Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Research Unit

Welcome to Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Research Unit

Our focus is the clinical research to optimize the quality of the treatment as well as patient satisfaction.

We attempt to improve the surgical precision and stability in the treatment with orthognathic corrective jaw surgery and reconstructions after major trauma to the face. We are especially focused on 3D-simulation of jaw correction, development and adaptation of measurement techniques, as well as 3D-X-ray-analysis on whether the desired surgical or non-surgical results were achieved.

We aim to establish a broad research collaboration with neighboring specialists such as Plastic Surgery, and Ear-, Nose-, and Throat Surgery and we already have a well established collaboration with Southern Respiration Center on the treatment of complex sleep apnea patients.

We are part of the new SDCO where the focus will be on the importance of dental infection and sleep apnea for the optimal treatment of the patients with diabetes.
