Attività scientifica

La Clinica Sidoti & Tartaglia non si occupa solo della cura dei denti, ma pratica anche una amplia attività di ricerca scientifica, per il perfezionamento delle tecniche medico-odontoiatriche, per dare il miglior apporto possibile alla scienza medica internazionale e migliorare la salute dentale di tutti i suoi Pazienti. La Clinica collabora attivamente da anni con diversi ricercatori di importanti università in Italia, in Europa, negli Stati Uniti d’America, nel continente sudamericano e in India. I nostri Medici-odontoiatri e tutti gli altri membri dello staff della Clinica seguono ciclicamente corsi di aggiornamento tenuti da noi per rimanere sempre al passo con le scoperte scientifiche e con i nuovi strumenti tecnologici che la Clinica offre ai propri Pazienti.

L’attività di ricerca scientifica si esplica nell’ambito dell’anatomia funzionale dell’apparato stomatognatico e delle sue applicazioni cliniche.

Le ricerche riguardano in particolare l’analisi quantitativa delle implicazioni funzionali della morfologia cranio-cervico-facciale in soggetti normali ed in Pazienti.

I campi scientifici che ci vedono attivi

 

  • Valutazioni anatomofunzionali della dinamica masticatoria, con ricostruzione tramite modelli matematici del tracciato masticatorio in soggetti normali e con diverse alterazioni dell’occlusione.
  • Valutazioni anatomofunzionali della faccia: analisi morfologica quantitativa dello scheletro, dei tessuti molli, dell’attività dei muscoli masticatori, dei tracciati del movimento mandibolare.
  • Analisi morfometrica e ricostruzione matematica della morfologia craniofacciale da immagini radiografiche, fotografiche, optoelettroniche ed elettromagnetiche nell’adulto e nel bambino. Definizione di un modello matematico-geometrico della faccia per la definizione di valori di normalità, ed il calcolo del volume facciale.
  • Approccio matematico alla definizione di parametri estetici nell’adulto e nel bambino.
  • Valutazione di protocolli sperimentali per l’analisi elettromiografica e elettrochinesiografica. Definizione dei valori di riferimento nella popolazione sana (posizioni di riferimento, movimenti mandibolari, attività e asimmetria dei muscoli masticatori), ed applicazioni clinica in implantoprotesi, ortodonzia e disfunzioni craniomandibolari.
  • Studio delle caratteristiche morfologiche quantitative bi- e tridimensionali delle arcate alveolodentarie e del palato in soggetti in dentizione permanente, mista e decidua: effetto dell’età, del sesso, dell’etnia e del trattamento.
  • Studio integrato longitudinale e trasversale dell’accrescimento craniofacciale in bambini normali (valutazioni della morfologia facciale e della postura di testa e tronco, elettromiografia dei muscoli masticatori, elettrochinesiografia mandibolare).
  • Trial clinici controllati di materiali e soluzioni riabilitative innovative.
