A team of researchers from Sydney Dental School, University of NSW and the University of Wollongong have received a CRC-P grant with a total project value of $8.3 million, to develop a new fibre-reinforced dental composite.

 

Mercury-based dental restoration amalgams are being phased out worldwide due to mercury toxicity.

 

Now, for the first time, Associate Professor Ayman Ellakwa from the Sydney Dental School and colleagues have developed new glass fibre-reinforced composite dental restoration material whose mechanical properties nearly match those of amalgam.

 

Funded by a $3 million Cooperative Research Centre Projects (CRC-P) Grant, with a total project value of $8.3 million, the team are working to transfer this new material, together with tools for its manufacture and testing, to the Australian industry.

 

The project is due to be completed mid-2022.

 

“I am very proud that the Sydney Dental School is part of this competitive award that will work to develop a new fibre-reinforced dental composite,” Sydney Dental School head and dean Professor Heiko Spallek said.
