Bioactive Dental Materials
New materials and continuous improvement of traditional restorative materials, allow the potential to self-repair by crystalline formation or ion exchange: these materials are called bioactive agents, and they are indicated for controlling the demineralization/remineralization cycle and for other preventive and restorative procedures. Materials for enamel and dentin caries lesions include remineralizing agents such as amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP), calcium silicate phosphate, novamin, calcium aluminates, and restorative materials: glass ionomer cements, giomers, modified composite resins, new adhesive systems and biosilicates. Composition, remineralizing mechanisms and clinical examples will be presented in this lecture.

Learning Objectives :
  1. Definition of bioactivity, related to dental materials.
  2. Bioactive materials classification.
  3. Composition, properties and clinical indications of bioactive materials.  
Minimally Invasive Dentistry
Minimally invasive dentistry (MID) focuses on the least invasive procedures in order to treat caries disease minimizing tissue loss and patient discomfort. Concentrating mainly on new diagnostic tools, on prevention and early intervention of caries signs and symptoms (demineralization), MID’s basic principle is the remineralization of early carious lesions, through a biological or therapeutic approach rather than the traditional surgical approach for early surface lesions. By the usage and application of remineralizing agents to tooth structure (enamel and dentin lesions), a new era of dentistry aimed at controlling the demineralization/remineralization cycle, has allowed the development of new bioactive materials and less invasive and sensitive techniques. 

Learning Objectives :
  1. Understanding caries disease and its minimal treatment.
  2. The minimally invasive dentistry fields: Diagnosis, Prevention and Treatment.
