Bone Density Clinical Results
How the Measurement is Taken
The following clinical results are typical of patients taking SAC calcium daily. The results show the significant improvement in a relatively short time period. It is measured with FDA approved Omnipath Axial Transmission Ultrasound Technology by Beammed. Omnipath™ is a unique, patented, proprietary axial transmission technology based on the measurement of the speed of ultrasonic waves propagating along the bone.
How to Read Graphs
Blue dot represents initial bone mineral density measurement (BMD).
Red dot is the last measurement.
-1.0 or higher indicates that BMD is Normal (green)
Between -1.0 and -2.5 indicates Osteopenia (yellow).
-2.5 or lower indicates Osteoporosis (red).
0 means your BMD is equal to the norm for a healthy young adult.
SAC Rebuilds Jaw Bones
When an adult tooth is removed and not replaced, jawbone deterioration may occur. Natural teeth are embedded in the jawbone, and stimulate the jawbone through activities such as chewing and biting. When teeth are missing, the alveolar bone, or the portion of the jawbone that anchors the teeth in the mouth, no longer receives the necessary stimulation, and begins to break down, or resorb. The body no longer uses or “needs” the jawbone, so it deteriorates and goes away.
The rate the bone deteriorates, as well as the amount of bone loss that occurs, varies greatly among individuals. However, most lost occurs within the first eighteen months following the extraction, and continues throughout life.
X-ray A and B shows bone loss around extracted tooth. With SAC treatment for 10 months, 60-year-old male shows rapid building up of jaw bone even where a tooth is extracted.
Periodontal diseases are ongoing infections of the gums that gradually destroy the support of your natural teeth. Periodontal disease affects one or more of the periodontal tissues: alveolar bone, periodontal ligament, cementum, or gingiva. While there are many diseases which affect the tooth-supporting structures, plaque-induced inflammatory lesions make up the majority of periodontal issues, and are divided into two categories: gingivitis and periodontitis. While gingivitis, the less serious of the diseases, may never progress into periodontitis, it always precedes periodontitis.
Periodontitis is affected by bacteria that adhere to the tooth’s surface, along with an overly aggressive immune response to these bacteria. If gingivitis progresses into periodontitis, the supporting gum tissue and bone that holds teeth in place deteriorates. The progressive loss of this bone, the alveolar, can lead to loosening and subsequent loss of teeth.
X-ray C shows the teeth of 45-year-old male with jaw bone loss around his teeth. With SAC treatment, we observe rapid build up of jaw bone supporting teeth.
Osteonecrosis is a condition that occurs when there is loss of blood to the bone. Because bone is living tissue that requires blood, an interruption to the blood supply causes bone to die. If not stopped, this process eventually causes the bone to collapse. Osteonecrosis most commonly occurs in the hip. Other common sites are the shoulder, knees, shoulder, and ankles.
X-Ray D shows the leg of 10 year-old girl with an onset of bone necrosis. With SAC treatment, necrosis disappeared to her doctor’s dismay, and she is healthy today. Click on the x-ray to see more pictures.
