Boston Researcher Uses Technology to Help Jaw Degeneration

Boston University researcher Pushkar Mehra utilizes 3-D printing and principles of engineering to save the lives of patients with Idiopathic condylar resorption, a condition where the bones in the jaw can degrade and block the ability to breathe.

In the video, you will see a grateful patient that received surgical intervention with the help of Mehra's research. To learn more about the work that Boston University Dental School is doing, follow this link.
