Using State Of The Art Materials At Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry

Bioceramics dental patient in Colorado Springs, CO

What Are Bioceramics?

Bioceramics are ceramic materials designed specifically to be used in medical and dental implants. They replace hard tissue, including dental tissue, and can be bioactive (meaning they bond with living tissue and are gradually incorporated) or bioinert (meaning they do not interact with living tissue). Common bioceramics used in endodontics are alumina, which is highly resistant to wear, and calcium phosphate, which bonds to bone and promotes new bone growth.

How Do Bioceramics Affect Root Canal Treatment?

Thanks to bioceramic fillers and sealers, your root canal treatment can have an even better result! It will take fewer visits to complete than it used to, and the way the material bonds to the tooth gives it a higher chance of success. Just don’t take that as an excuse to skip out on your daily brushing and flossing!

I've been seeing Dr. Holsteen since 1992! The staff is wonderful! They are friendly and they talk to you! They are not robots! (Not to mention they play my favorite oldies station on Pandora when I go in!) I love these professionals because they make you feel at home!
