Research Projects

High Frequency Forces

We are conducting studies on the effect of high frequency forces in bone remodeling and tooth movement both in human and animals (Patent pending).

Mechanical Stimulation of Sutural and Condylar Growth

In these studies the biological response of craniofacial sutures and condyles are examined in response to a number of mechanical regimens.

Gene Therapy

These studies focus on prenatal and postnatal transduction and transfection methods to correct craniofacial syndromes and malformations.

Tooth Movement in the Absence of Estrogen

These studies investigate the effect of estrogen deficiency on the rate of tooth movement and bone response to mechanical stimulation.
