All over the world every year dentists treat thousands of dental patients and fill millions of cavities that has been decayed. Filling the cavities helps in protecting the inner pulpy material from getting damaged.
Only 10% cases fails for which dentist do root canal treatment and removes all the infected areas or tissues from the mouth. For all this hassle, there is a research being done at the University of Nottingham and Harvard University who are trying to make something which will help the dentist in curing this problem in a better way. They have developed a biomaterial after a long term research that helps in regenerating the damaged pulp. This biomaterial helps in creating a new layer for protecting the inner pulp.
In the field of dental this is a breaking news for all the dentists and patients for which DR Adam Celiz has explained that when a patient faces a dent pulp disease root canal is mostly used to removed the infected tissue. We have developed a synthetic biomaterial that can also be used for the same purpose which the filling but the important thing is it can be while direct contact with the pulpy tissues. It stimulates the population of stem cells for repairing and regenerating of tissues in the pulp along with the dental surrounding.
As most of the people would be familiar that teeth is made up of different layers. The outer most layer is hard which is called as enamel, inner part is made up of soft tissue that have blood vessels and nerves. tooth decaying starts when bacteria ho inside the tooth by breaking the enamel and reveals the dentin which causes severe infection in pulp.
For curing this problem, synthetic biomaterial may be help in stimulation of cells and encouraging them to grow again to form new dentin which will protect the soft pulp inside. Dr kyle said that he is very excited about the promise of therapeutic biomaterials who will bring regenerative medicine for the restorative dentistry.
