I would like to use an ultrasonic toothbrush for 20 minutes, twice a day, to restore lost jawbone and even possibly regenerate lost teeth, since I have lost most of my upper teeth. This type of device generates 1.5 MHz ultrasonic waves at around 0.3 mW, and some of the devices are pulsed. They are said to have a maximum transmission into the bone of around 12 mm. I would be using the device in this way on a daily basis for several years.
Since I am also myopic and have had retinal detachment
surgery repaired by cryopexy about 10 years ago, I am concerned that daily application of ultrasound
might destabilize or tear the retina, or detach the scar that holds (or held) the retina of the right eye to the choroid, triggering another retinal issue.
I have a different question regarding enzymes, specifically, serrapeptase and papain. Due to other health issues, like membranous nephropathy, I have contemplated taking serrapeptase to digest autoimmune complexes in the kidney basement membrane. Serrapeptase digests `dead` scar tissue, therefore would it compromise my retinal repair which was done by cryopexy? Similarly, if I took papain for the same purpose, i.e., to digest autoimmune complexes, would that be a concern for my retinas? - since papain even digests living retinal tissue in the lab.
