Panel: Dental Biomaterials in Translation: Considerations in Regulatory Approval and Clinical Adoption (Joint Inter-Society SFB-IADR)

Timeslot: Friday, April 23, 2021 - 1:45pm to 3:15pm
Track: Musculoskeletal and Craniofacial Biomaterials
Room: Virtual


Innovation in dental treatments relies on a clear pathway from the laboratory bench to the dental chair, but the path can be riddled with hurdles along the way. Regulatory approval may seem like the greatest challenge, but market penetration may be far more difficult. How have innovations such as 3D printing and digital dentistry challenged the established paradigms of dentistry and oral surgery? How can future technologies deliver on the potential for improved production time, fidelity, and quality to patients? This session features perspectives on how disruptive ideas can be realized in clinical applications.
