Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Dentistry
  • Internal medicine
  • Surgery

His main research concerns Dentistry, Implant, Dental implant, Dental prosthesis and Retrospective cohort study. His Dentistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Survival rate, Orthodontics, Complication and Confidence interval. His research in Implant intersects with topics in Prospective cohort study and Dental Plaque Index.

His Dental implant study combines topics in areas such as Periodontitis, Osteotome and Alveolar process. His research integrates issues of Sinus, Dental porcelain, Maxillary sinus and Abutment in his study of Dental prosthesis. His Surgery study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Prosthodontics and Cohort.

His most cited work include:

  • A systematic review of the survival and complication rates of fixed partial dentures (FPDs) after an observation period of at least 5 years (656 citations)
  • Regeneration and enlargement of jaw bone using guided tissue regeneration (530 citations)
  • Comparison of survival and complication rates of tooth-supported fixed dental prostheses (FDPs) and implant-supported FDPs and single crowns (SCs) (497 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Urs Brägger mainly focuses on Dentistry, Implant, Orthodontics, Radiography and Dental implant. Urs Brägger has researched Dentistry in several fields, including Soft tissue, Surgery, Retrospective cohort study and Dental prosthesis. His research in Implant tackles topics such as Clinical trial which are related to areas like Patient satisfaction.

While the research belongs to areas of Radiography, Urs Brägger spends his time largely on the problem of Dental alveolus, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Periodontal disease. His Dental implant study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Premolar, Prosthodontics, Wilcoxon signed-rank test, Osseointegration and Prosthesis. The various areas that Urs Brägger examines in his Peri-implantitis study include Dental Plaque Index and Bleeding on probing.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Dentistry (77.71%)
  • Implant (45.71%)
  • Orthodontics (25.71%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Implant (45.71%)
  • Dentistry (77.71%)
  • Orthodontics (25.71%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Implant, Dentistry, Orthodontics, Patient satisfaction and Zirconium dioxide are his primary areas of study. His Implant research incorporates elements of Premolar, Radiography and Prosthesis. In his works, Urs Brägger performs multidisciplinary study on Dentistry and Clinical performance.

His studies deal with areas such as Stereo microscope, Dental Restoration Failure and Abutment Screw as well as Orthodontics. His Zirconium dioxide research includes elements of Cubic zirconia, Glass-ceramic, Ceramic and Surface finish. His study on Implant supported is often connected to Optical scanning as part of broader study in Dental prosthesis.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • CAD/CAM implant crowns in a digital workflow: Five-year follow-up of a prospective clinical trial. (15 citations)
  • Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) of posterior single‐implant crowns using digital workflows: A randomized controlled trial with a three‐year follow‐up (10 citations)
  • Patient-reported outcome measures focusing on aesthetics of implant- and tooth-supported fixed dental prostheses: A systematic review and meta-analysis. (8 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Dentistry
  • Surgery

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Implant, Dentistry, Radiography, Patient satisfaction and Clinical trial. The concepts of his Implant study are interwoven with issues in Visual analogue scale, Statistical significance and Repeated measures design. His work deals with themes such as Reliability, Intraclass correlation, Orthodontics and Reproducibility, which intersect with Repeated measures design.

His research on Dentistry often connects related areas such as Dental Implant-Abutment Design. The study incorporates disciplines such as Premolar, Dental Abutments, Crown, Soft tissue and Dental prosthesis in addition to Radiography. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Edentulous mandible, Generalized estimating equation, Dentures and Treatment and control groups.
