Dental Material & Bioengineering
Researchers within the School of Dentistry's labs are behind numerous patents and research advances that have led to the creation of new types of dental materials.
Diabetes & Oral Health
Diabetes continues to be a major concern in oral health care. Oral complications with diabetes can include dry mouth, dental caries, candidiasis, periodontal disease and tooth loss.
Oral cancers are common, with approximately 400,000 new cases and 200,000 deaths worldwide in 2013.
Research is an important activity in the Department of Endodontics. Although our funded projects cover diverse topics, much of our efforts emphasize translational and basic science research projects that evaluate pain mechanisms.
