Translated literally, the word “biomimetic” means to mimic life. Biomimetic applications in dentistry aim to conserve natural teeth whenever possible. Fractured, weak, and decayed teeth are treated to maintain strength and resist bacteria. This dental approach has reduced the need to file down teeth for root canals and crowns. A biomimetic approach to implant dentistry utilizes biocompatible materials like titanium to better promote osseointegration between the bone and the implant. Different physicochemical characteristics of the implant surface can affect osseointegration and typically, the surface of the implant will be sandblasted or acid-etched to encourage successful implantation. With a biomimetic approach, however, designed peptides and extracellular matrix components may be used as a way to modify the implant surface. Biomimetic dental implants are continually being developed and tested as new ways to achieve osseointegration. Additionally, bone grafting procedures in biomimetic dentistry are cutting edge, using multi-material 3D printing for the scaffold design.
