DS2004 - Operative Dentistry 2
|Student Contribution Band:
||School of Medicine & Dentistry (pre 2015)
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.
- Develop a sound knowledge of occlusion and the construction and fitting of dentures;
- Demonstrate competency in handling materials in restorative dentistry;
- Understand the preparation and manufacturing processes for porcelain crowns, inlays
and other dental castings;
- Continue to expand the performance (within the simulated environment) of operative
dentistry procedures, including the development of skills in the restoration of deciduous
- Understand the materials and processes associated with basic removable prosthodontics.
