Innovations in Bioengineering for Dental Implant Site Development (M-3)

  7:00 - 8:00 am

William Giannobile, DDS, MS, DMedSc

This presentation will discuss the principles of regenerative medicine including biologic scaffolds, cell therapies, growth factors and the future of 3D printing as well as the challenges with the development of new, more predictable therapies for treating both soft tissue and hard tissue defects around teeth and dental implants.

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) explain the range of tissue engineering products and applications; 2) discuss the advantages and limitations of tissue engineering in today’s clinical practice; and 3) describe what may be available in the near future for both implant dentistry and periodontics.
