The intent of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to stimulate research on the development of novel or enhanced dental restorative materials for Class V lesions that demonstrate superiority in clinical service life over the currently used restorative options. The requirements of Class V restorative materials (those placed within the gingival third of the exposed tooth) are complex, due to the unique material characteristics required by the oral environment and the complications hindering dental treatment in this region.For these reasons, this FOA encourages research that will produce fundamental improvements in Class V restorative dental materials.
