Bioactive Dental Materials
- by Kelowna Dentist Dr. Klara Burlacu
Bioactive dental materials are used in conservative dentistry for their capacity to regenerate, repair and reconstruct bone and dental tissue. These materials are antibacterial, anti-fungal, non-carcinogenic and non-toxic. They have conductive and inductive properties with effect on growth factors and other cells, and they have the ability to create a biological response in the living tissue stimulating repair and healing.
Today our office is using a variety of these materials (Biodentine, MTA, calcium hydroxide, and Admira composite restoration material to name a few). The bioactive, biocompatible and regenerative qualities of these dental materials help us to provide a more conservative and holistic treatment for our patients.
