Multiscale design of engineered C-S-H in dentistry
ESR: Petr Dohnalik
Host: TU Wien
Start date: November 3, 2017
This project has the objective
- To engineer patient-specific mineral trioxide aggregates (= low-volume, high-value C-S-H-based products) for endodontic applications in dentistry. The targets of engineering are to provide the required in-situ sealing and optimal mechanical biocompatibility in terms of stiffness and strength, as compared to the surrounding tooth material. Success will be demonstrated by in vitro experiments.
- Month 12: Preliminary materials characterisation;
- Month 21: Multi-scale representation of mineral trioxide aggregates;
- Month 30: In vitro studies regarding strength compatibility of different mineral trioxide aggregates;
- Month 39: Multiscale model for patient-specific mineral trioxide aggregates.
- 4 months at SEPTODONT: in vitro tests of MTAs to assess strength-related biocompatibility; start month 27.
