Russian researchers have developed a way to restore tooth enamel with artificially-created biomimetic materials to prevent tooth decay in its early stages. And, they’ve accomplished this thanks to a discovery that an increase in the concentration of organic substances in saliva indicates cavity development. Initially, the researchers found that the saliva of people with cavities…

In the past, bonding agents have ignored biomimetics for the sake of creating a strong bond. Traditionally, one of the biggest challenges with bonding in the past was not having proper isolation. In order to create a successful bond, the treatment required extreme isolation with a rubber dam or an isolation system. There are many…

Extracting teeth without thinking twice is not the way to deal with dental distress.

Fillings could soon be a thing of the past as a new study reveals an Alzheimer’s drug can enhance the tooth’s natural ability to repair itself. The treatment works by using a drug called Tideglusib to encourage the tooth’s own cells to rebuild and repair cavities that extend from the surface to the root. This…

  Members of our growing biomimetic dentistry community are committed to minimally invasive dentistry and techniques that preserve as much as the natural tooth as possible. One of the  most commonly used techniques that adheres to our standard of dentistry is called Air Abrasion. Air abrasion is a drill-free technique that removes small areas of…
