203  Mineralized Tissues:Science, Engineering & Clinical Aspects  (2 units)   Spring

Course will not be offered in: Spring 2022

Instructor(s): S. Ho, S. Habelitz       Prerequisite(s): Enrollment in a postgraduate program.

Restrictions: None       Activities: Direct - Lecture, Student - Lecture

This course will emphasize Mineralized Tissues and the use of Biomaterials for the Craniofacial Complex. Focus is on understanding diverse aspects of craniofacial development, in particular the biology and engineering of mineralized tissue including the formation of specialized matrices which enable biomineralization, stem cell biology and morphogenesis, as well as etiologies of diseases and clinical approaches to tissue or organ repair.

213  Chemical Aspects of Dental Caries  (2 units)   Fall

Instructor(s): P. Rechmann       Prerequisite(s): None

Restrictions: None       Activities: Direct - Lecture, Student - Lecture

The biochemical basis for understanding the mechanisms of dental caries will be presented. Topics include tooth ultrastructure, tooth chemistry, plaque metabolism, immunology, protective functions of saliva, enzymes, caries risk assessment, the roles of fluoride, and mechanisms of de- and remineralization.
