Dental Revision Protocol
Dr. Gallo utilizes removal protocols based on recommendations of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT), Dr. Hal Huggins, and other prominent holistic dental organizations.
Procedures Dr. Gallo Follows in Full Dental Revision:
- Rubber Dam - This is a thin sheet of rubber that isolates the tooth/teeth being worked on and helps prevent particles and bacteria from entering the soft tissue of the mouth.
- Negative Ion Generators - When removing amalgam fillings, the vapor from the fillings releases into the air. The negative ion generators help to capture the mercury in a filter thus reducing exposure to patient, dentist, and assistant.
- Sequential Removal of Fillings - Measuring the electrical current using a Rita Meter and removing the most negative current fillings first, allowing a set of 4 healing endocrine glands to be stimulated therefore promoting healing.
- Immune Compatible Filling Materials - A serum compatibility test of your blood to be tested against most dental materials in use today. Only those materials that report minimal challenge to your immune system will be selected.
- Oxygen for the Patient to Breathe - To greater eliminate the possibility of breathing in mercury vapor.
- IV Vitamin C - Provided for protection against fumes and vapors that can be absorbed or inhaled as fillings are removed. IV Vitamin C is especially necessary during oral surgery. Bacteria and toxins release into your blood stream during oral surgery and the vitamin C can aid in neutralizing their damaging properties.
- Conscious Sedation - This is an intravenous procedure that puts you in the twilight zone. This allows all work to be able to be completed in one appointment to the delight of your immune system.
- Massage - Generally applied a day or two before revision. The purpose is to stimulate release of ionic calcium needed for healing after surgery. Massage also helps to stimulate your white blood cells, which are needed after a dental revision.
- Acupressure - Immediately after dental revision, acupressure has the ability of reintroducing your nervous system to your muscular system. The normal impulses that connect these parts of your anatomy get “scrambled” during dental procedures. This procedure has also shown to alleviate pain therefore very little pain medication may be necessary.
