Research & Development

The Biomaterials Laboratory has a long list of material properties that it can test. For example, as CAD CAM products evolve, we are testing TP (translucency parameter) and strength properties. Also, new composites are being tested for TP, strength, bond strength, and radiopacity. Impression material, cement, instrument cleaner and curing light performance have also been popular to test for the dental community. We work with manufacturers to develop and perform testing which fairly and honestly provides the information to help them enter the market with an excellent product.

 

THE DENTAL ADVISOR Infection Control  Research Center provides custom microbiological testing of infection control products, including pre- and post-market testing of infection control products and equipment. Results are reported in THE DENTAL ADVISOR Research Report, scientific abstracts and THE DENTAL ADVISOR Translating the Science articles.
