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.

Protruding ears

Boy with protruding ears

Protruding ears can cause aesthetic and psychosocial stress for the patient. In general, at the age of 5 ears usually don’t show any further growth, and surgery is possible.

The procedure can be performed as an outpatient under local anesthesia or under short anesthesia. For this surgery, the cartilage of the ear structures can be reduced, or weakened. That way the shape of the ear can be reattached at an angle of apx. 30° away from the skull.
