– Independent clinical research activity on Copper- Zinc-Oxy-Phosphate Cements, since 2007. Several articles & lectures about MID procedures, combined with Cu-ZOP in Switzerland,

– USA – GNYDM 2011, has held numerous continuing education courses in AFRICA:

– Togo – GADEF  2011, Benin – GADEF 2012, Senegal – IDEA 2015 , Tanzania – 2016,  Maroc –  FDI 2017.

– Focus on translational research for pulp-vitality preservation and remineralisation.

Antibacterial and Remineralizing Cu-ZOP Cement Base Material for Vitality Preservation

15 permanent teeth, presenting deep caries lesions and some extreme deep caries, were restored between 2007 and 2012, with selective caries excavation, avoiding anesthetics and a self-established unconventional protocol.

The obtained results and performances of Zinc-Oxy-Phosphate with Copper-salts base material, as “slow ion delivering device”, for long-lasting protection and effective remineralisation, should encourage future materials development and ultra-conservative approaches.
