However, many people prefer entirely metal-free dental materials, for health or cosmetic reasons. Additionally, titanium allergies are rare, but they do occur.

Melbourne area preventive dentistry: Laser cavity detection

Dr. Terry Rose, Smile In Style

In the early stages, tooth decay is not visible. The outer most layer of a tooth is made of ultra-hard enamel and under that is the dentin. A microscopic cavity may spread slowly through the enamel layer. However, it spreads much more quickly through the dentin, the layer beneath enamel. By the time you see a small cavity on the surface, there can be significant decay hiding out of sight. It’s a little like a small rotten spot on an apple. When you cut the apple in half, the rotten area has extended to almost the whole of the apple. … Continue reading

Stabilise Dentures in our Moonee Ponds office.

Stabilise Dentures from dentist in Moonee Ponds

Most people who have worn dentures can attest to the problems with this form of tooth replacement. Designed to gain stabilization from the suction created between the appliance and the gums, dentures tend to eventually require more. Without additional support from denture adhesives, dentures may rub against the gums and cause irritation or persistent soreness. Instability in a denture appliance may lead to embarrassing situations if dentures become loose during meals. Often, a denture wearer is left to feel more comfortable leaving his or her appliance out, rather than trying to keep it comfortably in place. With dental implants, this … Continue reading

Safe Amalgam Removal Protocol

  • Chlorella drink prior is given prior to treatment and a mouth rinse post-treatment. Chlorella can help bind and prevent mercury absorption.
  • Physical protective barriers - Masks, protective coverings, eyewear, in-mouth non-latex dental dams, and other steps are taken to prevent physical contact with mercury for the patient and staff.
  • Oral evacuation - Generous amounts of water are used to continuously rinse particulate matter from the mouth while suctioning it away. Combined with protective dental dams, this prevents patients from swallowing dental amalgam particles during treatment. Additionally, the rinsing helps lower the temperature of the filling, reducing the amount of mercury vapour released.
  • External air - A continuous supply of non-contaminated air or oxygen is delivered via a mask or similar apparatus, preventing inhalation of mercury vapour or particles.
  • "Chunk it out" method - Rather than using a drill to grind the filling down, it is carefully removed in the largest possible pieces, minimising friction, vaporisation.
  • High Volume Evacuation Suction is used by the dental assistant to remove amalgam particles in the mouth.
  • High Volume Air suction and Air Purifiers are used in the clinical room that is able to remove mercury vapour from the room.
  • Amalgam separator use - This device collects mercury-contaminated waste before it can enter the sewage system, allowing us to dispose of it safely.
