Potential of High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) in Dental Restorative Fillings: A Novel Approach of Dentin Surface Conditioning: Biological Prospective
Here, we propose to investigate a novel concept and approach using High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU); a non-invasive technique where ultrasound-waves released from a high-powered transducer are focused at a small area of the tooth leading to minimal damage of surrounding tissues. At the focal point, HIFU has a localized mechanical-ablative effect on tissues with limited diffuse thermal impact making this technology suitable for a range of medical applications. We will investigate the potential application of HIFU technology in restorative dentistry. To improve the longevity of tooth-bonded restorations, we will use HIFU to condition the dentin creating a bonding substrate with high mineral content and of higher biodegradation resistance. A customized resin-based dentin-bonding agent with superior hydrolytic stability will then be applied to the HIFU-conditioned dentin. Finally, the antimicrobial and biological effects on surrounding tissues will be thoroughly investigated.
