We provide studies on the indication of various radiographic examinations in dental diagnostics and treatment planning, in particular CT scanning. Will the subsequent treatment be of higher quality when CT is available: fewer side effects, less painful, faster operations, fewer complications, and cost-effective? International guidelines for CT are established.

We study the effect of using Cone Beam Computer Tomography as a supplement of 2D images in diagnosing pathology in teeth, jaws and at dental implants, as well as in treatment planning of implant placement. Recently, focus has been put on investigating the potential of MRI in the field of dentistry.

We investigate endodontic disease, in particular apical periodontitis, its occurrence in the population, prevalence, persistence and incidence, and factors related to diagnosis and treatment. The overall goal being to improve diagnosis and treatment of endodontic disease in the general population.

We investigate the impact of the 3D radiographic imaging method Cone Beam CT on pathological changes and diseases in teeth and the surrounding bone with the overall goal to improve diagnosis and treatment. We aim to suggest evidence-based radiographic protocols with the patient as center of attention.

The focal point of our research is dental biomechanics. How does mechanical loading influence the biological behaviour of the dentoalveolar complex? For this we study the material properties, both of dentoalveolar tissues and dental appliances. Also their structures are examined through 3D imaging.

We develop and test 2D and 3D diagnostic imaging technologies to provide accurate diagnostic information to other specialized professionals. Our goal is to support clinical decision-making, providing adequate image quality and reduce the radiation burden to the patients, in several fields of dentistry and oral health

Assistant Professors and Postdocs

We evaluate an array of imaging methods used for diagnosis of endodontic disease, in particular apical periodontitis, to improve the diagnostic efficacy. We work to improve knowledge on clinical decision-making and treatment planning in order to provide patients the best possible treatment outcome.
