Tooth Extraction Study
Protocol: STUDY00003566
Full Title
Characterization and Implementation of Bioactive Colloidal Gel with Tunable Mechanomorphology for Angiogenic and Odontogenic Differentiation of Cells
Description
This study enrolls people who are scheduled to have a tooth pulled. The purpose of this study is to learn more about the make up of the tissue inside the root canal of a tooth. We will use teeth that have been extracted that would otherwise be discarded for research purposes.

If you are scheduled to have your tooth extracted, you may be asked to be in this study. People in the study allow us to test their tooth after it has been removed from their mouth. We will use the soft tissue inside the root canal of the tooth to learn more about how the tissue regenerates. This study takes place at UB's Dental Clinic at UB's South Campus.

Compensation is not available.

Technical Description

Colloidal gel scaffolds will be developed using the mechanomorphological properties of dental pulp tissue. The effect of colloidal gel scaffolds on dental pulp stem cells viability and differentiation potentials will be investigated.
Compensation: No
Eligibility
Have been scheduled for a tooth extraction at UB's Dental Clinic.
Age Group: Adults
