What is Biomimetic Dentistry?
Tooth Preservation With No Pain is at the Heart of Biomimetic Dentistry
A general dentist spends his or her day drilling and filling teeth. When a cavity is found, this dentist will bring out the drill to remove the decayed tooth material, and fill that cavity with other material -- sometimes with gold, porcelain, a composite resin, or an amalgam alloy of up to 50% mercury and a mix of other metals.
A systemic and biomimetic dentist like Dr. Panahpour practices dentistry in a very different way. When a cavity is found, Dr. Panahpour's first question is "what caused this cavity?" and he often finds solutions that may help the patient prevent cavities in the future.
Instead of using a drill, Dr. Panahpour will often use Ozone to clean out and kill all bad bacterial found in a tooth with decay. Ozone is non-invasive and painless.
Using nontoxic biomimetic materials that copy the look, feel and strength of the human tooth, Dr. Panahpour uses non-invasive techniques and materials to help each patient keep their teeth, keep them strong and seal them from bacterial invasion.
Biomimetic Dentistry has practically eliminated cutting teeth down for crowns and destructive root canal treatment.
