What Is Bio-Emulative Dentistry?

An intact tooth is the perfect synthesis of beauty and strength. Its parts, enamel, and dentin, individually weak, join as a unit to produce an engineering miracle of strength.

From a philosophical standpoint, modern bio-emulative dentistry adopts the integrity of the residual healthy tooth structure as a core value. This contrasts with traditional dentistry’s core values, which highlight the integrity of the dental restoration instead.

The result of such a radically different approach is apparent in the failure mode between the two: friendly and repairable in bio-emulative dentistry and catastrophic and necessitating repeat or additional dental treatment in traditional dentistry.

Traditional dental restoration often “sets up” the tooth to continue losing strength and integrity. They emphasize the actual restoration instead of preserving as much natural structure as possible.

A pre-requisite of bio-emulative dentistry is the preservation of tooth vitality and the long-term maintenance of natural structure. That is why the goal of bio-emulative dentistry is no root canals or crowns. Central to this approach to dentistry is the in-depth knowledge gained through the study and practice of both periodontics and implant dentistry.

Both fields rely on a “marriage” of natural biology and man-made materials. It creates results that integrate restorations to support natural appearance and function. This opposes many traditional treatment approaches, integrating biology to support the restoration.
