I don't remember much of this when I first qualified. I saw a lot of neglect and caries, but this has been a recent observation as you can buy litres of carbonated drinks and fresh orange now that is more affordable than when I was growing up.
I'm sure when John Gummer famously made his daughter a beef burger, no one commented on the more obvious problems of the drink with a happy meal.
Well I'm sure the food lobbyists will cave in and the intake of sugar laden acidic drinks will be banned.
This was the immediate outcome, and at the age of fourteen, I think its a good result. I will never know how long it lasts.
My observation is I rarely see this sudden erosion in adults. I think after about 10 years of fluoride toothpaste the mature enamel surface, it is less likely to erode?
This is a video I made explaining the procedure. I made a few unusual restorations. I always ensured that if there was a failure, the original alternatives were not lost. There is nothing better in the mouth than the teeth we are born with. It is surprising how long these restorations last in the correct caring environment.
After a while, when using an ultrasonic scaler, my mind drifts off. Sometimes I even wonder what I am doing, and why? In March 2016 Mrs Collins isolated premolar supporting her CoCr -/p was M2 and bleeding. Desperate measures were required, so I sent her a YouTube video form the excellent group Perio Courses. In July 2020 she still has no bleeding, no mobility, and a lower denture she likes-even more unusual. She was the tipping point for my teeth4life APP.
