Ten Key Questions to Ask Your Dentist

By Gerald Regni, DMD on April 10, 2013

03Before Getting Dental Work Done

  1. Does the Dentist use a digital dental X-ray system? (Digital X-ray produces 90% less radiation than old analog X-ray machine
  2. Does the Dentist use Septocaine as the anesthetic? (Lidocane and Carbocaine are extremely toxic (carcinogenetic) and block lymphs in the retomolar areas [where the injection is given] and can compound infection in other teeth areas.)
  3. Does the Dentist use proper protocol when removing silver amalgam fillings?
  4. Does the Dentist use and exhaust system, place near the mouth while removing silver amalgam fillings? (If an adequate exhaust system, is not used, significant amounts of vaporized mercury ions can be absorbed into the sinuses, brain ECT. – which can create distressing symptoms)
  5. Proper Neutaceuticals pre and post op for pathways of body to be balanced while removing toxic substances in the mouth also to balance the body, creating a homeostasis to improve overall health
  6. Does the Dentist use dye-staining (which later rinses away) to identify infection in the teeth? (Typical dental X-rays are notoriously inaccurate in terms of showing dental decay – being accurate only about 30% of the time, regardless if digital or old analog X-rays are used. Dye-staining the teeth help show decay that X-rays routinely miss.)
  7. Does the Dentist use a dental laser to disinfect a newly drilled tooth and or ozone? (A Dental laser is approximately 99.9% disinfective. If a dental laser is not used, typical disinfection using hydrogen peroxide is only about 30% effective – meaning that some infection will often remain.)
  8. Dose the Dentist use low-fusing ceramics or ceramic/hybrids to replace fillings? (The LFCs [low-fusing ceramics] are a special, truly biocompatible, nontoxic dental restorative material which has a built-in shock-absorbing capacity to prevent cracking under maximum biting pressure. Especially avoid metal fillings crowns, ECT.)
  9. Does the Dentist use laser to permantly bond a new inlay or crown? (If the dental restoration is not bonded by laser, the typical dental cements that are used will commonly wash out from underneath the crown or filling within about 5years – eliciting slow decay underneath the crown or filling and more loss of the tooth. Laser bonding is permanent and will not do this
  10. Does the Dentist use a method to determine bio-compatibility of materials chosen to be used in your mouth?
