SkelRegen, LLC is the first company to identify not one, but multiple small molecules that are osteoinductive and target different aspects of the skeletal tissue formation pathway. These unique compounds have been shown to successfully block specific intracellular/extracellular inhibitors of BMPs, key regulators of bone and soft tissue growth. Blocking the inhibitors of BMP dramatically enhances the body’s own stem cells and growth factors that regenerate bone and soft tissue.
Daily news, politics, business and comments from the world of dentistry. Dental Tribune International is the first global dental news network that reaches over 600,000 professionals in more than 90 countries and 25 languages.
Researchers from the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN) and IBM Research today unveiled the first-ever antimicrobial hydrogel that can break apart biofilms and destroy multidrug-resistant superbugs upon contact.
AACHEN, Germany: Researchers have developed a flexible and cost-effective apparatus to polish implants automatically. The project team has managed to reduce the time needed to process dental and blood-carrying implants while maintaining their high bio- and haemocompatibility.
Osigraft (Eptotermin Alfa) is approved for the treatment of tibial nonunions of at least nine months duration in skeletally mature patients where autograft has failed or is unfeasible. Osigraft is a prescription medicine. It contains osteoinductive recombinant human BMP-7 (INN eptotermin alfa) in an osteoconductive bovine type 1 bone collagen matrix. Osigraft is a locally applied, locally acting medicine. It is the osteoinductive factor for the onset of bone healing.

The material used for abutment components may influence the adhesion and colonization of microbial species. The aim of this in vivo investigation was to evaluate the biofilm formation on machined (MPT) or cast titanium (CPT) and zirconia abutments (Zc).
TERUDERMIS Artificial Dermis consists of the bottom layer, which is made of a low antigenic atelocollagen that is produced from a calf dermal collagen eliminated the telopeptide by a preparation of protease, and the silicone top layer that prevents the wound from infecting and controls per
Researchers believe that the 'DJ-1 protein' can be used to promote the formation of new bone tissue in patients suffering from osteoporosis by improving communication between bone making cells (osteoblasts) and blood vessel (endothelial) cells.
Conclusion: Within the limitations of this study, platform switching reduced strain surrounding the implant neck area in both EX and IN during loading. However, the decreases in strain values were greater with EX than with IN.

Adipose tissue derived stem cells (ASCs) based therapies for the repair and regeneration of various tissues have been widely investigated recently because of their multilineage potential and self-renewal capability
This prospective study was to evaluate the concept of intraoral welding as a suitable technique for fabricating a fixed restoration for the edentulous maxilla the day of surgery using standard and zygomatic implants.
We provide different types of synthetic bone grafts for various dental applications; Biphasic Periophil and βTCP Periophil.
Alessandro Dentoni's insight:
Cytophil has successfully developed and licensed several implantable medical device products. Cytophil’s expertise is the development, and manufacturing of these devices and there are multiple licensing opportunities currently available.
Tufts University School of Engineering researchers have developed a novel method for fabricating collagen structures that maintains the collagen's natural strength and fiber structure, making it useful for a number of biomedical applications.
