  • Patent number: 10076392
    Abstract: An apparatus for mineralizing a biological material includes an ultrasonic source, operable to generate an ultrasonic signal, an ultrasonic probe and one or more mineralizing probes, operable to receive a mineralizing agent. The mineralizing agent is transferred from at least one mineralizing probe to the biological material using the ultrasonic signal. Also disclosed are a mineralization agent and a method of mineralizing a biological material that includes the steps of: providing an ultrasound source, providing a mineralizing agent, generating an ultrasonic signal from the ultrasound source, and applying the ultrasonic signal and the mineralizing agent to the biological material separately, sequentially or simultaneously.

  • Patent number: 8961179
    Abstract: An apparatus and method for mineralising demineralised and hypo-mineralised biological material such as tooth or bone. The apparatus has a probe electrode for receiving a mineralisation agent and a counter electrode. It is also provided with a controller to control the electrical signal provided to the probe such that the extent of mineralisation of the biological material is controlled by modulating or changing the electrical signal provided by the probe based upon the measured output of the circuit formed from the probe, counter electrode and biological material. The electrical output provides a measure of the extent of mineralisation of the biological material which is compared with data from a reference technique which gives 3D structural information on an area of interest in the biological material.
