And just what, pray tell, is biomimetic dentistry? It’s the most sensible approach we know for restoring damaged or diseased teeth.
Conventional dentistry focuses mainly on aesthetics – how the teeth look – and basic function. Biomimetic dentistry takes it a step further. We’re also concerned about the biomechanics of the teeth being restored.
When biomechanics are ignored, the result is often a process of continually restoring the same teeth until the tooth finally dies, leading to a referral for root canal therapy in hope of “saving” it.
We want to return teeth to their original look, strength, and function – without sacrificing so much natural tooth structure. “Biomimetic” literally means copying life.
As a holistic dentist, Dr. Mamak Saffarpour knows that teeth are far more than just tools for biting or the stuff of a beautiful smile. Your teeth are living sensory organs. Here in our comfortable, welcoming office in south San Jose, we respect that deeply.
We think it’s a healthier way to do dentistry.
