Calcium phosphate ceramics for the 3D printing of custom-made bone implants with adjustable resorption

The aim of this project is the development of custom-made bone implants with adjustable resorption. New calcium phosphate-based granules are needed to be used to produce custom-made resorbable bone implants using 3D printing process. The implants should be customized to the patient’s needs regarding the inner and outer geometry and the resorption. The use of these bone implants is primarily intended for the field of oral and maxillofacial surgery.
