What is Biomimetic Dentistry?

Put simply, biomimetic means to simulate what is life-like. Dr. Taglia and other biomimetic dentists believe that your natural teeth already provide the ideal properties to keep your mouth and body healthy. So, when Dr. Taglia restores decaying and broken teeth, he aims to return the tooth to its original look, function, and strength with a conservative approach.

Dr. Tagila's Conservative, Effective Approach 

Biomimetic Dentistry with Dr. Louis Taglia Jr. offers a conservative, effective approach to long-lasting dentistry where he removes only the damage and decay, leaving your healthy and natural tooth structure intact. The final restoration is bonded to your natural tooth structure (often referred to as an inlay or onlay), and there's no removal of healthy tooth structures to fit a crown, resulting in a strong, natural, and lasting restoration. Dr. Taglia's technique supports a natural approach and a firm understanding of advanced adhesive methods.  This is essentially what separates biomimetic dentistry from traditional dentistry. Biomimetic dentistry is:
  • An investment in your oral health that lasts a lifetime
  • Focused on saving and naturally restoring healthy teeth
  • Providing a long lasting natural solution vs. a quick fix 
  • Minimally invasive and effective

    Biomimetic Dentistry vs. Traditional Dentistry

    Dr. Taglia Jr. believes in biomimetic dentistry because it focuses on doing what his patients need, in a natural conservative way, first and foremost. Traditional dentistry often goes the easiest route and can destroy your healthy tooth structure in the process. In addition, traditional dentistry's quick-fix approach fails to compete with the proven alternatives available with biomimetic dentistry. Dr. Taglia's conservative approach provides lasting, top-quality solutions to the most complex dental issues. Biomimetic dentistry will:
  • Improve your oral and overall health
  • Save money over time by avoiding unnecessary procedures
  • Preserve your healthy tooth structure
  • Experience less discomfort during appointments
  • Avoid harmful materials in your mouth
  • Show off more natural-looking restorations
  • Have shorter healing times and faster recovery
  • If you have questions about biomimetic dentistry, dental implants, or veneers, we have answers! Give us a call at (312) 529-8850 if you'd like to request a consultation to discuss your dental needs.

    Holistic dental care

    Biomimetic dentistry understands that oral health impacts your overall well-being. That's why Dr. Taglia practices a holistic approach to dentistry, working to save as much of your healthy, natural tooth structure as possible. When restoring damaged and failing teeth, he uses natural materials designed to simulate biological function, maintaining healthy relationships between the mechanisms in the mouth. By nature, holistic dentistry is conservative and more effective than traditional dentistry at providing lasting solutions.

    The Biomimetic Investment

    Some believe biomimetic dentistry is too expensive and that maintaining strong, healthy, natural teeth isn't worth the investment. Unfortunately, they learn later that traditional dental work that requires chipping and filling can cause long-lasting damage and be more expensive and painful later in life. Biomimetic dentistry is more costly because it rejects quick fixes and focuses on maintaining the strength of your natural teeth for a lifetime.

    Prevent Root Canals with Biomimetic Dentistry

    With Biomimetic dentistry, most root canals can be avoided entirely.
    By limiting the removal of healthy tooth structure, Biomimetic Dentistry significantly reduces the necessity for root canal treatments. In fact, Biomimetic Dentists report over 90% reduction in the number of root canals their patients receive.
