Biomimetic Dentistry

Dr. Erpenbach Promotes Healthy Mouths and Smiles with Biomimetic Dentistry

As a tooth conserving philosophy, biomimetic dentistry seeks to treat fractured, weak, and decayed teeth in a manner that strengthens the teeth and protects against bacterial infection. Traditional dentistry can destroy healthy tooth structure as part of the restoration process. With biomimetic dentistry, however, Dr. Erpenbach can rebuild your teeth by using components of your natural tooth structure as part of the restoration process.

Biomimetic dentistry also advocates a more moderate approach to treatment, focusing on the idea of “less is more.” Ozone treatment, good hygiene, and properly placed sealants can practically eliminate the occurrence of issues like gum disease or tooth decay. Where cavities develop or old fillings exist, Dr. Erpenbach will address these needs with the most conservative therapies available.

Dr. Erpenbach believes that biomimetic dentistry provides patients with superior dental care. The benefits of biomimetic dentistry include:

  • Eliminating the need for root canal therapy
  • Imitating nature by replacing teeth in layers
  • Significantly reducing tooth sensitivity after dental work
  • Saving time with completion of dental work in one office visit
  • Preserving more of your original tooth
