Dental Biomaterials Laboratory

Dental Biomaterials Laboratory

(Cabula Campus)

The experimental laboratory of Bahiana, aimed at research activities in areas of knowledge related to health, is used by in-house researchers and by collaborators from other institutions. 

Its structure serves, mainly, the research of the lines of Clinical Dentistry and Implantology of the PPgO. The research carried out in this space has the objective of investigating properties, indications and techniques for the use of dental biomaterials. The works approach the construction of scientific evidence with emphasis on development, innovation, evaluation of criteria for successes and failures of biomaterials.
