Science & Research - Research priorities

In order to provide you with even better service in the future, we are continuously working on improving the skills and expertise of our doctors and the clinic in the discipline of maxilla-facial surgery.

Implants

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots. A dental implant functions the same way as the patients’ own root, since it directly fuses with the bone. Implants anchor dentures, e.g. bridges, crowns or removable dentures securely to the bone.

Social projects

The clinic supports social and humanitarian projects in addition to their medical and scientific activity. For more details, see science and research.

Information for PhD students

In his function as adjunct professor, Professor Nolte at the Ruhr-University Bochum, provides the opportunity for physicians and dentists, to obain their doctorate by writing disserations about specifically recommended clinic topics. We closely cooperate with the Dental Clinic Munich (LMU Munich, Department of Periodontics and Restorative Dentistry, Director Dr. R. Hickel)

Current issues

  • Five-year success rate of endosseous implant in a implantologists practice
  • Unsolicited applications with interesting questions about the oral and maxillo-facial surgery will be gladly accepted.

Doctoral dissertations in progress

  • Investigate the success rate of autogenous tooth transplantation in young patients

(Marco Nazet)

The aim of this work is the success rate of autogenous tooth transplantation in young patients to investigate (not enclosed root growth). For this purpose, various clinical parameters are used, such as patient satisfaction, pocket depth measurement, sensitivity testing, aesthetic result, radiographic analysis of the carpal bones grouping).

  • Success rate of autogenous tooth transplantation in adult patients

(Johannes Kreutzer, 2013, LMU Munich)

The aim of this work is the success rate of autogenous tooth transplantation in adult patients examined (closed root growth). For this purpose, various clinical parameters are used, such as patient satisfaction, pocket depth measurement, sensitivity testing, aesthetic result, radiographic analysis of the carpal bones grouping).

Follow the success rate of apicoectomy in a mouth-jaw-facial surgical clinic

(Tanja Fiedler, 2013, LMU Munich)

The aim of this study was to analyze the success rate of root tip in the anterior and posterior regions using a specific surgical technique and by using a standard technique. It should draw conclusions about a possible improvement of technology are drawn.

Completed theses

  • Investigation of a practice software (impDAT) on the practical feasibility of a implantologists practice (2011)

(Alexander Liebig)

The aim of this study was to determine the usability of a software practice to examine the documentation of implants placed in the patient. The work was at the Ruhr University in Bochum on 13 with success Completed in December 2011 (magna cum laude)
