Health Funds and Offshore Dental Implants
Offshore dental implants and the new medical tourism health fund scheme will create health risks
Why Offshore Dental Implants and the New Medical Tourism Health Fund Scheme is Doomed to Fail
NIB and other health fund giants who are introducing new legislature and taking responsibility for overseas dental health cover are risking huge bungles due to dangerous dental treatments being performed overseas.
Bio-chemist nutritionist Simone Sleep has revealed that there are certain mainstream dental practises routinely performed overseas which can wreak havoc with health.
Under the changes many cosmetic dental procedures performed overseas will now be covered by some Australian private health funds.
“It’s a huge risk to send largely uninformed Australians as they will be jetting off to countries to perform operations which are risky and need to be fully understood,” said Mrs Sleep.
“My biggest concern is dental implants because of the bacteria that can be harboured in the tissue surrounding the implant and neighbouring teeth,” she said.
“Bacterial can spread like wild fire and creates more sites of infection down the track.”
“In Australia it costs $1700 to $2700 for a dental implant, but it can cost half the price in Thailand.”
“In the short-term Australians will save money on these procedures but it’s also opening up a lot of potential problems down the track.”
“Putting metallic implants in bone can create an autoimmune response. The only difference is the time it takes.”
“The mentality that now we can go overseas and get this done cheaper is frankly dangerous.”
“Leukemia, cancer, heart disease, and diabetes are just some of the diseases that have been associated with the bacterium discovered hidden within infected gums and non-vital teeth.”
“I certainly wouldn’t be going to see an overseas conventional dentist and getting implants done.”
“Blood tests also showed statistically significant shifts related to implants and other immune challenges after being removed.”
Ms Sleep said before booking an overseas dental implant treatment, the following questions should be asked:
· What is the health risk associated to dental implants? More than a dozen different anaerobic bacteria were detected in both bone grafts and metallic implants. This silent incubator for highly toxic anaerobic bacteria that can, under certain conditions, make their way into your bloodstream to cause a number of serious medical conditions—many not appearing until decades later.
· How safe are dental implants? Once an implant is performed the body has a normal reaction to a foreign object placed in the bone which it wants to automatically reject. The body recognises it as a non-living bone. It’s called autoimmune response. Over time quality of life can be diminished.
· Why are implants hard to remove? The body will form a shield around the implant to limit the amount of toxins being thrust upon its blood stream. This hard bone was thought to be representing implant success. It is in fact a sort of symbiotic blending of artificial with natural bone and possibly an extension of the concept of placing cadaver bone into bony defects in the jaw. DNA testing will verify the bone structure around the implant.
· What disease conditions are associated with implants? Strep constellatus – mycodardial abcess and severe brain swelling, Veillonella parvula – infection in sinuses heart bone and central nervous system, Cemella morbillorum – meningitis and the list goes on.
“The dental profession should work in conjunction with the toxicology and biochemistry professions in re-evaluating the use of metallic implants and dead bone,” said Ms Sleep.
“Science is constantly changing and improving and Australia has an advanced dentistry practise, it’s hard to know what is going on is largely unmonitored countries.”
Ms Simone Sleep runs Nutrition and Dental Information Sessions on the Gold Coast to help people understand the ins and outs of medical tourism.
The next workshop will be held on Thursday, April 27th 2014 at the Wyndham Building Bundall. For more information on the session, and what you need to know about good dental health, visit www.instituteofdiabetes.com.au.
About Simone Sleep
Simone is a qualified and registered naturopath for over 16 years, who has studied internationally to further her understanding in biochemistry nutrition, pathology and dental toxicology. This has enabled her to create unique health programs with extensive blood chemistries that are not common knowledge in Australia. The drive to work in this field was after she was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 28 years old and having to undergo 4 months of dental correction work, that is removing a root canal, rotten tooth and a mouth full of silver fillings. Today she is 41 years old and has overcome her health challenges.
