|Student Contribution Band:||Band 3|
|Administered by:||College of Medicine & Dentistry|
In this prosthodontics subject students will develop the skills to handle materials used in the manufacture of dentures, crowns and other restorative components that are constructed in the laboratory for patient use. The manufacturing process will be demonstrated for the more complex casting and crown production, but students will be expected to become skilled in the construction, processing and fitting of a full and partial denture. A detailed understanding of occlusion and dental materials will be required. Students will also re-enforce and expand their restorative skills in the simulation setting. The expanded skills will include treatment of deciduous teeth.
Satisfactory attendance is required at (pre)clinical placements. Satisfactory academic and professional standard, as described in the College Assessment Guidelines, must be achieved in order to progress
