In pursuit of bioteeth
Architect Magazine
Biomimicry offers a provocative new model for the development of designs and technologies based on biology, and it is driving the pursuits of a variety of disciplines. However, the term can be misleading in its simplicity. The reality may be understood as a spectrum of approaches related to mimicking nature: at one end is taking simple inspiration from life, and at the other is actually creating new life. An example of the latter case may be found in the work of professor Paul Sharpe at King's College London's Dental Institute. Sharpe, who focuses on craniofacial development and stem cell biology, is attempting to create new teeth replacements out of biological cells from patients' own gum tissue.

Mouthguards are not one size fits all
Inside Dentistry via Dental Aegis
Many sports have the potential for orofacial injuries due to falls, collisions or contact with hard surfaces. Contact sports, such as football, rugby, hockey, basketball and soccer carry a greater risk of high-impact collisions and players are especially prone to dental injuries. These collisions involve acute transmission of energy to the teeth and supporting structures with fractures, dislocations, separations and crushing injuries occurring. Recent research has shown the improved ability of custom-built mouthguards to prevent injuries. A correctly designed and manufactured custom-built mouthguard will reduce the consequences of such traumas, but it must remain in place at impact to allow absorption and distribution of the impact forces.
