3d bioprinting for bone regeneration:
Translating research into clinical practice
More than 50 percent of dental implant cases require bone augmentation procedures of various extend. Conventional techniques are often aggressive, less comfortable to the patient, and require a longer duration of surgery, which can affect the healing process and treatment outcome. 3D printed bone scaffold could help to avoid these problems. Moreover, it could be custom made before the surgery and have specific features that are more compatible with the host tissues.
In-vitro and animal experiments
Data from clinical trials soon will be published
- Post-extraction defect regeneration study in humans.
- Guided bone regeneration efficiency of OSSEUM4D scaffolds
