We know that fillings are ideal for repairing chips and small cavities. They are often made from decay-resistant materials like porcelain, composite resin, and, on occasion, amalgam. However, as time goes by, the pervasive bacteria in a patient’s mouth can slowly start to weaken the bond between the filling and the surrounding tooth enamel. This is…

Well, that’s a wrap! The 2019 Annual Academy of Biomimetic Dentistry Conference was a huge success. Dentists and vendors from across the country met for two exciting days in Dallas. The conference, held April 12-13, was filled with dynamic lectures and Q-and-A session, as well as engaging conversations about new techniques and concepts in the…

Stem cell research is charting new territory in the treatment for healing damaged teeth. Scientists from the University of Nottingham and Harvard University’s Wyss Institute believe their new treatment strategy may one day replace root canals. Regenerative Treatment Strategy When dental pulp disease and injury happen, a root canal is typically performed to remove the…

The Academy of Biomimetic Dentistry is pleased to announce a series of hand-on course programs offered by Dr. Simone Deliperi. Why should you get these courses on your calendar? Because over the years, Dr Deliperi has worked with the most important researchers and clinicians in the field of biomimetic dentistry. Dr. Deliperi has played a…

Dear Colleagues, Unlike our colleagues, plastic surgeons and bariatric surgeons, there are no shows singing the praises of the Biomimetic dentist toiling in their operatory creating beautiful composite restorations.  We desire to achieve the “perfect” tooth, but, alas, are we ever satisfied. As a young dentist, I had no such problems since the only materials…

A type of glass ceramics has been developed by researchers at Sweden’s Uppsala University. According to the head of the research team, the special ceramics benefit the patients because they mean three times stronger teeth and not having to visit the dentist as often. Ceramics are non-metallic and inorganic materials that include glass. The Uses…

  A new breakthrough in root canal treatment comes from the University of Alabama. Researchers have developed a reliable, biodegradable gel filling that promotes healing and regeneration. The filling, say scientists, releases nitric oxide and antibiotics inside the treated tooth, boosting the potential for tooth regeneration. Gel Instead of Blood Clots As we know, when…

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…

Diamonds may shine bright and sparkle, but have you considered putting that bling in your mouth? UCLA scientists have — and they’ve come up with something truly fascinating. A report from the American Chemistry Social journal Nano demonstrates that nanodiamonds — which are microscopic diamond chips — have the capacity to improve root canals by…
