Design of smart biomaterials

Realistically, the translation of truly regenerative treatments to clinical practice is likely a longer term goal, so the need for improved reparative/restorative materials is undeniable. Simple examples are direct dental restorations and root canal obturations. A lot of money and further damage to native tissues would be saved if we could come up with better materials. Also, since these materials reside in the oral cavity,... more »

Novel Bioactive Materials

Recent trends in dental materials manufacturing demonstrate the increased inclusion of antibacterial and bioactive components in a variety of materials. Based on the reasons for failure of dental composites, and the higher than ideal failure rate, novel materials with bioactive additives that can inhibit disease and repair or replace lost tissue are essential.

Development of nanostructured trans-mucosal drug delivery system

Idea is development of novel nano-structured intra-orally active trans-mucosal (and or intra-periodontal) drug delivery system that continuously release Parathyroid hormone in the alveolar bone of jaws for long time to create local osteopenia by the activation of osteoclast locally to create local osteopenia for accelerated orthodontic tooth movement to considerably reduce the orthodontic treatment time from years to... more »

Lingual Strengthening Treatment for Dysphagia and Oral Health

Device-facilitated lingual strengthening has been shown to result in improved swallowing function and increased saliva production in patients with dysphagia. However, the impact of this treatment approach on oral health as it relates to broader health-related outcomes, such as pneumonia development, requires further study.

Biostimulation of salivary gland in oral cancer patients

Utilisation of biofeed back chip implanted in denture to promote stimulation of salivary glands to screate saliva in patients undergoing Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy in Cancer treatment. This can help the patients in fast recovery time from the effects of treatment and also promotes overall oral health in them .

Thrapeutic Gum Irrigator

A multi-use hand held oral device which is used to precisely and easily deliver an undiluted antimicrobial agent in incremental doses through a illuminating rotatable cannula tip (with sides ports and end port) into a periodontal pocket. A separate blunt ended cannula tip will deliver Gel Kam, stannous fluoride to remineralize incipient caries in hard to reach areas under crowns & bridges, root caries, furcations, and... more »

Innovative Technologies in Dental/Oral / Craniofacial health

Innovative Technologies will be key in individual and population monitoring of dental, oral and Craniofacial health and disease states and will form a major diagnostic and public health tool. Digital platforms will require dental/oral and Craniofacial workforce with enhanced training to deliver interactive and transformational solutions to communities.

: Designing smart clothes for dentists

Work-related musculoskeletal disorders are the most prevalent problems among dentists. We aim to introduce a device to improve the ergonomic status of musculoskeletal disorders among dentists through clothes that are equipped with simple sensors in waist, neck, and wrist areas, evaluate the dentist’s bending and tension and the duration of a position, then analyze the collected data, and finally warn him about his current... more »

Interproximal remineralization delivery system.

Inter-proximal decays are currently mainly treated with surgical method with dental burs. Current remineratlization methods are not effective enough for inter-proximal surfaces and therefore not practical as routine use for dental offices. Most initial proximal decays end up watch and then surgical restoration.
My idea is developing a delivery system to maintain high concentration of remineraliztion materials on... more »
