The role of sea urchins in dental treatment and implants

Recent research indicates that sea urchins might offer dental composite structures that are stronger and less likely to fracture.

Key takeaways:

– Nature makes 3-D CaCO3 materials to form vertebrate bone, seashells, invertebrate exoskeletons, dentine and enamel.

– Sea urchin spicules are just chalk until sea urchin proteins are added, to form an extremely tough structure.

–  The spicules have a recombinant form of SM50, rSpSM50 that facilitates the formation of fracture-resistant structures.

Soon your dentist might have stronger dental implants for you.
