Nanobiomaterial and Drug Delivery Strategies for Dental/Craniomaxillofacial Repair/Regeneration

Scope

Dental and craniomaxillofacial tissues are key indicators to overall health and socialization of individuals. Repair/regeneration of these tissues present significant challenges due their complex geometries and highly hierarchical and integrated structures including hard and soft tissues. Manufacturing techniques including bioprinting, electrospinning, layered scaffolds/membranes, injectable gels, composites, ceramics, 3D printing, nanoprinting, nanoassemble, rapid protyping, laser sintering and microfluidic based printing are some of the biofabrication/biomanufacturing techniques being pursued to produce tissue constructs and engineered scaffolds with pre-designed macro- micro- and nano- features, gradient physic-chemical properties and custom shapes to restore both function and aesthetics in craniomaxillofacial therapies.
