Why is biomimetic dentistry better than conventional dentistry?
The protocols used for restoring teeth reduce the chance of a tooth dying off after treatment (and requiring root canal treatment). It also means we can save more teeth that would have conventionally been extracted. Using ‘caries detector’ allows us to remove just the right amount of decay to prevent nerve damage and seal the base of the tooth to prevent further decay. Ultimately, we can preserve more of the tooth and adhesive techniques can enable us to rebuild the tooth with less damage than conventional crowning would do.
