With insight leadership, professional staff and sophisticated equipment, the department focuses on not only the clinical application of implant restoration with all kinds of innovative approaches but also the basic research on biological and biomechanical mechanism of osseointegrated dental implant. In the aspect of implant related basic research, funds have been invested into a wide range of research field including osseoperception of dental implant, platelet rich fibrin and platelet rich plasma in bone regeneration, bio-molecular mechanism of platform switching, nano technique in implant surface modification. In addition, the department also possessed of an implant technician lab, which is equipped with sophisticated facilities like KAVA and Procera CAD/CAM machine, electrospark erosion furnace, rapid prototype 3D printer. The technician lab related studies also constitute the entire research work.
