Biomineralizing coatings for maxillofacial implants

Biomineralizing coatings for maxillofacial implants

Objective

There is great need for more effective bone grafts to treat craniomaxillofacial (CMF) complications. Bone grafting, which accounted for 24 million procedures and $3.3 billion in sales worldwide in 2010, is critical to treat CMF complications associated to trauma, tumour removal, or congenital disorders. However, the use of traditional autogenous or allogenic grafts possesses a number of problems. MINGRAFT aims to establish a new scalable bioactive coating for bespoke implants to treat mandibular bone complications. The project will aim to develop a coating that is tuneable, easy to fabricate, versatile, and that can promote the rapid integration of mandibular implants while stimulating bone regeneration.
