Dental/Craniofacial Materials SIG

Timeslot: Wednesday, April 11, 2018 - 1:00pm to 3:00pm
Track: Dental/Orthopaedic Biomaterials
Room: 206/207


The Dental/Craniofacial Materials SIG session focuses on the basic, applied, and clinical research of innovative biomaterials ranging from synthetic to biological origins. These bio-inspired materials are designed to repair dental/craniofacial tissue structures, restore their functions, and/or regenerate these tissues using tissue engineering approaches. Recent advances in dental biomaterial technologies include advanced bio-inspired inorganic, organic, and composite nanomaterials, controlled drug delivery strategies, surface modification, and 3D printing technology.
