About the Project
Dental enamel is a complex and highly anisotropic material with heterogeneous micro-structure. With years of use dental enamel experiences various types of loading, from impact-type to fatigue-type loading. In this project we will model the behaviour of dental enamel with respect to its strength, toughness and wear, and thus predict its response due to applied loading in different real life scenarios, bearing in mind patient specific particularities (e.g. existing micro-cracks and micro-imperfections).
Through a multi-scale approach, we will develop patient-specific models which take into account the particular microstructure of the dental enamel, allowing us to access the current state of teeth and, if needed, recommend possible dental treatment to improve the current conditions, and thus eventually, improve the quality of patient’s life.
