Revolutionizing dental implants: Introducing NOMAD


A confident smile can open doors and hearts worldwide. It’s a universal symbol of self-assurance and charm. Behind that smile, however, lies a silent threat for many individuals — peri-implantitis. This condition, where oral bacteria attach to dental implants, poses a risk of infection that can lead to jawbone loss and, ultimately, implant failure. Shockingly, 1 in 5 people are affected by this complication, highlighting the urgent need for innovative solutions in dental care.

Enter NOMAD.

In this video, we look at the groundbreaking work NOMAD is doing to revolutionize dental implant technology. We’re not focusing on treatment, we’re prioritizing prevention. By developing the next generation of dental implants, NOMAD aims to promote peri-implant health, increasing long-term success rates and reducing healthcare costs associated with implant complications.

Our approach? Advanced materials research lies at the heart of our mission. From pioneering novel 3D printing technologies to exploring cutting-edge nanomaterials, smart drug delivery systems, and antimicrobial surfaces, NOMAD is dedicated to developing solutions that enhance implant biocompatibility and resistance to bacterial infection.

But our efforts don’t end there. We’re also revolutionizing the way implants are tested by utilizing realistic in vitro and in vivo infection models, ensuring that our solutions undergo rigorous evaluation before reaching patients. Additionally, we are collaborating with industry professionals to pave the way for the commercialization of the NOMAD project. Through partnerships in industrial manufacturing, cost-benefit analysis and regulatory trends, we aim to meet the demands of the dental implant market.

NOMAD is more than just a project, it’s a collaboration. Our highly interdisciplinary team of experts from academia, industry, and clinical practice spans multiple European countries. With equal gender representation, we’re leveraging diverse perspectives and expertise to drive innovation forward. Supported by Horizon Europe, we’re poised to make a significant impact on dental care.

But we can’t do it alone. We invite you to join us on this journey. Together, let’s ensure that every smile lasts a lifetime.

Watch the video, get inspired, and join the revolution in dental care with NOMAD.
