Summary

Periodontitis is a major cause of irreversible destruction of tissues leading to a loss of attachment between teeth and their supporting tissues. Several strategies are being tested experimentally to enhance periodontal regeneration, one of them being the use of stem cells.
In this study, eligible participants that are patients of the James B. Edwards College of Dental Medicine scheduled to have their teeth extracted. The teeth being extracted from patients during oral surgery, which otherwise would be discarded, will be donated for laboratory tests.

Evaluation of the Potential for 3D Imaging and Virtual Planning in Nasoalveolar Molding Appliances for Cleft Palate Babies Save

Summary

Nasoalveolar molding appliances have been shown to be useful in the treatment of cleft lip and palate infants. The NAM appliance helps in reducing the cleft size prior to surgery and helps with columella elongation. Obtaining an impression for an infant puts the infant at risk for airway complications. The purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility of using an intraoral dental scanner in obtaining a digital impression of the cleft palate.
