Biomineralization: The Next Step in Restorative Dentistry
An eBook from CDE World
April 28, 2017
While significant advances in resin-based sciences have occurred over a number of decades, problems with composite restorations, such as recurrent decay and fracture, have continued to materialize. Bioactive materials are those that deliver minerals beneficial to tooth structure, stimulating mineralization and formation of chemical bonds that help seal the tooth and prevent micro-leakage. Use of such materials, which are capable of apatite creation at the restorative–tooth interface, is an approach that can potentially enhance the longevity and durability of composite restorations. In dentistry’s efforts to overcome the challenges of resin-bonded adhesives, a change in methodology toward use of biomineralization may be warranted.

Bioactive Materials: Clinical Choice or Clinical Necessity?

Dental Town Magazine
August 2017

The restoration of tooth structure damaged by dental caries or trauma has been the goal of the dental profession for more than 100 years. Although there have been many solutions, there is always the desire to find a better one. The placement of direct restorations is the bread and butter of general dental practices, and these restorations can often preserve healthy tooth structure and provide immediate results for patients. However, we need to recognize that our current hybridization and restorative methods may ultimately be flawed.
