Information for Patients

Graphene is the new bidimensional material that has attracted a lot of attention as of recent due to its unique structural, electronic properties, and biocompatibility. (click here to read more on graphene)

Additionally, graphene has been shown to stimulate tissue growth. This is especially important for the health of the alveolar ridge after prosthetic rehabilitation as a graphene oxide prosthetic physically becomes an integral part of the mouth, not just something attached to it.

Regained Feelings

Due to its conductivity and flexible properties, graphene has the ability, unlike any other material used in dentistry before, to transport external stimuli such as temperature and pressure. This along with the ability to blend with the tissue surrounding the prosthesis, make graphene oxide prosthesis blend naturally with your masticatory system, giving a more realistic experience. Something that could not be achieved until now.

Proprioception

Proprioception, also referred to as kinaesthesia, is the sense of self-movement and body position. Proprioception is mechanism that the body uses to sense the position of everything within itself, such as the exact position of your arm relative to your head or any other part of your body. A graphene oxide prosthesis will help maintain proprioception in the mouth.

Safety and Durability

Graphene is both safe and extremely durable. Harder than diamond, graphene is essentially carbon, a very safe and well researched material used in multiple applications in medicine already. This makes graphene oxide infused
