Regenerating Your Dental Enamel

Scientists have found a way to assist in regenerating hard tissues like tooth enamel if it gets destroyed. This method may also be used to help prevent teeth from decay.

Tooth enamel has a very strong structure which enables it to function for a very long time without being destroyed even if it’s exposed to acidic food and drink. Enamel can also withstand very extreme temperatures.

It’s not easy to lose tooth enamel, but if it gets destroyed it cannot be regenerated naturally like many other tissues in the human body. Many people are affected by the loss of enamel, which is why dentists have been searching for a way to help with the enamel recreation process.

Researchers at the Queen Mary University of London have found that there are materials that resemble tooth enamel by working exactly like it does and can be used in a number of ways to prevent several other dental complications.

There is a lot of excitement from the fact that the mineralization comes with opportunities to treat and help recreate dental enamel.

Dentists can develop bandages which can withstand the exposure to acids to help infiltrate the teeth, mineralize and treat dentin hypersensitivity.

The protein material used in mineralization stimulates the growth of apatite nanocrystals similar to the way they do when dental enamel develops naturally in the body.

The main goal is to utilize these specific proteins in mineralization in order to come up with materials which can emulate the hard structure of dental enamel. Through all of this research, scientists have discovered a technique with the ability to make the growth of synthetic materials easier.

This kind of approach can also be applied when it comes to regenerative medicine and to also help us to understand the effects of protein disorder, particularly in human physiology and pathology.

Complex Dental Problems?

Dr. Eli Friedman of Friedman Dental Group with its practices being one of the leading dental groups in South Florida, and are also part of a very small minority that perform life-changing reconstructive procedures to re-habilitate its patients from years of dental neglect joins eHealth Radio and the Dental Care and Health News Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Eli Friedman discuss the following:

What is a prosthodontist and what do they do?
What was the path you took to become a prosth-odontist (education and career background)?

What benefit does seeing a prosthodontist have for a complex dental treatment?

Dr. Eli Friedman Profile PictureDr. Eli Friedman is a recognized leader in reconstructive, esthetics and implant dentistry and is one of the few prosthodontists who places and restores dental implants. Dr. Friedman has placed and restored thousands of dental implants, including early and immediate loading. After graduating in 1998 from the prestigious Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts, he returned to his hometown of Toronto, Canada where he joined two of the most-renowned prosthodontic practices, focusing on cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry.

After six years of successful hands-on experience, Dr. Friedman completed an additional three-year post-graduate specialty certificate in prosthodontics at Nova Southeastern University’s School of Dental Medicine in Florida. His training was focused on full-mouth rehabilitation and dental implant surgery.

Dr. Friedman finished his three-year residency having placed and restored hundreds of implants, and was appointed chief resident of post-graduate prosthodontics. The combination of his six years in private practice and his three-year residency in prosthodontics made him one-of-a-kind in his field. In 2006, he lectured and presented extensively on dental implants, case presentation and was appointed teaching assignments at the University.

Dr. Eli Friedman lectures nationwide and is a fellow of the American Academy of Osseointegration, affiliated with the American Dental Association, and the American College of Prosthodontists. Having over 20 years of experience, he is regularly invited to lecture at many local and national dental organizations. Dr. Eli Friedman is married to Dr. Katia Friedman, who practices general and pediatric dentistry.

They have two daughters, Chloe and Lauren. The Friedman’s have four dental practices in South Florida—in Coral Springs, Plantation, Tamarac, and Palm Beach.
