Bio Printing New Jaw and Gum Cells to pioneer Dentistry Evolution

Periodontist Professor Saso Ivanovski, from Griffith University’s Menzies Institute has announced that he has developed a way to engineer missing bone and tissue in the gums and jaw by using a patient’s own cells after 5 years of research. This will involve taking CT scan of patient's damaged region which will be sent to bioprinter to 3D Print new part and the whole procedure will decrease the significant pain, nerve damage and postoperative swelling. National Health and Medical Research Council has granted it $650,000 for the potential it holds in dental industry.
