Research/NIDCR Funding

The National Institute for Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) conducts nearly 85% of the research for oral disease and conditions. NIDCR is essential to conducting investigative studies necessary for the advancement of oral and maxillofacial surgical and other dental-related procedures and treatment modalities that will improve health care outcomes for all Americans. AAOMS supports increased NIDCR funding, which helps sponsor such research projects as wound healing, pain management, tissue engineering, and minimally invasive surgery for maxillofacial trauma.
