Nature is our ideal model to imitate. Biomimicry is a new discipline that studies nature's best ideas and then imitates these designs and processes to solve human problems Biomimetics is the field of science that uses the natural system for synthesizing materials through biomimicry. A Biomimetic material can replace, regenerate or mimic the missing tooth structure and helps to return the tooth to its full function and esthetics. This article provides a literature review of biomimetic materials and its applications in various fields mainly in restorative dentistry.

Dentigerous cyst (DC) is a developmental odontogenic cyst that encloses the crown of an unerupted tooth by expansion of its follicle with accumulation of fluid between the reduced enamel epithelium and the tooth crown and is attached to the neck of the tooth. The lining of DCs shows a potential for neoplastic transformation to ameloblastoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and mucoepidermoid carcinoma. Here, we report a rare case of an acanthomatous ameloblastoma arising in the wall of a DC.

The relationship between parental and child dental anxiety is explicit and has been a controversy which has been studied over many decades. Though various methodologies have been evolved and proposed through the years, it still seems to be a topic of concern. Aim: To provide an overall view of the published link between the explicit relationship between parental and child dental anxiety. Study design: A structured review. Results: Forty three studies were included in the review, which ranged widely between research designs, age ranges and methodologies. The relationship is more evident in children below 8 years. Conclusion: The narrative synthesis demonstrates a significant relationship between parental and child dental anxiety with more evidence in the younger age group.
