On tooth bioprinting

Reinhilde Jacobs

presentation by Reinhilde Jacobs, Professor Dentomaxillofacial Radiology & research coordinator OmfsImpath, University of Leuven

Missing teeth are nowadays often replaced by osseointegrated implants. Unfortunately, children with missing teeth can not be helped by such implant treatment. In the search for a solution to help such children, the idea of tooth bioprinting was introduced. When such concept could be developed, it might offer possibilities not only to help young patients with missing teeth, yet also it might be opened up to help all patients with missing teeth. The presentation will cover all challenges and opportunities to advance realizing this goal.
