Nanocomposites for dental applications
Inorganic-organic composites are used as dental cements, implant suprastructures and fillings.
In the frame work of the Colloborative Research Center SFB 599, the long term prognosis of
dental implants and fillings shall be improved by optimizing the degradation stability and the
mechanical properties of the composites by the development of innovative nanoscale fillers
and tailored polymeric binders.
