Bioactive Nanocomposites for Dentinogenic Restoration

Nadkarni, Lauren
2009

Restoration of bone after injury is essential. There are two current repair mechanisms, root canals and bioactive molecule implants, both of which can be costly and have inconsistent material properties with the target tissue. Therefore, novel bioactive chimeric proteins were developed containing a spider dragline silk domain for strength and stability and a domain containing either an R5 or A3 si... read more
