Dental/Craniofacial Biomaterials (SIG)

Timeslot: Thursday, April 28, 2022 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm
Room: Laurel A-B, 4th Floor


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.
