MURPHY DENTAL CENTERS BIOMIMETIC APPROACH

TOOTH PRESERVATION AND DENTAL CONSERVATION

Tooth preservation and dental conservation lie at the heart of biomimetic dentistry

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. Here at Murphy Dental Center, Biomimetic Dentistry has practically eliminated cutting teeth down for crowns and destructive root canal treatment. Patients are happier and often spend less compared to conventional treatment.

MODERN ADHESIVES AND BONDING TECHNIQUE

THE DRIVING FORCE OF BIOMIMETIC DENTISTRY.

With traditional dentistry we had to destroy healthy tooth structure in order to accommodate a new restoration. In other words, we had to destroy in order to create. Now we are able to bond or glue teeth back together and even add missing parts of the tooth reliably without removing volumes of precious tooth structure. It has the added value of sealing the tooth from bacterial infection. This has mostly eliminated the need for painful and destructive crowns and root canal treatment with its associated pins, posts, slots, grooves and other non-adhesive retention features.

Many competing synthetic dental materials are stronger, stiffer and seemingly more beautiful, however, their use often leads to undesirable results–even catastrophic failures. Dentistry has had structural failures and problems related to the over-engineering of materials, mostly because we did not have the knowledge or the technology to imitate natural teeth. Now it is possible to rebuild teeth with materials that simulate natural teeth much more closely, and hold up better to constant chewing.
