Osseo-disintegration of endosseous implants with biophysical methods (ODIN)

  Project logo Copyright: © ODIN

Implants can irreversibly grow in human bone (osseointegration). For removal implants must be milled out, which causes significant bone defects. The aim of this joint research project is a atraumatic, intentional osseo-disintegration. For this purpose, a controlled, thermal impulse is applied as homogeneously as possible to the implant-bone interface in order to reverse the osseointegration. As a heat source, different methods should be tested to ensure optimal process control.
