Cariology and endodontology


Diagnostics

  • Investigation of erosive, abrasive and erosive/abrasive tooth wear
  • Investigation of carious demineralisation and remineralisation of dental hard tissues
  • Investigation of initial oral biofilm formation on different surfaces
  • Molecular markers in dentin and periapical fluid
  • Identification of the key symptoms associated with painful teeth

Microanatomy

  • Micro-computed tomography assessments

Prevention

  • Reduction of erosive, abrasive and erosive/abrasive tooth wear
  • Reduction of carious demineralisation and improvment of remineralisation of dental hard tissues

Material and technology related research

  • Optimization of polymerization characteristics and shrinkage kinetics of resin composite materials
  • Development and investigation of antibacterial effects of biomaterials
  • Optimization of marginal integrity of direct and indirect restorations
  • Root canal filling materials
  • Development of dentin lining materials containing highly reactive particles
  • Root canal irrigants and disinfectants

Tissue Engineering

  • Cell homing into the empty pulp space of human immature teeth
