The Spanish country Graphenano is studying the use of Graphene nanotechnology in dentistry. They recently exhibited their products at the 2021 International Dental Show, such as their G-Cam disc, a Graphene Nanoreinforced Biopolymer Disc designed for CAD/CAM milling systems.
“Unlike zirconia, for example, which is still widely used, our graphene nano-reinforced biopolymer G-CAM disc has excellent blending properties,” explained Graphenano Dental General Manager Jesús Martínez. He went on to say that “the appearance is extremely natural and resolves all the mechanical, physico-chemical and biological failures of the rest of the materials currently used in the industry. Our material also benefits patients, of course, as it is really light and a lot softer than zirconia. A zirconia prosthesis that weighs 70 g may only weigh as little as 12 g when manufactured using the resin and graphene combination. With G-CAM, patients feel no difference to their natural teeth,” Jesús Martínez of Graphenenano
