De 56-jarige mevrouw wonend in Denemarken, van beroep cateraar, verzocht haar premolaar 3.4 gerepareerd te krijgen. Na genoeg Healozon de afgelopen tijd werd er een vulling aangebracht van glascarbomeer kleur A2, zogenoemde “haaientand” vulling met ondersteunende eigenschappen voor genezing. Er werd niet geboord. De levensduur werd verzocht op 40 jaar. De afbeelding met vulling is de datum 24 augustus; vier dagen na plaatsing (20 augustus) en van de afbeeldingen vooraf.
Deze dierenvriend op de leeftijd van 39 jaar afkomstig uit Drachten kwam binnen met een afgebroken kiesknobbel van molaar 2.6 mesio-palatinaal. Met een FitStrip FPSMDS 0,21 mm dik van Garrison werd er inter-approximaal ruimte gemaakt voor plaatsing van een FX175 matrix schildje. Healozon applicatie voor 70s. Met een Wide Prep FX600 van Garrison werd het schildje vastgezet. De glascarbomeer capsule met nano-glasdeeltjes werd na activering voor 15 s gemixt met bijbehorend alkylzuur en bestandelen en geplaatst in de wat vochtig gehouden omgeving. De vulling werd redelijk stevig aangedrukt en vervolgens voor vijf keer 30s met licht-warmte uitgehard. Na nog 5 minuten chemische setting werd de reparatie in model gebracht met een low torque coarse flat tip van Garrison. Realistische levensduur gesteld op minimaal tien jaar. Er werd totaal niet geboord. Conventioneel zou de hele vulling waarschijnlijk zijn vervangen met grote kans op wortelkanaalbehandeling en uitmondend in een kroon. Controle over 4 maanden. De wortelhals-caviteit blijft onder toezicht. Kans op pijnlijke reacties of kiespijn zo goed als nihil.
This is to announce that we are in the preliminary phase of incorporating a Dental School of Higher education. A founding convention is planned on the date of 14th July 2018 from 8pm onwards location to be announced. Interested parties are invited to share their views on the future of dentistry as things will develop the following 200 years. These views, opinions and professional expertise will be incorporated in a Mission statement, after examining social proof and market desires, wants and needs. The Mission statement and vision document will be incorporated in the Foundation to be formally set up later this year. We are noting that present day dentistry is excellent in all kinds of repairs, restorations and prosthetics. However, essentially drilling away affected cariës tissue instead of curing it, can be considered in principle as a rather crude violation of the integrity of the patients body and dentition. Modern day root canal treatments are so dangerous in its consequences that in my humble opinion this approach should be phased out, if not soon at least later. Composite fillings should be screened not to have Bisphenol, HEMA and that kind of hormone disruptors as a present day generation is suffering with endocrine disfunctioning due to these procedures. Just a few examples. Working together with present day established universities, great and they will all get invited. Same as the ministry of OCW, inspection of education, dentists unions and advisors. Please email us if you have a professional interest to participate and you are likely to get an invitation. We are considering to convene on a small Island in the south of Friesland. Problem is to get there on foot you need to walk through 70cm of water for 900m or come by boat. This slight hindrance is built in to make sure everybody is sincere and qualified. It should be fun with great food as well such as rump steaks from authentic grazing cows and excellent drinks like craft beers with moderate alcohol. On request locally distilled whiskey from Frisian Horse. A special website is in the making but I did not want to let you wait. Possible founding members may come from anywhere in the world. Students of the school will go on international excursions anyway. Have a lot of fun in Friesland, Holland and you may prolong your stay.
P.S. This initiative has been screened and accorded with two professional advisors to underline the gravity of the intention. It may seem outrageous but is absolutely serious.
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.
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.

Molars 4.6 and 4.7 before and after repair with Glass Carbomer A2
Materials used. Opened GCP capsules for demo.
This courageous lady 72 years of age requested repair of her defective molars. A challenging proposition. Having lately gained some confidence with the GCP Glass Carbomer fillings I offered to try. Both elements 46 and 47 were suitably prepared with Healozone. The 46 remained somewhat mobile and on the 47 the Healozone instrument drew some blood which worried me but I proceeded with the repairs anyway. To get around the 4.6 an Odus crown form diameter 12mm was applied with two capsules Glass carbomer A2 mixed for 15s each. Cured for 5 times 30s with GCP light. Subsequently the 4.7 was modelled with Garrison matrix bands with 3DXR ring and filled with GCP Fill. Finished with GCP gloss two times and light cured two times 30seconds. After another 5 minutes for additional chemical self cure excess material was removed and some modeling was done by cutting back, although deliberatly minimally. The lady will be back in a fortnight and the molars will be checked anyway.
No etching and no bonding was used as instructed. No conditioner. This dental practice is rather unique in its combination of Healozone and GCP as we do not do any dental drilling at all in bodily dental tissues! This is our unique selling proposition USP. (Although I may drill out old amalgam.) It saves having to get rid of a smear layer caused by drilling with conditioner. In my humble opinion, pure preparation with Healozone with no drilling will enhance the proteïn adhesion of the Glass Carbomer material. It may require cavities to be left open for a while in order to heal, supported with special nutritional advice and after care.
This GCP filling material is unique that it will self bond through proteïn adhesion with natural dentine forming into biofusion with formation of pseudo dentine / enamel. The repairs have self healing properties, amazing as it sounds. The patient asked how this could be assured which I presume can only be checked after she passes away. We will see if the repairs hold. If not, we’ll try again. Root infection is ruled out anyway.
The chemical engineers of GCP set out to develop and produce a biocompatibel material (inspired by fossile shark teeth from the Myoceen) based on hydroxy apatite, fluor apatite and siliciumdioxide to be mixed with alkyl acid and the like into a flowable paste which will set in a little over a minute to be cured with a special heat lamp for proper adhesion. Although most suitable for the posteriors I prefer the material so much now that in some cases I place it in the incisors as well.
To the benefit of our international contacts, this study case in the English language. From what I hear the NHS in the UK has included GCP for reimbursement. The GCP company has stated their goal of 50 percent use of their products by dentists within three years time. This may seem overly ambitious. However, in combination with HealOzone this product line may revolutionize dentistry eventually worldwide. Endodontic treatments will be reduced by at least 80 per cent and that is a very conservative estimate.
Shareholders of GCP will have to stand strong in their shoes not to be swallowed up by some large buy out offer which may be tempting. To reach their ambitions they may need venture capital but smart marketing may be even more essential.
