Self Healing Teeth – Is It Possible?
Is Possible to get Self Healing Teeth You might be said ‘What!?’ after you read the title. I was said it’s impossible! Well, close to impossible till I found myself through some research on the internet, it happened! Let’s talk about it. In the dentistry world, a filling is one of the most common procedures but the Anaesthetic injections followed by drill sound always been a big worry for patients. Would be great if there’s any treatment without drill and anaesthetic. This is the reason for this finding.
What actually happened in dental caries or cavities?
The process involved in dental caries called demineralization. This process makes tooth weaker and porous since bacteria produce acid that pulls out the minerals from your tooth. When you not caught it early and get a filling, it results in dental caries and this cavity gets bigger by time. Unfortunately, it’s not really good news at all after filling. The bad news after the filling is the process will continue into a cycle. Repaired and replaced for the rest of the tooth’s life until it gets endodontic treatment and so on.
So, we need a reverse process!
It called by remineralization where minerals which present in saliva and some foods enter the tooth enamel to make it stronger and denser. The natural process of remineralization looks at times, thus Reminova’s prototype device speeds up this process to the same amount of time it would take to have filling. Others advantage are painless, no injection and no drilling. It’s good news for patients, especially children. Yes! This product’s main market will be children and teenagers though adults and the elderly can also have this kind of treatment.
The new technology developed by British scientists based in the Scottish city of Perth, Reminova say their patented technology named EAER (Electrically Assisted Enhanced Remineralization). The mineral ions are pushed by the electrical field to the deepest parts of the lesson creating the right conditions for the minerals to precipitate and become part of the solid enamel structure, and causing the lesion to fill from the deepest part upwards. EAER will be marketed in 3 years.
Its amazed how dental technology develop, isn’t it? Maybe in future, there will be the same technology as this to healing gingival recession. Self Healing Gingival Recession.
