Dental Treatment

The health of your client’s teeth can give good indications of what minerals are required. Unless you are a Dentist, or specialising in helping the detoxification process when people have their amalgams removed. you probably are not going to know exactly what is happening inside your client’s mouth. However, most clients at some point in time will give you details about what is happening with their teeth, particularly if they are getting major dental work. You will also get clues by taking facial photos, and asking them to show their teeth.

A word of caution

These days there are a lot of treatments that people can have to their teeth. These range from whitening to caps, and other services which will change the natural character of the teeth, giving a nicer whiter smile. Asking questions, or commenting on lovely teeth can allow your client to give you more information about their teeth, so that you can find out more about the state of their teeth before the dental work. For example, questions or comments like

  • “What lovely white teeth you have”, can lead to “They used to be really yellow”, or have “lots of white marks on them before I had treatment…”
  • “Aren’t your teeth lovely and straight” may lead to “Oh yes I had braces”, “a plate” or “I had lots of cavities…” , “an accident which knocked out my teeth…and I have false teeth now”

Children are often easier than adults to get a clear indication from their teeth.

Client History

Your clients will usually give you information about their teeth, either in their initial history, or at some point when they are having issues with their teeth. At some point some clients may even ask if you know a good dentist for getting amalgams removed. (Keep a reference of good specialists in your area, who you know personally or who clients recommend.)

Use your Additional Study Notes and Information manual p7 to help you prescribe when there is a history of dental issues.

Always look to the history, signs and symptoms for the cause of the problem.

Preventative care

With any dental issues, pain in teeth, please refer your client to their dentist. Regular visits to the dentist, a diet low in sugar, and regular teeth brushing are the best preventatives for healthy teeth and gums.

If visits to the dentist cause stress or anxiety, 5 x Mag Phos given half an hour before the visit can help to relax the patient so they are less stressed, less tense, for the appointment. Mag phos will help the patient to relax making it easier for the work to be done.

If there is excessive fear of the dentist, 5 x Kali Phos may also be given.

Treatments

We have talked about a lot of treatments for teeth when we looked at Calc Fluor, Calc Phos, and Silica. Review those classes regarding teeth.

Tooth decay – dental caries

Tooth decay occurs when acids, produced by the bacteria found in dental plaque, softening the hard tooth enamel. The process of decay sets in, and can penetrate deep into the teeth.

Small children – 1 x Calc Fluor daily

Older children 2 x Calc Fluor daily

Continue to take these daily over several months.

Toothache

Toothache requires investigation by a dentist as there are many possible causes.

  • Nerve inflammation
  • Dental fistula – a tube like passage in the tooths root leading from a cavity
  • Dental abscess
  • Gum disease
  • And more

Gunther Heepen has some good recommendations when you can get to a dentist quickly, for example if you are travelling, or toothache happens on a weekend.

  • Inflammation of the lining of the mouth – Ferrum Phos
  • Gums that bleed easily – Kali Phos
  • Toothace occurs at regular intervals and improves with warmth: Mag phos “Hot 7” several times per day
  • Increased flow of saliva – Nat Chlor
  • If rheumatoid Illnesses occur at the same time – Calc Sulph.

Dental Fistula

Silica – assists the drawing out of pus or infectious material from the fistula

Nat Phos – assists with the acid balance in the mouth, and infection

Calc Sulph – assists with chronic infection and to close off the area after any infectious material is removed by the Silica

Calc Flour – assists with tooth construction

Tartar (calculus)

Tartar is a form of hardened dental plaque. It is caused when bacteria cause minerals to come out of solution from saliva, hardening in plaque on the teeth. Tartar forms above and below the gum line. Its rough and porous and can lead to receding gums and gum disease. (http://www.webmd.com/oral-health/guide/tartar-dental-calculus-overview#1)

Kali Phos – helps remove the decaying matter

Nat Chlor –

Nat Phos –

Periodontitis

The bacteria in tartar irritate and damage the gums. Pockets form between the gums and teeth and get infected by bacteria. This is called periodontitis. Your immune system sends chemicals to fight back. The resulting stew can damage bones and tissues that hold your teeth in place.

Calc Fluor – assists in rebuilding the enamel

Kali Phos – helps the body remove the decaying matter causing the periodontitis

Amalgam problems

Amalgam removal is a specialised treatment by trained dentists. However, clients are often concerned about leaking of amalgam.

To support professional treatment Nat Sulph and Nat Chlor may also be used.

Nat Sulph is the main treatment to remove toxins. However, Nat Chlor is used to support the removal of heavy metals from the tissues, whilst Nat Sulph assists excretion of heavy metals out of the body.

Children’s Teeth

Teething

Fever often occurs when teeth are trying to erupt. You may see one red cheek.

Ferrum Phos

When teeth are cutting,

Calc Phos – 1 tablet dissolved in water to form a paste and brushed onto the baby’s dummy, or on the gum. Apply 3-6 times daily

Delayed teething

When teething is delayed in young or older children getting their adult teeth I have also used Calc Phos, and often seen the teeth start erupting in the next few weeks.

You can also use

Calc Fluor

Silica

Cramps during teething

Mag Phos

As you can see, taking the time to understand what the problem is makes it much easier to work out which mineral to prescribe and why.

Steps for Building your Business

How to choose what to offer your clients – The Magic Wand

There is a fabulous process that I learnt which makes it much easier to work out what to offer your clients.

Remember the most important thing is “What does your Client want?” When you get that right, your offer becomes a “no-brainer” to them.

The Magic Wand process work out What your client wants and then how to give it to them.

There are a few simple parts. Your research last week will help you answer Questions 1 and 2, so you can summarize your answers from there, and then we will add the Magic Wand Process at question 3.

  1. Who are your customers?

Use last week’s research to describe who your customers are, their age, demographics, where they are located, or any other attributes you have gathered about them.

  1. What are their needs, wants, fears and frustrations? (From your research, last week)
  1. If you were a customer and had a magic wand, what would you create to address (Question2) their needs, wants fears and frustrations?

This is a very important stage. Answer this from the perspective of your customer. To help do this, think of someone who is in this target group. What are the things that they would really want to have?

At this stage, do not reject anything. Do not answer from your point of view, or whether you can provide it. Instead, think creatively, from your customer’s perspective, no matter how outrageous the answers seem.

  1. As the seller, what are you willing to deliver?

Now you look at what are you willing to deliver. If your client would like you there coaching everyday, you are not going to provide that. However, you may be able to give them an experience as if you were there every day, via video exercises, or emails that encourage them. By treating with Tissue Salts between treatments. Or something else.

  1. How will you deliver it?

Get creative and work out how you can provide what they want, that uses your time and resources effectively.

Exercise 1 – How to decide what to offer your clients

Using the information from last week’s “who are your clients?” Exercise answer your Magic Wand Questions

  1. Who are your customers?
  1. What are their needs, wants, fears and frustrations?
  1. If you were a customer and had a magic wand, what would you create to address (Question2) their needs, wants fears and frustrations
  1. As the seller, what are you willing to deliver?
  1. How will you deliver it?

When you have got that worked out, you are ready for the next step.

Next week

We explore another Niche, and next steps in building your business, putting together your offer.

 

See you soon.
