Biomimetic Dentistry has been gaining popularity over the last 15 years. Doing dentistry the traditional way of mechanical retention is being replaced by doing advanced adhesion techniques. There have been great advances in the research and understanding, adhesive materials, and especially techniques. The techniques combine new materials and newly understood information. Collectively the science, principles and techniques of advanced adhesive dentistry is known as Biomimetic Dentistry. Interpreting it literally, biomimetic dentistry, means to “mimic nature”.
The benefits of biomimetic dentistry are huge! The need for extension and mechanical retention is virtually eliminated.
