The following equipment is available for biomaterials research.

Specialty Equipment for Measurement of Root Sensitivity

Gingival recession that is common during middle-age causes root exposure and sensitivity to cold. Evaluation of treatments to reduce this sensitivity requires instrumentation capable of delivering a focused stimulus of controlled temperature along with a protocol to access the painful response. Clinical scientists at the Cruzan Center for Dental Research have refined several novel instruments to test changes in cold sensitivity.
