Regulatory requirements throughout the development process

Regulatory requirements need to be considered throughout the medical device or drug development processes. These are critical to a successful market approval/clearance. Attention to regulatory requirements early in the process will help build a solid submission to government agencies and a sustainable post-market plan.

Cone Beam CT scanner with built in head and neck scanner

Traditional Cone Beam CT units emit x-radiation.The anatomical structures are recorded as a volume that can be viewed in three dimensions using a special software. It would be really worthwhile examining the soft tissues as well using digital techniques that automatically record changes in the surface temperature, presence or absence of soft tissue swelling, fluid imbalance and other topographic changes by simultaneously... more »

Oral biosensors for precise monitoring and delivery of medicines

Develop an oral biodevice that can monitor and allow for precise dosing of medications . There are significant variations in how individuals metabolize drugs, influenced by genetics, epigenetics, diet, and other prescription medications. Coordinating this monitoring device with an automated delivery system or a mobile device notification system would also help with medication compliance, and reduce complications caused... more »

Special probe for Indirect pulp capping

When a tooth is decayed, and the need for root treatment is not certain, about 0.5 cm of the dentin can be kept over the pulp that can be protected by som materials. This is called Indirect pulp capping.is extremely difficult to implement it in clinic, because it is very difficult to clinically identify a distance of 0.5 mm from the nerve.Ultrasound probes and electrical impedance are used, and the indirect pulp capping... more »

BeyondTissueLevel (BTL) implant---the future of dental implant

There are two types of dental implant for two pieces implant: bone level and tissue level implant. Both have micro gap "inside body" initiating inflammation all the time. There are many ways in "dealing with" the problem, like platform switch design. The ideal and final solution is completely "avoid/prevent the problem" by making the micro gap "outside body"
The ideal dental implant should be, and will be the BeyondTissueLevel... more »

A Cheap Feedback Sensor Device for Teaching Dentistry Student

The goal of this study is to provide a more affordable option for dental students training while maintaining all the advantages of the haptic system using graphene sensors. This study aims at creating a feedback mechanism using a cheap sensor made with graphene, which can be produced at a minimum cost to dental programs. The graphene sensors will provide tactile feedback in evaluating dental disease and also, help trainees... more »

A Deep Learning oral health AI to provide a picture of health

Deep learning technology has made dramatic advances in the last few years. These artificially intelligent systems can be trained using rich and abundant data sets to facilitate highly accurate diagnostics. Deep learning AI can now do as good if not better job of deciphering diagnostic images such as MRIs than experienced and trained clinicians. Imagine a Deep Learning AI system that could be sent a smartphone picture... 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 »
