Contemporary Prosthodontic Techniques

|Teaching period(s)||Semester 2|
|Offered by||School of Dentistry|

Students will have patient treatment sessions. The patients are selected by members of staff responsible for this unit and will be directly allocated to the students.
Students must not treat patients other than those assigned by their clinical supervisor(s).
Students will initially treat patients who present with the need for straightforward fixed and removable prosthodontic treatment. Following successful completion of the clinical and technical skills unit they may, later in the course, be challenged with medically compromised patients, complex treatment and re-treatments, interdisciplinary cases and those patients requiring surgical prosthodontics.
Case selection and patient load for all students will be determined by their aptitude and clinical competence.
Students should demonstrate competence in the following clinical fields:
- consultation sessions in fixed/removable prosthodontics;
- complete upper/lower dentures, including established complete dentures (conventional and template);
- partial dentures;
- direct restorations;
- indirect restoration, including crown/bridge units;
The aim of the clinical units is to give the student an understanding of the scientific basis of fixed and removable prosthodontics, with particular emphasis on current theories relevant to the diagnosis, treatment planning and clinical management of adult patients.
The principles of feedback are as follows:
- feedback should be provided in a timely manner that helps students understand (i) the marks or grades they have received for work submitted and (ii) how they might improve their performance in the future;
- feedback should be as personal as possible to the individual student to enable reflection on individual skills and performance;
- students have a responsibility to consider feedback given on their work, to seek to understand it, and to act on it.
