Dental Materials

Dental Materials

Dental materials are an essential aspect in the practice of dentistry. They are used for diagnosis, restoration and for preventive procedures. A substantial amount of research has been conducted in order to bring forth materials that are durable and functional for the long term. Dental materials come in many forms. Some materials are primary materials used to build the foundation of a dental restoration, while others are modified to form other maintenance products. The two primary categories for dental materials consist of restoration materials and preventive materials. Dental restoration materials are designed to restore broken and damaged teeth, while preventive materials are those that are used to protect the teeth from further damage. Primary Dental restoration materials, such as dental amalgam, are among the most common materials used in dentistry. Dental amalgam is a combination of metals such as mercury, silver, chlorine, copper and sometimes tin. Its unique properties, durability and ability to bond with the tooth structure make it the preferred material used in many dental practices. Dental composite is another restoration material that is used in modern day dentistry. This material is more susceptible to wear than amalgam, but it provides a more aesthetically pleasing result. Preventive materials are also used in modern dentistry. Fluoride is one example of a preventive material that is, used to prevent dental caries. Fluoride is available in many forms such as toothpaste, mouthwashes and dietary supplements. Sealants also play major role in protecting teeth from decay and are available in many different forms. Dental materials are constantly evolving, and with advancements in technology, new materials are being developed and are available in the market. Biocompatible materials, are now available, which are safer, more durable and aesthetically better. Research is still being conducted in order to bring forth materials that are durable and long lasting for the maximum levels of care and success for the patients.
