Biomimetics is the art of mimicking nature, in dentistry biomimetics can be applied in many ways.
The goal of this presentation will be to highlight new materials and methods to transform conventional dentistry into biomimetic.
The presentation has six interesting chapters dealing with soft tissue problems (gingival recessions), bony problems (Infra-bony defects), soft and hard tissue problems (ridge defects), management of periodontal and prosthetic problems (around teeth and implants), problems related to excessive gingival display (gummy smile), and to finish peri-implanvology (the art of making teeth on implants look natural). It will be an exciting journey through clinical approaches that will enhance your practice and results.
