Eating, swallowing, talking, breathing and moving the jaws without pain or discomfort is essential for our quality of life. We focus our research on how to maintain or obtain good orofacial function.
We specialize in orofacial neuroscience and advanced orofacial rehabilitation. We aim to understand the complex trigeminal system and to limit the negative consequences of orofacial functional impairments for the individual and society. We study management of pain, abnormal growth and rehabilitation of lost or compromised orofacial function with digital technologies, advanced orthopedic, orthodontic and prosthetic techniques.
We bridge several different disciplines within dentistry and form natural research collaborations with other research disciplines within medicine, surgery, biomechanics, food science as well as with industrial partners in Denmark and internationally.
