As a practicing biomimetic dentist, and a member of the Academy of Biomimetic Dentistry, I strive to preserve as much of a tooth’s natural structure as possible. I make every effort to prevent future, and expensive, dental repairs. I also make sure that I’ll never leave my patients at greater risk for a tooth breakdown or infection down the road.
The biomimetic dental treatments — also referred to as minimally invasive — I use at my practice mimic natural teeth as much as possible. Any patient who is on the fence about having a dental restoration procedure done can take comfort in knowing that the biomimetic dentistry options available are safe, effective, and reliable.
The following are 5 reasons why minimally invasive restorations are your best choice for dental care.
1. NATURE SERVES AS OUR GUIDE
This type of approach to dentistry looks to nature to copy what it has produced. It looks to restore what was naturally strong and bring it right back to its original properties.
2. INSIDE OUT APPROACH
Biomimetic dentistry approaches your teeth from the inside out. This approach protects your existing teeth against bacteria and sealing against infection.
3. WE DON’T REPLACE, WE REPAIR
Biomimetic dentistry seeks to repair what you currently have rather than removing more of your natural tooth to install replacement components. A repair, such as bonding, is not always an option, but if it is, it is the preferred method.
4. IT’S COST-EFFECTIVE
Minimally invasive restorations are more cost-effective than traditional restorations. They require fewer repairs over their lifetime. This saves you extra dental visits to dental offices.
5. LONG-LASTING SUCCESS
Due to the fact that biomimetic-repaired teeth almost never need a root canal or traditional crown, they have high long-term success rates. While you maintain more of your natural tooth structure, your tooth remains healthier for longer.
