Shark tooth filling root cervix

This acupuncture practitioner gentleman 73 years of age wanted to save his remaining dentition from extraction. So far so good as he lost only two elements the last two and a half years since starting with the HealOzone procedure. Now the molar 1.6 root cervix cavity palatine aspect had stabilised enough to have a filling placed. With no further preparation except HealOzone and redox pH balance drops the GCP “shark tooth” filling was placed in bulk squeezed into place with Kerr Adapt SuperCap Matrix high 6.3mm. Light cured for 150s. The intentional life span of the repair was determined at 20 years in concordance with the patient. The unique self healing properties of this shark tooth material will provide ion exchange with underlying dentine resulting in biofusion as long as enough enzymes are present in the tooth environment including tubules.

Glass carbomer filling, no drilling 4.7

This electrical engineer industrial production from Breda, 60 years of age came in with a cavity buccal of the molar 4.7 Previously this molar had been restored with lots of composite which now had partially broken off exposing the dentine. A Glass Carbomer filling was placed in bulk, self adhesive, after preparing with 30s HealOzone and some pH balancer drops. No drilling. This colour A2 will set in a few weeks. The GCP filling material consists of glass particles about ten micron in diameter, is mixed for 15s and is unique in its self healing property through ion exchange and biofusion with natural dentine. The prognosis for this filling is excellent. The remainder of the tooth may need some care in time to come. Contact details for professionals available on request.

Lost filling premolar 1.4 repair

This gentleman from Amsterdam 64 years of age lost a filling from his premolar 1.4 while biting an almond nut. The premolar had been repaired here with GC Equia Forte Fill the 12th February 2014 and remarkably the attachment to the old amalgam piece with which it had fallen out was still in tact! As you can see in the picture. Excellent adhesion of GC. By the way on the palatine aspect of premolar 1.5 one can see a repair; here placed the 7th July 2011 with Voco Glass Ionomer which still holds. Except the colouring and the marges leave scope for improvement. As preparation for today’s repair HealOzone was applied for twice 20s with cup round 8mm long 20mm followed with a Garrison shield F100 held in place with Garrison Wide Prep FX600 Fusion wedge. The first GCP capsule A2 was applied distally, cured for 5 times 30s and left for 5 minutes for chemical setting. Another shield was now placed mesial with the procedure repeated. After enough chemical hardening the holder ring and shield were carefully removed. Excess was removed using mainly a slow torque Garrison FPZC010-X rotating coarse flat tip. Thanks to HealOzone this Glass Carbomer repair was set in full confidence without the need for drilling. The risk for reactions is estimated as zero. This GCP filling material has rather unique self healing properties through ion exchange and biofusion with dentine. Total work time: 90 minutes including photography.

Shark tooth filling colour A2

The question of colour A2 arose of this molar 4.6 repair four months old. Should it go lighter to A1 for the next batch? Noticable are slight amalgam remains barely visible to the naked eye. Restrained amalgam removal was to prevent the tooth from desintegrating. Anyway, the GCP filling was to all satisfaction of the patient. Only the roots received HealOzone maintenance care this session.

Shark teeth root filling premolar

This retired civil engeneer from the former island of Wieringen 77 years of age requested his premolar 24 to be repaired. The element was still slightly bleeding on preparing with HealOzone. Nevertheless the Glass Carbomer repair was proceeded. Two capsules were applied. Polishing was limited for now to let the Shark teeth filling material adhere properly enough in time. The procedure was non-invasive with no drilling, self adhesive with no etching. Solo with no assistant. The prognosis is fair. In any case some defect should be easily resolved with GCP. The risk of reaction is nill. HealOzone wih Glass Carbomer makes an excellent combination in my experience.

Challenging shark teeth repairs

This building contractor calculator lady 48 years of age had defective molars 47 and 36. Today was the second attempt to get the fillings to hold without adding posts. Inflammation and infection was under control assured with another HealOzone session right before placement of the Glass Carbomer filling material. Follow up in two months. Two GCP Heat lamps for 5 times 30 seconds were applied. The 47 molar still needs to be trimmed somewhat. No painfull reactions are to be expected. The only concern is the repairs to hold. Improved double heating with the GCP lamps may have resolved this.

Bulk repair on pulpa

 

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.

Dental root infection

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Buccal root cavity repair

Molar 3.7 cavity

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.

Molar 3.7 repair
Buccal root cavity repair of 3.7 with GCP

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.

Instruments assortment

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.

Four months old GCP repair

Premolar 45 Glass Carbomer Fill A2 after four months

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.
