Dental Materials Science

The general objective of this program is to predict and improve the clinical performance of dental restorative materials covering the complete range of materials involved in the procedures of creating restorations with direct or indirect techniques. Composition, structure and fabrication of the materials as well as their handling and application techniques are studied in vitro as well as in vivo. The increasing trend to replace the difficult and costly manual procedures by automated procedures with information technology is being studied on its merits. In particular the possible advantages of the automated production of indirect restorations by CAD/CAM technology are evaluated.
