How Biometics Are Used To Align Teeth
“Bioprosthetics” refers to any material that can support cells’ growth and development. It is the latest buzz in the world of medicine, dentistry and other related fields. Biometics’ most common use is to replace a tooth’s decaying enamel with a new one. This replacement is made possible by the introduction of a material known as “bioprostenol”.
What exactly is this material? It is a clear, semisolid, plastic-like liquid. It is applied to the teeth through a gums-and-bite separator. This process is carried out under local anaesthetic. The new tooth comes out with dentin intact and healthy.
The process of biometics has proved to be immensely useful and effective in dental surgeries. Previously used only in emergency dental cases, it is now commonly used for teeth implant surgeries and even as fillings. The procedure makes use of synthetic substitutes (polymers). Unlike other artificial teeth, this material doesn’t get stained by food particles, salts and sugars. In addition, it is resistant to acids, alkalis, certain enzymes and other harmful substances.
Biometics also come in different shapes and sizes. Some have raised ridges along their surface. Other kinds are flat and conical in shape. They are used for implants. Moreover, biometics are available in various colour shades such as white, natural, silver, bronze and gold. However, the colour can be changed if the patient prefers to.
Another important function of biometics is in the field of dentistry. It is used as crowns in the case of dental crowns. It is also used to cover the teeth during dental bridges, when the jawbone has grown sideways and there is a gap between the teeth. It acts as a good dental guard.
Furthermore, biometics are also used as a temporary substitute for other crowns and dental prosthetics. They can be fitted at any stage and can be removed whenever the need arises. Therefore, it ensures that no additional cost is incurred in terms of changing them. It also helps to give the impression of strength and durability.
The major advantage of biometics is that it is a painless procedure. However, it can be more expensive than other methods because of its time-consuming nature. There are various kinds of biometics available in the market. Some of them are traditional, invisalign.
Traditional biometics, such as Invisalign and traditional invisalign methods are removable. However, since traditional invisalign has been made reusable, the costs involved with replacing it is reduced. It is basically a set of aligners or tooth-colored bands, which are made from plastic. These bands fit over each tooth. When one views the back of the aligner in profile, it appears like the pointed arch of the tooth. This is the reason why biometics perform better than Invisalign.
Traditional biometics have gaps in between the aligners. Sometimes the teeth are misaligned. This may result in chipped teeth. When the aligners wear out, they require replacement. It is therefore important for users to use biometics of high quality so as to avoid this problem.
Invisalign is another popular method used for replacing tooth aligners. The main advantage of this method is that the aligners can be removed by yourself. One just needs to remove them once in a while and floss the teeth. The dentist will be informed about any changes in the teeth’s shape or color. This is done in order to maintain the original look of the teeth.
Invisalign is basically a removable frame which is fitted over the front part of the teeth. They are placed and bonded to the front surface of the teeth. It is made of a strong material which cannot be easily broken down.
A major disadvantage of invisalign is that the patient has to visit the dentist at least twice as many times as required to replace the aligners. It can be quite expensive in addition to being uncomfortable. A better option would be to go in for wearing braces which can be removed by oneself. This is because biometics can sometimes be difficult to remove.
