Nothing is stronger than bonds. Literally, when you view things on a subatomic particle level, structures are all composed of bonds. The stronger those bonds are, the stronger the overall structure becomes. When you think about it, this can be said about many things. Take bridges for instance; if they bonds between the parts that hold a bridge together aren’t sound, then the whole structure is made weak.
Our mouths, composed of teeth (and sometimes bridge work as well!) are another place where bonds are important. Sometimes the natural bonds that exist aren’t strong enough and we need some help.
This is where synthetic resins come in; they are a mixture of certain ingredients (such as ceramic/plastic compounds, silver, etc.) used to help strengthen teeth that have been made weak by cavities or other issues. An engineer from the University of Missouri has developed a new flowable and injectable composite that is being touted as revolutionary. The composite is made up of calcium phosphate nanofibers that are able to increase the strength, durability and overall appearance wherever they are used.
As newer techniques and technologies make their way into the dental industry, the future of dental health becomes that much brighter, like a freshly cleaned set of teeth after visiting your local Ottawa dental professional.
