Dr. Haji Continues His Commitment to Lifelong Learning

This week I have been away from the office to complete a course presented by the world renowned Dr Dider Dietschi from Geneva Switzerland. The title of the course was “Excellence and Innovations in Composites: Direct Anterior Techniques and the “No-Prep” Ultra-Conservative Treatment of Tooth Wear”

Dr Dietschi is an advocate of conservative treatments for extensive and complex dental problems like tooth wear. The knowledge and skills that he has shared will enhance my ability to provide complete dental care with primary concentrations in dental occlusion, the temporomandibular joints and comprehensive esthetic restorative dentistry.

This was a wonderful journey in which I was able to meet and learn from a true master, who  is a meticulous dentist and great teacher. I made new friends from around the world including Denmark, Kuwait, Lithuania as well as other fellow Canadians. It was such a joy to meet like- minded dentists who are committed to providing their patients with the very best in dental care!

Cavities Underneath Old Fillings

This picture shows an old tooth coloured filling with a very small crack in the filling. The crack is enough to allow bacteria to enter the tooth and cause decay.

The filling is removed to get access to the decay. The decay is evident by the brown discolouration. The yellow tooth colour represents healthy dentin.

The decay has been removed. The picture shows healthy dentin free of bacteria.

A new filling has been placed which is nicely sealed and integrated to the surrounding enamel. Notice the natural contours and tooth anatomy which allow cleaning with floss and proper function with the opposing tooth.
