  • pulp
  • Some dental restorative materials such as acrylic monomers in resin-based materials and phosphoric acid in silicate materials may pose toxic and irritable effects to the pulp. (wikipedia.org)
  • To prevent the pulp from deteriorating when a dental restoration gets near the pulp, the dentist will place a small amount of a sedative dressing, such as calcium hydroxide or MTA. (wikipedia.org)
  • These materials, protect the pulp from noxious agents (heat, cold, bacteria) and stimulate the cell-rich zone of the pulp to lay down a bridge of reparative dentin. (wikipedia.org)
  • Instead, the dentist intentionally leaves the softened dentin/decay in place, and uses a layer of protective temporary material which promotes remineralization of the softened dentin over the pulp and the laying down of new layers of tertiary dentin in the pulp chamber. (wikipedia.org)
  • A temporary filling is used to keep the material in place, and about 6 months later, the cavity is re-opened and hopefully there is now enough sound dentin over the pulp (a "dentin bridge") that any residual softened dentin can be removed and a permanent filling can be placed. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissue
  • Another area of development is that of remineralising and regenerating dental tissue, whose natural capacity for regeneration in adults is very limited. (nanowerk.com)
  • Generally, 3D bioprinting utilizes the layer-by-layer method to deposit materials known as Bioinks to create tissue-like structures that are later used in medical and tissue engineering fields. (wikipedia.org)
