Introduction to Biomimetic Dentistry
Biomimetic Dentistry is dentistry which “mimics” nature. In other words, it is dentistry which restores teeth to as close as they were naturally. Biomimetic dentistry restores a tooth conservatively with materials and techniques that mimic what nature intended, avoiding root canal and loss of teeth issues.
We Don’t Grind Down the Tooth
- We have the training, the technology, the materials and most importantly the commitment to save tooth structure and stop the dental cycle: after removing all diseased and broken tooth structure.
- We save good healthy teeth — we don’t grind down the tooth.
- With a restoration design based on sound engineering principles to absorb and distribute stress through the tooth as in nature. With the least possible treatment to save tooth structure…more of the tooth is left intact.
- While rebuilding the tooth strong — building the tooth up, not grinding it down — to prevent future breakage.
- With Biomimetic dentistry the goal is to eliminate the use of crowns or caps.
The foundation is critical. antibacterial, priming, bonding, layering techniques are utilized to create a protective barrier over the cialis online rx exposed dentin. This shields the tooth from bacterial infection ; it also adheres to the tooth with previously unachievable bond strength with documented reliability. Polymerization stresses (shrinkage) are minimized by selecting proper materials and strictly adhering viagra online generic to proven protocols. This creates a precision tooth-restoration system that is designed to mimic nature, so that it flexes with the tooth in function, not so strong as to break the tooth, just as strong as the tooth. It is kind of like rebuilding the tooth to “factory specs.” This is biomimetic dentistry.
The top of the tooth is restored back to proper function and can be repaired in minutes if damaged. Options are variable. This is not a critical part of the whole restoration. Gold, porcelain or the newest of natural materials — biomaterials, a tooth colored composite hybrid material that mimics natural enamel. This bio-option allows the tooth to be restored in one appointment. What is fundamentally critical is a secure bond to the tooth structure under the top restoration –the biobase. If the top is damaged, the biobase stays healthy, intact and uninfected.
