This book offers readers a valuable overview of recent advances in biomedical engineering, as applied to the fashionable dentistry. It begins by studying the biomaterials in dentistry, and materials used intraoperatively during oral and maxillofacial surgery procedures.
Next, it considers the themes during which biomedical engineers are often influential, like 3-dimensional (3D) imaging, laser and photobiomodulation, surface modification of dental implants, and bioreactors. Hard and soft tissue engineerings in dentistry are discussed, and a few specific and essential methods like 3D-printing are elaborated.
Presenting particular clinical functions of regenerative dentistry and tissue engineering in treatment of oral and maxillofacial soft tissues is that the subject of a separate chapter. Challenges within the rehabilitation handling of huge and localized oral and maxillofacial defects may be a severe issue in dentistry, which are considered to know how bioengineers help with treatment methods during this regard.
