The removable partial denture (RPD) is one of the treatment alternatives for restoring partially edentulous patients to optimum health and preserving the remaining dentition. The Introduction to Complete Dentures and Special Techniques courses prepare the dental student with the prerequisite laboratory skills and clinical concepts for learning how to treat the partially edentulous patient. The objective is for the student to comprehend the biomechanics of RPDs and therefore have the bases for diagnosing, designing, and treatment planning any permutation of partial edentulism. At the conclusion of the course, the students will also know how to communicate with and write work authorization forms for their laboratory technician colleagues.
