Research Focus

Regenerative Medicine & Biomechanics

Area of Research

 

Translational and clinical research in reconstructive dentistry involves the development, testing and application of various materials for fixed dental prostheses (crown-bridge), removable dental restorations and restorations on dental implants. The goal is to optimize the CAD / CAM support in fabrication and development of low biofilm adherence surfaces, focusing on soft tissue interactions, hard tissue adhesion, and the mechanical stability of screwed and cemented reconstructions.


Approved Research Projects

 

ITI (2019 – 2022): Supplementary implants supporting conventional RDP’s in Kennedy Class I and II: A dual-centered randomized controlled clinical trial N°1376_2019 (N. Zitzmann)
