IMG_2838

More than 15 million root canals are conducted every year in the United States, but that number could soon start to drop. Dental researchers at the Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) in Portland, Oregon have developed a new method of engineering artificial blood vessels in teeth, as explained in a new study that could potentially revolutionize the dental industry.

Published in the journal Scientific Reports this month, the groundbreaking OHSU technique could provide an effective alternative to root canals by using a 3D printing-inspired approach. Continue reading… “3D printed blood vessels in teeth a viable alternative to root canal procedures”
