Hello and welcome to episode number 57 of Elmar´s Tooth Talk: The missing link to total health. I’m Dr Elmar Jung.
In today’s episode I answer some of your questions that haven’t yet been a Podcast topic
We talk about:
- HOW useful are fissure sealants?
- WHY do people have trouble after cavitation surgery?
- WHAT are the options after tooth extraction?
Now before I start answering your questions are you ready for, let’s call it this week’s absurdity.
Okay, here we go.
Did you know that the Brighton and Sussex University Hospital which are part of the UK National Health Service network, they have laid out their new policy on gender inclusion language guidance in maternity.
They say it’s now time to say “chest feeding” people is the new gender inclusive term in UK hospitals.
In a recent bulletin they write for us a gender additive approach means using gender neutral language alongside the language of womanhood in order to ensure that everyone is represented and included.
Apparently, the term breastfeeding is now offensive, according to our social warlords, and it’s even more offensive to refer to a mother who’s nursing as a breastfeeding woman, because that terminology is not gender inclusive.
So, the hospitals will therefore begin referring to such people as chest, feeding people. The hospital cites precedents set by the British Medical Association, which now listen carefully. recognise recognises that a large majority of people who get pregnant and give birth are women.
Oh, really? That’s a new to me.
Okay, well, then, they go on and say, however, some may be trans men or non binary people.
Therefore, the term pregnant people is more politically correct than expectant mothers.
But I can tell you think of it, what do you want? For me, this is just nuts.
Because I mean, this is just another nail on the coffin of a normal language.
A small group of people most likely representing probably less than 0.001 percentage of population is in a way terrorising the large majority of us with their absurdities in in changing language.
Okay, but that’s enough ranting for today.
Let’s see what questions are there.
Emma wants to know if fissure sealants are healthy, or a health hazard.
Now, why do we do fissure sealants?
Fissure sealants are a measure to what people or what the science or scientists or advocates will better call them what they say is necessary to prevent tooth decay in areas where the brush can’t reach properly.
And so by placing a fissure sealants, we prevent the teeth from decaying.
Now is this really true?
If we look closely, then we know from life, nothing lasts forever. Neither does fissure sealants. So, we need to have a really close look all the time at these fissure sealants, whether they are still intact, or if they have lost the contact to the tooth. And if they do that, obviously bacteria can migrate underneath and cause havoc down there. You also need to know how fissure sealant is done.
Because it’s not just most of the time putting a kind of flowing stuff into these fissures. You first need to drill a tiny little bit or at least etch the tooth so that the enamel becomes porous and the fissure sealing material actually attaches to the tooth, which means this tooth has not or will not have the chance to go through life without any filling, because at some point, you need to either redo the fissure sealant, or if the tooth, then despite the fissure sealing the case will need a filling.
So, from my point of view, from my perspective, I would say, have a look at your oral hygiene Have a look at your diet. And that is far more a point where you can make a big difference.
Rather than using the fissure sealants on your most likely will be your children’s teeth.
Also, you need to be aware of that fissure sealants entail as one of their ingredients: fluorides.
Because that’s still the mainstream ideology that fluoride will protect you from becoming or from getting tooth decay.
What is very important obviously, is that we make sure we have as little biofilm as possible.
And there’s now a new supplement out which we will test in the next weeks and months with our patients from a company called Zinzino called Zinogene.
And that supplements supposedly is removing the biofilms from the teeth.
So we will check that if there is less plaque, especially with our patients who suffer from gum disease. So yeah, watch the space, that will be a very, very interesting topic to follow.
Then, Adriana is curious to know why some people have more trouble after cavitation surgery than others.
Yeah, we see that a lot of the time. And there are obvious reasons why that is happening.
One, that the immune system of the patient isn’t that good and hasn’t got the support with supplementation with vitamin C infusion, so that it’s actually on a level to be capable of dealing with the stresses of the surgery, and then also providing the body with the healing capacity to make that a good healing.
Another reason could be that it wasn’t cleaned out properly. And so bacteria were left there or parts of the infection part of the necrotic bone was still there. And so that then caused some more issues in the area.
And obviously, if your lifestyle, your diet, your supplementation protocol isn’t up to scratch your vitamin D levels slow or your thyroid levels low, then all these things are part of why you might not have healed properly.
not so obvious reason is healing blockages on a different level on a level that is not just physical, but maybe mental blockages emotional, spiritual, past lives, that are in the area, and blocking the proper healing the energy flow from the meridian.
And that is why we have introduced our bio photon therapy, and where the bio photon therapy, we can help the patient get rid of these blockages and we can then see much better healing off the areas.
So there are ways there are reasons why things don’t go according to plan and methods of supporting the proper healing.
Phoebe likes to know and understand the options once there is a tooth extraction.
So a tooth is missing. What can you do? What are the options?
Well, it depends really on where that to Scott missing? Is it a back tooth molar number seven, for example not necessarily do you need a replacement for that.
It also depends in how good and how many of your other teeth are still left in your mouth that you can use for chewing.
It’s also a question of your expert expectation to aesthetics. So the options you have are we start from the least invasive to the most invasive you have the denture or you have a bridge, or the implant, so a proper bridge requires teeth either side of the gap, those teeth will then be grind down and the bridge fit on those two stumps. Problem with bridges is especially in the top jaw, it stops the movement of the teeth because every tooth has their own movement they have individually, can they move around.
And so if you have a bridge there, those teeth are forced together and lose their mobility within the top jaw can also have an effect on your other bones in your skull.
An osteopath, the cranial sacral osteopath will probably be able to tell you that something has changed after you’ve got the bridge fitted, because the movement is a bit different now than it was prior to that.
But you obviously don’t want a bridge that spans across the left and right hemisphere, because that makes even more stress to your other bones in your skull.
If you have to grind teeth down, that can make them very sensitive, and in the worst case, they die.
So yeah, it’s very important that you discuss these options with your dentist that you know exactly what are the advantages and what are the disadvantages.
And the fourth options. fourth option is obviously the implants.
I was talking about implants for a long, long time in one of the previous podcasts, make sure a is a non-metal implant, make sure that your underlying health issues aren’t so that your body is unlikely to be able to cope with an implant, have the implant tested have, especially the bone tested where the implant gets in whether that bone has healed properly, whether that bone has a real good bone density, so that there is a really good likelihood that you will keep the implant for a long time that the implant will actually integrate that it will really be a good fit in the bone and the bone will encompass the implant rather than one to get rid of it.
And again, as always, it’s your diet, it’s your lifestyle.
- What do you put into your body?
- How do you help your body?
- How do you clean your body?
These are all bits of information, bits of either beneficial issues or hazards to your overall health that then can impact.
For example, if you have an implant, whether that will stay in for good or may cause trouble.
So thank you very much for your questions.
And if there are some more questions out there, which I guess they are, just drop me a line and we’ll answer them in one of the next podcasts.
That’s it for now.
Thank you very much for tuning in. And I’m looking forward to be with you next time when it’s again Elmar’s Tooth Talk – The missing link to total health.
Bye for now
