Biomimetic dentistry, a type of tooth conserving dentistry,
treats weak, fractured, and decayed teeth
in a way that keeps them strong
and seals them from bacterial invasion.
Biomimetic means to copy or mimic nature. Instead of simply filling cavities as though they were potholes
Biomimetic dentistry we try to eliminate cutting teeth down for crowns and destructive root canal treatment. Now our patients are Now it is possible to rebuild teeth with materials that simulate natural teeth much more closely, and hold up better to constant chewing.
We have studied the dental scientific literature and have taken advanced training in Biomimetic dentistry We have found that less dentistry is the best dentistry
I believe that biomimetic dentistry is the best way to keep your teeth strong and to prevent root canals and crowns.
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.
The Dental Cycle
Much of the time and money spent doing dentistry is re-doing dentistry.
Fillings leak around the edges. Teeth break around large fillings. White fillings can shrink resulting in failure. Metal and porcelain crowns concentrate force at the edges and break the teeth and/or cause leakage.
This can result in root canal treatment or loss of teeth.
All of this results in tooth problems, tooth infection, tooth loss.
Biomimetic Dentistry Stops This Dental Cycle!
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.
How We Stop the Dental Cycle
We use surgical magnification optics (electronic vision)
We are a specially-trained in biomimetic dentistry
We take the time necessary to remove the leaking old filling
To conserve healthy tooth structure:
• Lasers to treat cavities
• CEREC to restore larger cavities or broken teeth
• Ozone to disinfect•
