A new way of fixing tooth decay with Bioclear
Traditionally, you have tooth decay, and the dentist drills a hole in your tooth to clean it out before packing it up with a silver or tooth-coloured filling. Done deal. But what happens overtime? Chewing food, clenching, and grinding put the tooth under so much stress that either the tooth cracks or the filling fails. Why? Because the tooth-filling interface is a tension joint.
With Bioclear, not only are we following the latest guidelines in removing minimal decay (selective caries removal technique), we also bio-engineer the tooth preparation (the shape of the filling) to strengthen the tooth and maximize the awesome properties of composite resin. Bioclear places the tooth into compression—making it 8X more resistant to stress fractures!
Bioclear—different bio-engineering principles
Strengthening teeth : dental caps place teeth in compression by sacrificing up to 70% of the tooth volume. Bioclear puts teeth in compression by enhancing the way we carve the tooth prior to filling it. The result is 8X more resistance to fracture overtime.
Less possible complications: by performing selective caries removal, we remove only what is necessary for the tooth to maintain its optimal health. We don’t chase the caries down to the nerve anymore and risk needing a root canal.
