At Monarch Dental Arts, Dr. Anna Paholiouk is proud to be a biomimetic dentist in Orange County, and serves patients with the very best dental care. But we understand that the term “biomimetic dentistry” can be a bit confusing, especially for patients who have only seen traditional dentists.
So what is it? What does biomimetic dentistry involve? And is it a legitimate approach to dental care? Find out everything you need to know in this blog from our team, and see why biomimetic dentistry from Dr. Paholiouk is the best choice for you.
“Biomimetic” is a term that means “to imitate the natural properties of something.” In dentistry, this means that a dentist will focus on preserving as much of your natural tooth structure as possible when rebuilding a damaged tooth.
Think of it this way. If you break your leg, a doctor will not recommend that you cut off your leg and replace it with an artificial leg. Instead, your doctor will provide the minimally-invasive treatment your leg needs to heal and get back to its natural function, like setting the bone and then placing a cast on your leg to protect it as it heals.
In the same way, a biomimetic dentist like Dr. Anna will always look for the least invasive way to repair a damaged tooth. Rather than removing lots of natural tooth structure to repair a decayed tooth, for example, Dr. Anna will use advanced materials and techniques to protect your enamel and rebuild your tooth.
Protecting and preserving your teeth is the primary focus of biomimetic dentistry. And compared to traditional standards of care, biomimetic dentistry is superior for preserving your tooth structure and overall oral health.
Now that we’ve broken down the basics of a biomimetic approach to dentistry, let’s get into the details. Why should you choose biomimetic dentistry in Orange County, rather than seeing a traditional dentist?
