Dental Revision - More than White Fillings

Dental revision is a multi-step process including assessement, treatment planning, treatments and follow-up. Basically it involves a complete evaluation of your oral status, medical history and present and past symptomatology using a range of diagnostic tools as well as a detailed clinical examination.

The purpose of this evaluation is to determine oral factors who may have a detrimental impact on your oral and general health. Factors such as heavy metal toxicity, microbial toxicity, galvanism, infections, ischaemia and their oral causes are diagnosed if present. The sources of these factors such as amalgam fillings, gum disease, metallic alloys, bone infections ect... are explained and discussed. Usually this process takes approximately 2 hours.

Once the evaluation is completed, a tailored treatment plan is designed, presented and discussed with you for your approval. Documentation is provided as part of the informed consent process.

When a decision is made on the final treatment plans, most patients will need to take basic nutrients to prepare their body for treatment. This is because most people with long term exposure to various oral toxicants need additional nutrients to assist their body in dealing with the toxicants already impregnated into the body. In most case it is necessary to start the nutriceutical program 7 to 10 days prior to the first dental treatment and continue until dental revision is completed. In patients with a history of chronic ill health this preparation will usually take longer ( a few months rather than a few weeks ). The nutriceutical program is tailored to suit the needs of each individual. This preparation is very important, especially in patients with a history of chronic ill health.

Treatments are done sequentially according to exacting protocols developed over many years by renowned clinicians and scientists all over the world. The sequence is determined according to individual characteristics and the length of each treatment appointment usually varies between 1 to 3 hours and the total sequence of treatments can vary from a few days to a few months. Specialized equipment is used and Dr. Jacques Imbeau has extensive experience in dental revision both in New Zealand and overseas, collaborating with other experts in this field.

A post-dental revision detoxication program is necessary. We also provide advice on this matter and work in collaboration with qualified health practitioners with expertise in such programs.

Most patients who need a dental revision already have ongoing chronic health problems and we do our best to help them regain their health in spite of the damage suffered by their body. However, it is regrettable that it is usually when someone has lost his or her health that they see the need for remedial action since it would be much easier to address the problem before the body becomes dysfunctional.
