We are pleased to welcome you to our little world of implantology and innovation.
We are doing things completely differently and we are turning the world of implantology literally upside down.
To do so there are lots of things to to:
- To finish construction
- To finish simulations and testing
- To finish project: IdentiTI
- To start MedTech regulations and QM
Our project, funded by the BMBF, has started in August 2019 and is about to end in January 2022.
In this project we look for a complete new titanium alloy, which will hopefully improve implants durability and the overall wellbeing of the future patients.
Furthermore it enables us to do research into complete new designs of implants and abutments, as well to understand through simulations how to improve them.
So it enables us to get a big step closer to a our vision of implantology.
Latest News about:
Our project is mentioned in a local German magazine for engineers. Feel free to read it.
Have a look!
Our partners of the project:
Partner PtU TU Darmstadt
Our research partner for nanostructuring materials.
To achieve best performing metals, they need to be recasted.
Goal of that research:
- Changed grain size to get nanostructered materials.
- Improvement of its featueres and abilities regarding the use case of a dental implant: being strong and flexible
- Aspired result: longer durability, prevention and treatment of periimplantitis
To set up this process, the PtU TU Darmstadt, needs to do a lot of basic work.
Partner Institute for Materials Science @ TU Braunschweig
The Institute for Material Science of the Technische Universitaet Braunschweig is one of four partners within the IdentiTI-project.
The TU Braunschweig is Germany’s oldest university of technology (founded in 1745) and its Institute for Materials Science (IfW) has long-term research experience in the field of high-temperature and light-weight metallic materials. Titanium and titanium alloys are investigated in the Titanium Research Group for more than 15 years.
Consequently, IfW’s role within the project is the opimisation of the materials properties of different titanium alloys with conventional as well as nano-crystalline (being produced at the TU Darmstadt) microstructures for dental implant applications. This is achieved by the development of advanced heat treatment procedures together with microstructure and properties analyses.
Last but not least: we are mentioned in an article of a German newspaper about digital health and how we got help to make this vision reality.
Thank you and stay tuned for more!
