One of the sciences which has been introduced to the world dental community in the last three decades and its importance & extent have ever been increasing in dental sciences is "Dental Implant". In this field, a lot of effort has gone into replacing the missing or damaged teeth without altering or trimming down the neighboring teeth by using the latest technology and also by combining the advantages of specialized fields such as prosthodontics, periodontology, surgery, physiology, pathology & etc. and fortunately significant achievements have been made in this area. Therefore, in this respect and for being coordinated with the development of the other fields of dentistry and using the earning potential of desirable scientific and practical facilities available in the Faculty of Dentistry in Isfahan University of Medical Sciences and in the Research Institute for Dental Sciences of Professor TorabiNejad along with the maximum effort made by a group of faculty members and researchers in this university, "the Dental Implants Research Center" was established and began its work in winter, 2011.

The most important research fields of this center including:

1.      Doing the basic research projects relating to different systems of dental implants, marginal bone & etc.

2.       Doing the clinical research projects in the different fields of dental implants.

3.      Doing the basic & clinical research projects about the advantages of dental implants in the alveolar bone reconstruction.

4.      Doing the basic & clinical research projects about the esthetic aspects of dental implants.

5.      Doing the research projects about the efficiencies of dental implants in the reconstruction of oral and maxillofacial function.
