Oral and maxillofacial surgery

Within the department we focus on patients with congenital anomalies. We are highly involved in the multidisciplinary care of patients with cleft and craniofacial anomalies.

About our Department

Our research

Background information

Specialists of the Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Special Dental Care and Orthodontics work in a multidisciplinary environment. With recent innovative technological tools (Computer assisted surgery) and implementation of outcome measurements (Value-based Health Care) we aim to provide the best care for our patients.

Overall aim

  • To identify risk factors for the development of airway problems in patients with complex congenital craniofacial disorders.
  • To provide short and long-term optimal treatment goals for our patients with dentofacial growth disturbances.
  • To provide the best possible outcome for the patients by implementing tools for measuring outcome and adjust the care when and where needed.
  • To identify risk factors for upper airway problems in patients with complex congenital disorders.
  • To understand the isolated and syndromic oligodontia and thus provide the best possible care.
  • To find alternative (translational) methods for regenerating bone via experimental and translational research on bone tissue engineering.
