One of the most progressive fields of dentistry in the world, biomimetic dentistry involves treatment techniques designed to help you maintain healthy teeth with preventive measures to reinforce them, ultimately reducing the risk of future decay and the need for major dental work. Biomimetic literally means to copy what is natural. Biomimetic dentistry aims to copy your teeth’s natural processes using advanced technology, ultimately helping to:
- Protect against bacteria
- Reduce the risk of infection
- Prevent loss of teeth
- Reinforce the teeth so that dental work lasts longer
- Reduce the potential for decay and problems later in life that may require significant dental treatment
Utilizing conservative techniques to save as much as the original teeth as possible, biomimetic dentistry allows Dr. Joseph G. Willardsen at True Dentistry to treat decayed, fractured, and weak teeth while working to save them from new problems developing later. With treatments such as inlays and onlays, modern adhesives, and bonding techniques, tooth structure can be saved without reliance on more complex restorative dentistry treatments. Biomimetic dental techniques can result in less drilling, less need for root canal therapy, conservation of natural teeth, fewer cavities, and fewer dental treatments.
