About The Discovery Of Revolutionary Dental Fillings?
Hello … I want to ask, yesterday I read about the latest findings from dentistry about the revolutionary patch, what is a revolutionary patch ?? when can be in dental clinics in Indonesia ?? Can large dental cavities be patched by this method? Thank you
Hello Silvia, Thank you for the question.
Dental fillings are an act of filling cavities with a filling material. Dental patching is a common procedure. Patching materials available today also vary, such as amalgam, composite resin, ionomer resin, porcelain, and gold alloy. Each of these fillings has advantages and disadvantages of each. The revolutionary dental fillings you are referring to are still in the research stage. Researchers are finding new fillings that can fill cavities that are hollow and contain bioactive glass. These patches are claimed to release phosphorus, potassium and fluorine compounds so that they can help repair damaged tooth tissue. This is different from the fillings available today which only serve to fill cavities in the teeth. Because this material is still in the research stage, this patch is not yet available on the market. Abroad alone, this material has not been marketed. If it is further proven that this material does have the uses mentioned above and is safe to use for sufferers of cavities, then this material can be marketed immediately.
If you have a cavity complaint, always consult with your dentist so that the doctor can examine your teeth and suggest patches that are suitable for your condition.
You are also advised to follow the following recommendations to prevent cavities:
brush your teeth regularly twice a day with toothpaste containing fluoride
limit consumption of sweet and sour foods and drinks
consume fibrous foods and high calcium foods such as nuts and cheese
consume water that contains fluoride
Hopefully this information helps.
