I’m 68 and simply had EMFACE. I’ve two gold crowns facet by facet within the left decrease again of my enamel. 20 minutes after the process, my left higher brow eye space, left facet of my head above my ear and a bit to the again left facet of my head, had some stabbing pains. Nonetheless there in the present day (24 hours later) however not as painful. The tech put “bubblegum” on my caps to cowl the steel. Would not make me wish to proceed. Is that this process secure with the gold steel crowns?
Thanks for writing as a result of it spurred me to jot down a brand new put up on the way to strategy problems from procedures. To not point out those I additionally had not too long ago from the ellacor® Micro-Coring™ process. 🙁 The pictures are on Instagram at dr brandith_skin.
Did they speak in confidence to you that Emface has a short lived impact with an preliminary collection after which long run upkeep wanted? Did the “tech”, or hopefully an RN, setting you up for the process perceive that you’ve got gold and never porcelain crowns?
Any time there’s a “grounding pad” and Emface has one, the radiofrequency (RF) is being transmitted between your face (or no matter therapy space) and that grounding pad. Because the power passes by the steel, it heats it up. The ache you have been experiencing was nerve ache because the gold crown heated up an excessive amount of. The opposite drawback with this…is that the warmth can soften the glue used to safe the crown, after which the crown might turn into unstable! I’d vote “No” on this process for anybody with steel within the crowns or steel in your jaw, until you get the okay out of your dentist. Please be sure that your dentist actually understands that the RF is heating up the steel crown. Many dentists don’t have time (understandably) to observe this expertise.
