Dental treatment is an essential part of healthcare in Sunbury

We take our health seriously in Sunbury, Moonee Ponds, and other suburbs across Melbourne. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, over 80 percent of adults and teens over the age of 15 see a general practitioner at least once annually. Of course, that does not mean eight out of ten people are ill. More likely, it is a sign that we understand the value of preventive treatment. Unfortunately, for the same age group, that number drops below 50 percent for dental visits.

Your smile needs a doctor too

The benefits of preventive dental treatment include:

  • Early disease diagnosis, which can be life-saving in the case of oral cancer
  • Professional teeth cleaning removes tartar in hard-to-brush places before decay and gum disease develops
  • Periodontal health assessment can detect gum disease in the early stages when it is reversible
  • Have the opportunity to ask questions and get advice about oral care products, nutrition, flossing techniques, and more
  • Avoid the pain and expense of tooth decay and periodontal disease

Your body needs a healthy mouth

As a holistic dentist, Dr. Rose and his team of dentists focus on whole health and wellness. The goal of holistic medicine is not to treat diseases, but to achieve wellness. Filling a cavity is treating a symptom. Restoring oral health requires also addressing the underlying problems that caused the cavity.
The benefits of dental care extend far beyond your teeth and gums. Research has linked oral disease with chronic systemic inflammation, as well as the spread of bacteria in your system. Many chronic health problems, such as diabetes, have a two-way relationship with gum disease. That means, treating and controlling either condition may improve the other. Similarly, neglecting either condition can exacerbate the other.

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.
