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.
