Home of the Biological/Biocompatible Dentistry Database

The IAOMT Library is a searchable database of resources related to biological and biocompatible dentistry. 

You can search the library by typing in a word, phrase, or a number of words in the keyword box.  The database will provide all items containing the keywords you specify, such as a topic, author, or any term or combination of terms.  Some examples of commonly used keyword searches include allergy, Alzheimer’s disease, atraumatic restorative treatment, Children’s Amalgam Trial, composites, immune system, multiple sclerosis, occupational, oral lichenoid, and pregnancy. 

The library is also organized by type, category, and subcategory.  To select more than one option from any of these menus, highlight each of the selections with your cursor while holding the “Ctrl” button.  All options are included if no selection is made.

When designating the type of file you would like to retrieve from our library, you can opt for Text (Word, PDF, etc.), Video, Slideshow, Image, Audio, and/or Other.

The category menu allows you to search the library by specific topics, including Mercury (resources related to the health risks of dental mercury amalgam fillings), Fluoride (resources related to the health risks of fluoride and its use in dentistry), Periodontal Disease (resources related to gum disease and its treatment), and Other (resources related to other dental materials, conditions, and procedures, such as bisphenol-A, cavitations, composite fillings, detoxification, ozone therapy, and root canals).

You can also apply one subcategory or more to further define your search, including Science (peer-reviewed studies, reviews, risk assessments, and other science-based materials), Regulatory and Legal (items about government action, citizen campaigns, and/or litigation), News and Media Reports (news stories, feature articles, televised segments, and press releases), Education (items created for educational purposes by a variety of sources for health care professionals, dentists, dental consumers, and the general public), and Other (all entries to our database that do not fit into the subcategories mentioned above).

Finally, you can choose to sort your search results by Title, Year, or Author. You can further specify if your results should be listed in an Ascending order (A to Z or Past to Present) or in a Descending order (Z to A or Present to Past).
