The Basics of Biologic Dentistry
Watch this instructional video by Dr. Matt Nejad to get an understanding of what biomimetic or biologic dentistry is.
Anyone who has had an invasive oral procedure done knows how stressful conventional dentistry can be. The thought of root canals, crowns, and drills can scare patients away.
However, a more natural precautionary method known as biomimetic dentistry is becoming more and more popular. But have you ever heard about it and how it’s gaining traction these days? The primary goal of this approach is to maintain the tooth’s natural structure and correct problems to avoid having to undergo reconstruction surgery.
A fractured tooth that’s beginning to decay is vulnerable to more severe issues such as cavities or infections. With biomimetic, you can address the problem right away and strengthen the target tooth to protect it from further bacterial damage.
Using biomimetic dentistry as an alternative to oral health care can substantially lower the need to extract teeth, perform root canal operations, or grind them down for other procedures.
Preventative care not only keeps your natural tooth structure intact but also maintains your overall oral health. It also eliminates the need for time-consuming, costly, and painful dental procedures.
With this approach, it follows the less is more principle. Unless it’s vital, dental issues are solved using a non-toxic and less invasive treatment rather than extracting or grinding teeth.
