Minimally Invasive Dentistry that Seals and Preserves Healthy Teeth
Biomimetic dentistry treats weak, fractured, and decayed teeth in a way that keeps them strong and seals them from bacterial invasion. Careful sealing against infection removes the need for 60% to 90% of the crowns and root canals of traditional dentistry!
What’s Different about Biomimetic Dentistry?
Instead of simply filling cavities as though they were potholes, biomimetic dentistry keeps the patient’s long-term dental health in focus. By using advanced adhesive techniques and properly fashioned onlays, dentists can make sure that dental work will fail in a repairable way before your teeth suffer any biological failure. By sealing the tooth against infection, biomimetic dentists make sure they don’t make dental problems any more serious than they already are.
What is Wrong with Traditional Dentistry?
Traditional dentistry techniques don’t take advantage of the advanced ceramics and adhesives developed by modern engineering. These new technologies allow dentists to use small onlays that work more like your own teeth than the large porcelain crowns used in traditional dentistry. Old techniques can cause your teeth to eventually crack and leak, allowing bacteria to rot your teeth away from the inside. Biomimetic dentistry locks out the bacteria, for safer, more durable dental work.
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.
