Periodontitis - Net Health Book. Regenerative Fillings Heal Teeth from the Inside. Scientists in the UK have developed a new material that can be inserted into teeth to repair and regenerate dentin - the hard, bone-like tissue that makes up the bulk of all teeth.

Regenerative Fillings Heal Teeth from the Inside

Just like regular fillings, which are inserted into a tooth to block off spaces where bacteria could colonise, the new material is injected into the tooth and hardened with UV light. But once inside the pulp of the tooth, it actually encourages stem cells to proliferate and grow into dentin. "We have designed synthetic biomaterials that can be used similarly to dental fillings but can be placed in direct contact with pulp tissue to stimulate the native stem cell population for repair and regeneration of pulp tissue and the surrounding dentin," says lead researcher Adam Celiz, a therapeutic biomaterials researcher from the University of Nottingham.

Communicating Shade to Labs

That was pretty dumb. Unfortunately (or fortunately) our teeth are not identical to the VITA shade guide tabs. There is far more complexity that exists in our dentin and enamel, so if we are to hope to acheive a higer level of replication we must put in some more effort than just writing a letter and a number on a lab script. The good news is that you don’t need a masters degree in the fine arts to be able to take a good shade.

amalgam

Dental amalgam is the most widely used material to fill cavities in decayed teeth, technically known as caries. It has been used for 150 years; only gold has been used longer. Amalgam is composed of approximately equal parts of liquid mercury and alloy powder containing silver, tin, copper, and sometimes lesser amounts of zinc, palladium or indium. Despite amalgam's long history of use, some scientists and consumers are concerned that the mercury from amalgam restorations might be harmful. Nearly half of 1,000 adult Americans surveyed by the American Dental Association in 1991 said they believed amalgam could cause health problems.

Because each of us possesses unique chemical sensitivities, these substances effect each of us differently and in varying degrees. For some, the effects of certain substances (and their corrosion byproducts) can be toxic and hazardous, and may result in serious health problems. A substance which causes little or no reaction in one individual can prove harmful to another. Since these effects may vary in each of us, it is vital that these material sensitivities be considered when choosing dental and other materials for use in the body, especially in patients with rare or unique health concerns.

Clifford Materials Reactivity Testing (CMRT) provides dentists and physicians with extensive information about their patient’s individual sensitivities so that least offensive materials can be chosen and used in their treatments.

Sorrentino | 1 Comment » As I believe an educated consumer makes the best choices, I want to review the current choices available in filling materials for you. Many people either have dental insurance and go to a participating dentist who takes their plan without any thought as to what he is using or pay directly and will choose based solely on the fee charged, also while giving little thought to what material is used.
