Dental Breakthroughs On The Horizon

dental breakthroughs Timonium

At Dr. Steven W. Haywood, we use the latest dental technology to provide our patients with quality general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry. In addition, we keep tabs on the latest dental research propelling the industry forward.

Here are some of the newest intriguing dental technologies:

Fill and Heal: Bioactive Glass
A new type of filling created from ‘bioactive glass’ extends the life of fillings by inhibiting secondary decay and replacing lost minerals.

“Bioactive glass, which is a type of crushed glass that is able to interact with the body, has been used in some types of bone healing for decades. This type of glass is only beginning to see use in dentistry, and our research shows it may be very promising for tooth fillings.”1 Jamie Kruzic, professor of advanced structural and biomaterials at the Oregon State University College of Engineering

Stem Cells
A research team from the University of Nottingham and Harvard University applies stem cell technology to dentistry. They’re developing stem-cell based biomaterials that regenerate tooth dentin.2 The goal is to use them in fillings and root canals to save and regenerate tooth structure.  Although it’s still in its early stages, this technology could one day help preserve millions of smiles for people worldwide.

3D Printing
Some dental offices already use 3D printing to construct aligners, retainers, drilling guides for implant placement, and extremely accurate models for restorations. As the printers become faster and less expensive, you will be seeing them in more Maryland  dental offices.

Technology has its place, but experience, expertise, and a warm and attentive chair-side manner are just as essential. The quality team at Dr. Steven W. Haywood invites you to enjoy the difference at our comfortable dental office. Call today to make an appointment.
