Biomimetic Dentistry

Today, holistic health has become increasingly embraced by the public, and as a result, dental treatments are taking a more patient-centered approach with the use of procedures that are less invasive than those used in the past. This kind of treatment is known as biomimetic dentistry, and Dr. Woods has integrated it into her dental treatments, both from a holistic, and cosmetic perspective. 

Biomimetic dentistry tries to avoid loss of tooth tissues and root canal by treating the teeth in a conservative way and using adhesive materials. says that biomimetic practice dictates that dentists recreate layers of natural teeth instead of removing the damaged or decayed tooth.  Therefore, the tooth is restored as much as possible to its natural state.

How Biomimetic Dentistry Prevents Root Canal Treatment

If the cavity on your tooth is incredibly vast, biomimetic dentistry can help you solve the issue. Biomimetics involves learning the function and structure of biological systems. Therefore, biomimetic dentistry involves copying the function and aesthetics of a natural tooth to replicate the materials used to replace the affected tooth.

A root canal treatment involves removing the affected pulp. Thorough cleaning of the interior is done, and a disinfectant is applied. Gutta-percha, a material made of rubber, is used to fill the tooth, and a crown is placed on it to seal the restoration. During the biomimetic procedure, Dr. Woods skillfully cleans the tooth after removing the decay up to the nerve then seals it in a painless manner.

The biomimetic process differs from a conventional root canal in that the dentist does not destroy the nerve but leaves the tooth alive unlike in traditional dentistry where the nerve is killed. This stops blood supply, thereby making a crown a necessity.

Well, patients might think that leaving some amount of decay would be dangerous. However, this is not true because sealing off the decay from the nerve prevents the supply of blood, meaning no more bacteria can survive in it.


Why is Biomimetic the Ideal Alternative?

The reason why biomimetic is the friendliest for the restoration of your teeth is that it seeks to restore the natural state of the teeth and avoids crushing it down. It uses new techniques that are pocket-friendly and patient-oriented. It leaves the teeth working well as it looks and functions like natural teeth.
