Aims of this research group

This research group has several aims:
  • Elucidating the factors involved in the development of secondary caries lesions and tooth wear
  • Generating evidence for guidelines for the management of tooth wear
  • Investigating the quality of care in general dental practice
  • Charting the dental health effects of systemic diseases and the associations between dental and general health in these patients

Discoveries by this research group

  • Although material and interface factors influence secondary caries development, the most important factor is patient caries risk.
  • Severe tooth wear is often not or only slowly progressive, and monitoring is often an option.

Several discoveries were made by this research group:
  • Although material and interface factors influence secondary caries development, the most important factor is patient caries risk.
  • Severe tooth wear is often not or only slowly progressive, and monitoring is often an option.
  • Direct resin composite restorations in severe tooth wear perform well.
  • Restoration performance in general dental practice is influenced not only by practice factors, but also strongly by patient and tooth factors.
