Biodentine: Periodontal perspective
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Maheaswari Rajendran, Dr. JeevaRekha M and Dr. Poorana K
ABSTRACT:Biodentine is a recently introduced calcium silicate based biomaterial that has gained momentum due to its varied applications in the field of dentistry including periodontics. It has been proposed as an ideal biomaterial for periodontal repair and/or regeneration in defects that has been created by pathways of communication between the periodontium and the pulp. It has outdated the other biomaterials due to its bioactivity and biocompatibility with the periradicular tissues and owing to its superior physical and chemical properties in the multifarious oral environment. But there are only a very few review articles explaining the behavioural characteristics of Biodentine. And to the best of our knowledge there is no review article till date on Biodentine in periodontics and its interaction with the periodontal tissues. This article provides an overview of the unique features of Biodentine and its dynamic interaction with the tissues of periodontium.
