Post root canal treatment and Glass Carbomer repair
This lady, building contractor calculator, 48 years of age came in with a failed filling of molar 3.6 buccal after a conventional root canal treatment. HealOzone reduced the amount of bleeding to practically zero. A Glass Carbomer A2 capsule was mixed and placed directly on the pulpa, gently modelled and cured with GCP heat lamp for 5 times 30s. A further build up of the element may be considered at a later date. However the bonding of the glass ionomer material onto the dentine is of primary concern. No reactions are to be expected. Removal of excess material was left to a later date.
Root infection molar 1.6
Unbearable tooth ache during 72 hours, in spite of all sorts of self medication brought this gentleman from Gouda 50 years of age into the practice. His whole dentition was done with HealOzone this visit, the 1.6 and 1.7 molars more thoroughly. Provided the necesarry precautions are taken the outlook is favourable for a complete recovery. The gentleman opted for amalgam replacement. However, working in a diseased tooth is never a good idea, for opening up the molar would produce a bloody and painfull situation. Relieve with this ozone procedure should be fairly immediate. While the after care measures are well enough applied and understood, amalgam replacement may be appropriate after the third HealOzone session. To be performed without anesthesia. Conventionally this case would have led to a root canal treatment which the patient sought to avoid at all cost. He is to be congratulated on his determination and courage. The hardest thing is to get the patient to adhere to the after care protocol strictly enough. Seems hard to believe that balancing carbohydrates on the one hand to minerals, proteins and aminogroups with plenty of oxygen and nitrogen on the other hand will relief the root condition.
This gentleman 46 years of age, teacher with a university degree in physics, eventually wants this cavity repaired which is not healing by itself. After the second try you can see the result below.
Purely preparing with HealOzone for twice 20s one Glass Carbomer capsule was mixed and placed in bulk. After GCP gloss the material was held in place with a ToDent Cervical Matrix for Class V repairs with GCP heat lamp on top for four times 30s. Removal of excess material and polishing was left to be done for another time.
The ToDent Cervical Matrix shield with holder and curing lamp on top is of particular interest as Class V repairs can be challenging. In particular with vegetarians. The gentleman was advised to soak the tooth properly in good animal protein such as from minced beef twice a day for the repair to hold and for better luck this time. Nitrogen groups are quite essential to transport and inbed minerals and to let the Glass Carbomer Fill take on Shark teeth properties. Just like in Chemistry where ammonia is being used to produce all sorts of things.
This lady born and raised in the province of Utrecht region it Gooi, professional church organ and flute player, 65 years of age, was finishing her three year dental maintenance program this session. The 45 premolar had Glass Carbomer Fill, colour A2, placed at the date of October 17th, 2016. The repair is distally bordering the 46 with onlay. There is scope for improvement but to the naked eye it looks quite natural. There were no complaints.
Below you can see the molar 47 with a cavity distally with stable underlying dentine and no complaints, which is left unrepaired for the time being. Filling is possible but this would yield limited merit. The old amalgam is left in place as well not to take the risk of desintegrating the tooth. The lady does not want to be treated by conventional dentistry anymore and she can reshedule in six months and probably have a prolonged three year dental maintenance plan.
Molar 2.8 cavity and GCP repair
This lively lady from the coastal region of Holland 69 years of age came in with a cavity mesial of molar 28. A piece of dentine had fallen out. Esthetically challenging to work against gravity this far back maxillary. After due preparation with HealOzone, Glass Carbomer Fill was placed in bulk using a Garrison matrix shield with Soft Face 3D-Ring 3D500 to get a fitting interapproximal space. As usual no drilling at all. This GCP shark teeth filling material will bind itself into the dentine through biofusion according to the supplier and as such should last for a generation. The repair goes with one year repair warranty in spite of the lady being vegetarian. Lack of proper animal protein was a prime factor of developing this lesion in my humble opinion. This procedure will save the lady a conventional root canal treatment or extraction. A root canal treatment would have limited chance of succes anyway (eventually) given the difficulty of this remote location. Not to speak of the costs involved and the risks of toxicity of a root canal treated tooth. Reference: The Roots of Disease – Connecting Dentistry & Medicine by Robert Kulacz DDS and Tomas E.

Partial extracted molar 47 buccal view
This antroposophical therapist from Amsterdam, 57 years of age, was hanging on to her molar 47 which had fractured all the way into the root and as such was beyond repair. A partial extraction was suggested which was carried out with the following result.
Extracted molar part
Noticable are traces of a previous root canal treatment. The remaining part of the tooth was a bit unstable and in spite of a worrysome outlook a provisional repair was carried out on the same day of the extraction. This should give the molar still quite a number of years. With all the risks of infection under control thanks to HealOzone and Glass Carbomer a responsible therapeutic trial.
Provisional Glass Carbomer filling molar 47
The shark teeth filling material with glass particles of 10 micron in diameter was handpressed in place and cured for 5 times 30s with GCP heat lamp. To keep morale on high ground an after care guarantee was rendered valid for one year. Not a Hollywood tooth but the only other option would have been total extraction. Experimental category.
Cavity molar 2.6
This teenager 16 years of age would not let himself be treated by conventional dentistry, in particular by tooth drilling. Nor was dietary advise sufficiently kept up to avoid this cavity from deteriorating. There were no further complaints with regard to aches or pains. No sensitivity at all to cold water stream. After preparation with HealOzone for 60s with cup size diameter 8mm long 20mm a Glascarbomer Filling A2 was placed in bulk with the following result. (Double pictures for semi stereoscopic view.)
Molar 2.6 Glass Carbomer filling A2
GCP surface gloss was applied in three stages with an increasing but reasonable pressure on the filling material. The GCP heat lamp cure was held for 6 times 30s on top. After five more minutes of chemical setting the Garrison matrix shield and tension ring holder were removed. Some excess material was removed. Polishing was purposely delayed.
This repair is an interesting challenge for all the supposedly superior qualities of this innovative product combination with regard to biological ingrowth of the repair material with underlying dentine with its self repair attributes. Seconcary caries and inflammation risks are confidentially reduced to practically zero and theoretically speaking the repair should hold for at least a life time. I told the patient some what jokingly that the shark teeth filling should still be in its place when digging him up twenty years after burial.
By the way I wish to comment on a TV broadcast dated 16 december 2016 EditieNL stating that children often go to the dentist when it is too late. You may copy and paste this link. http://www.rtlnieuws.nl/editienl/laatste-videos-editienl/zes-maanden-oud-naar-tandarts-kinderen-gaan-te-laat-naar-de
There is however very little or no attention for the nutritionally related factors at the university dental schools in this country, according to the TVitem.
Conventional dentistry for children of up to 18years of age is reimbursed thanks to a motion of Fleur Agema from the PVV based on a system of restrictive “prestatie codes.” Easy political score but rather detrimental to childrens dental health. Nutritional factors and life style issues cannot be declared and are therefore willfully ignored. A cruel system leading to a lost generation of youths particularly in certain cultures. While the public is enthusiastically reading writers like Weston Price, Ramiel Nagel and George Meinig (Root canal cover-up) the dental profession at large and universities remain ignorant on the subject which they discard as too controversial. Understandably, dentists get paid by following codes. As long as legalities are followed, eventual end results are not cashed in. What I am trying to say is that innovative procedures should not be so harshly discouraged.
