine given to you by your dentist. Maybe you got your wisdom teeth removed, maybe you got a tooth removed for a dental implant, or maybe you got several teeth extracted to start wearing braces. Now you’re asking yourself “How do I care for myself after a tooth extraction?”. Your dentist may have given you instructions on how to let your tooth wound scar over with minimal issues. However, you may still have some questions regarding the aftercare process. So, in this blog entry we will cover some frequently asked questions. The key to a successful recovery lies in taking care of clotting blood, keeping your mouth clean, and keeping the tooth socket food-free for the first few days after your extraction. Follow the next several tips to achieve a fast and healthy healing process.

Take care of the blood clot

The most important point to follow in the aftercare process is to preserve the blood clot that forms in the socket where the tooth used to be. Taking care of this blood clot can prevent any complications that can lead to serious setbacks such as infection and a dry socket. Taking care of the blood clot will also leave good tissue for a future dental implant.

Keep a soft diet after the procedure

Maintaining a soft food diet for the first week is common, especially after going through an extraction. If your dentist or orthodontist has asked you to keep a soft food diet, then this list will have foods that are acceptable. Procedures that require a soft food diet can include dental extractions, wisdom teeth extractions and other services offered at Somos Dental. This past Somos Dental post, can give you more information. Here is the list of soft foods:

keep-a-soft-diet-after-the-procedure
  • Liquefied soups: A good way of staying hydrated after the dental procedure.
  • Broths: Like soups, broths are good to eat after a dental or orthodontic treatment. Broths are also a way to stay hydrated, which is important for proper recovery.
  • Ice cream: The cold helps with inflammation.
  • Puddings and jellies: These are low-sugar options to stay hydrated.

Keep good dental hygiene

A day after the extraction you can start brushing your teeth as usual. However, you will need to avoid the extraction area. Instead of brushing, rinsing with saline water will take care of the dental socket area’s health.

Do saline rinses

do-saline-rinses

When the blood clot has formed, you will need to rinse your mouth with a warm saline solution. The saline solution will kill any bacteria that can complicate the aftercare process. You can make this solution yourself. Just add a pinch of salt to a cup of warm water (not too hot!). Rinse your mouth twice a day, this will help you recover correctly, which is necessary for any future dental implants.

These aftercare tips can be followed, after a tooth extraction or any other kind of dental treatment. If you notice any changes, have questions or wish to schedule an appointment with an oral health professional, call us at 623-869-1091.At Somos Dental we have a great team of professionals!

Tips for brushing teeth with braces

Tips-for-brushing-teeth-with-braces
how-do-i-brush-my-teeth-with-braces

One of the first questions people ask once they get braces is: “How do I brush my teeth with braces?”

Usually, an orthodontist will give you detailed instructions, but you may still have some doubts about how to brush your teeth with braces.

Braces are a type of orthodontic intervention, that helps correct alignment and occlusion issues. Once someone undergoes this type of orthodontic procedure, the brushing process will become more difficult than usual. Although, the difficulties of cleaning your teeth with orthodontic appliances can be challenging at the beginning, the benefits of braces far outweigh those difficulties.

There are plenty of instruments and brushes on the market for people who have braces. Of course, you can always sufficiently clean your teeth with a traditional toothbrush, but many of the products and instruments available can help make cleaning a bit easier. These products tend to save you time and effort. The only downside is the additional expense. In this blog post we will discuss hygiene techniques, with various instruments, that will help you achieve proper cleaning of your teeth and braces.

Traditional toothbrush

To clean your braces properly your toothbrush must have a small head and soft bristles. It is important that your toothbrush meets these characteristics, because you must be able to reach all areas without damaging the dental braking mechanisms and/or your gums.

traditional-toothbrush

Interdental brush

Interdental brushes are specifically designed to reach difficult areas that most traditional toothbrushes cannot. These brushes come in different sizes, depending on the size of your braces or the size of your teeth. They can be carried with you for any occasion, where you may need to remove food scraps from between your teeth or braces.

interdental-brush

Floss

One of best habits when you have braces is, flossing. If you’ve never used dental floss to clean your teeth, you may find it difficult at first. Follow this link to see the proper way to clean your teeth with dental floss.

floss

Sonic toothbrush

This type of toothbrush is relatively new to the market. It is a toothbrush that vibrates at a speed of 40,000 times per minute. This is a very practical way to brush your teeth when you have braces.

sonic-toothbrush

Oral irrigator

An oral irrigator is also an excellent option for someone with braces. As previously mentioned, flossing with braces can be difficult, this is an alternative to that issue. The oral irrigator covers both the functions of the interdental brush and dental floss, because it cleans both the back and the front of your teeth.

DIY teeth cleaning and teeth whitening in just a few minutes?

DIY-teeth-cleaning-and-teeth-whitening

Be careful!

We all want one of those enviable, white smiles that popular actors and actresses from Hollywood seem to have. However, we know that teeth whitening treatments can be expensive. This is the main reason that a lot of people rely on sketchy DIY videos and teeth whitening tips that can seriously and permanently damage their teeth. Here are some examples of dangerous phrases/tips:

  • DIY teeth cleaning hacks
  • DIY Teeth whitening tips
  • Tartar removal without going to the dentist
  • Cheap DIY teeth whitening tips
  • Etc.

Those titles may seem appealing and attractive especially to those who want fast results or to people who just don’t want to go to the dentist to get the proper teeth cleaning, teeth whitening, and tartar removal services. However, these DIY teeth cleaning and teeth whitening tips are usually offered by individuals who don’t have any kind of dental training. Generally, these are people who just want to write clickbait material to get money, while putting millions of people’s dental health in serious danger.

tartar-removal-teeth-whitening

The main reason these kinds of videos, articles and posts are popular, comes down to the fact that they promise to offer the same results that you would get from professional teeth cleaning, tartar removal, or teeth whitening service. They try to make you believe that by using cheap ingredients that everyone has at their homes is the same as being in the exam chair. Some common ingredients for DIY teeth whitening procedures are:

  • Apple vinegar
  • Charcoal
  • Lemon juice
  • Baking soda
  • Diluted bleach

Dangers of going through DIY teeth cleaning procedures

Even though some of these ingredients don’t seem harmful at all, they can cause serious and even permanent damage to your dental health such as:


Slowly eroding your tooth enamel. Tooth enamel is the substance that covers your teeth and gives them their shiny white finish. The continuous (or even just a few times) exposure to these ingredients as prescribed in the average DIY teeth cleaning guide, can permanently damage your tooth enamel.

You can severely damage your gums. Since some, or even the mixture of these ingredients can result in a high-acid solution there is a good chance of gum swelling, damage to the gums, and even infection.

Increased risk of tooth sensitivity. The use of these substances can also irritate and damages your whole mouth, tooth sensitivity can start to become a problem.

Everyone should know the dangers of these so-called popular teeth cleaning, tartar removal, and teeth whitening DIY guides and tips. Don’t be fooled! And if you are looking for teeth whitening, tartar removal and teeth cleaning services, look no further than Somos Dental. We have a team of professionals with plenty of expertise.

Need a Deep Dental Cleaning? Know the Symptoms

Need-a-deep-dental-cleaning-feature

If your dentist ordered X-rays and has discovered that you have been losing gum tissue, he or she may suggest that you get a deep dental cleaning procedure. This procedure is important, mainly so that you don’t lose any further gum tissue and so that you can prevent any possible diseases that can end in tooth losses.

Need-a-deep-dental-cleaning

A deep dental cleaning is a treatment that consists of cleaning between the gums and teeth down to the roots. Just as in regular cleaning, the dentist will clean the teeth, the gum lines and the sides of the teeth. The main difference is that in a deep dental cleaning they continue to remove tartar buildup down to the root of the teeth. The American Academy of Periodontology recommends that dentists offer a deep dental cleaning service when an X-ray shows bone loss and also when a complete dental health assessment shows a 4-millimeter gum socket between the gum and the tooth.

When a deep dental cleaning is necessary: symptoms

Sometimes people who suffer from gum diseases, do not have the slightest idea that they may need a deep dental cleaning service. These are some symptoms to look for especially since gum diseases can be painless so you may not know you have one:

  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth
  • Pus coming out of the gums
  • Swollen gums, bleeding gums, or gums that are not close to the teeth

If you have any of the symptoms listed and you have started to notice that something is not right regarding your dental health, then you should contact a dentist so they can make a professional assessment. At Somos Dental we can make a professional assessment, so you know what the appropriate treatment for your specific case is.

When-a-deep-dental-cleaning-is-necessary-symptoms

Diagnosing dental health problems

At a dental office, your dentist will use an instrument called a probe. A probe is used to measure the distance between your teeth and your gums. When there is a considerable amount of space between teeth and gums then that is called a socket. A socket is a space in which there is more than 5mm of distance between teeth and gums that is where bacteria can form. If this is the case your dentist will recommend you get a deep dental cleaning procedure, so that you can protect your bones and prevent any tooth loss.

Diagnosing-dental-health-problems

The decision to provide a deep cleaning is part of a dental health professional’s knowledge. But, without a doubt, a deep cleaning should only be considered when it is the best option for the specific case. At Somos Dental we have a team of dental health professionals who have had experience in orthodontic treatments and the entire deep cleaning process. You can contact us through the means listed on this page or by visiting us at any of our 4 locations: Downtown, Desert Sky, Mesa, and Camelback.

What should you eat after a tooth extraction? – Soft Food Diet

Somos Dental tooth extraction - soft food diet

Once an important treatment with your dentist or an orthodontist is performed, they may recommend maintaining a soft food diet for some time. So, you may be asking the following questions depending on your particular case:

• What can I eat after my wisdom teeth are removed?

• What can I eat after putting on braces?

• What can I eat after a dental implant?

• What can I eat after a tooth extraction?

This post will go over what you can eat after an important dental procedure. This includes dental extractions, wisdom tooth extractions and other services offered at Somos Dental.

The first few days after your procedure are critical, which is why following the diet you are given is so important. Your dentist or orthodontist will determine and provide you with the care you need. It is also a great idea to make sure you have a family member, your partner or a close friend to support you with things like transportation and the essentials hours before and after the procedure (especially if it involves the use of anesthesia).

These are some foods that can be consumed:

Liquefied soups (or without solid elements)

Soups are a good option to eat after a tooth extraction or any dental intervention. Whether it’s chicken broth (without solids) or squash, soups generally do not contain elements that can enter or irritate the affected areas. Soups should be served warm or even cold because if they are hot, they can irritate the areas of your mouth that are healing.

Broths

Like soups, broths are also good to have after your dental or orthodontic treatment. Broths are also a great way to stay hydrated, which is important for proper recovery.

Ice creams

Ice creams are also one of the foods that can be eaten after undergoing a tooth extraction or any dental/orthodontic treatment. Ice creams cold nature can help against inflammation and can also contribute to hydration. Although, keep in mind that some ice creams are high in sugars and fats, so try to consume water-based ice creams and keep track of your calorie intake.

Purees

Mashed potatoes, pumpkin, and other mashed foods are perfect after a tooth extraction or any dental or orthodontic treatment. Just avoid using sauces, gravies, or too many condiments (such as pepper) that can irritate any areas that are healing.

Puddings and jellies

Puddings and jellies are other great options that can keep you hydrated as well. The low amount of sugars they contain (if properly chosen) are a plus, along with being flavorful.

All of these are perfect foods, that can be consumed after a tooth extraction (or any kind of dental treatment!). If you notice any changes or wish to schedule an appointment with an oral health professional, call us at 623-869-1091. At Somos Dental we have a team of professionals that have plenty of experience and that can take care of all your dental needs.

Either way, you may have some questions or doubts about deep cleanings. Deep cleaning is actually a great investment in yourself and it can help your dental health. Taking care of your body so you feel good both physically and mentally is always very important.

Braces and the different methods of orthodontic treatments

ceramic-braces

If you are thinking about getting an orthodontic treatment then you came to the right place and we can definitely help you. In this short blog entry we will discuss different types of popular dental orthodontic treatments available in the orthodontic market. You will be able to compare and think about some of the different options. Also, if you want any additional information, you can always contact us at Somos Dental.

Metal (traditional) braces

Traditional metal braces are what most people think about when they hear the word “braces”. Even though modern metal braces are not as notorious as they used to be, some decades ago, they still keep the same style and working mechanism as they have always had. A big advantage to today’s metal braces is that they are not as painful as they used to be and new technology makes the total time of the treatment faster and safer than ever.

metal-breaces

Lingual Braces

These types of braces are the same as traditional braces, but the mechanism is in the inner part of the denture. Some people prefer this option since it is invisible to others. However, this does require appropriate cleaning by the user and it is more expensive than traditional braces.

lingual-breaces

Invisalign

This is a very popular new option among people seeking to get an orthodontic treatment.  Invisalign consists of a series of custom-made clear, mouth guard-like, plastic aligners. These aligners are removable and replaced every two weeks. Many look forward to this type of treatment since you don’t need to change your diet like you do for other options. Also, they are the least noticeable type of orthodontic treatment available on the market. So, if you are thinking about getting an orthodontic treatment, but you don’t like the traditional braces style or you don’t like having restrictions on what you can eat, then Invisalign is a good option for you. The only con about this option, is that since the plastic aligners need to be custom-made every couple of weeks, this makes the cost go up in comparison to other treatment options. 

invasalign

Ceramic braces

Ceramic braces work with the same mechanism as metal braces, the only big difference being that ceramic braces are tooth colored. Sometimes the wiring is tooth-colored as well which allows them to blend in with your teeth, making them less visible than most other options.
