DENT 3104 - CLINICAL PROSTHODONTICS I

[261 Credits]
In this course, the student will learn to diagnose and to increase proficiency in the design, fabrication, and follow-up of complete dentures, removable partial dentures, immediate dentures, and overdentures. Through clinical experience, the student will apply the knowledge and skills gained in the prosthodontic preclinical course. Patient treatment and understanding allow the student to learn how to earn patient trust and cooperation. This course will also allow the student to gain clinical experience in the discipline of fixed prosthodontics. The student will treat patients requiring single crowns and fixed partial dentures. Patient treatment will allow the student to apply the knowledge and skills gained in the preclinical courses while the student is closely supervised in a clinical setting. The role of fixed prosthodontics, as it relates to other disciplines and total patient care, will be emphasized through detailed treatment plans that encompass all aspects of restorative dentistry. Close cooperation with the removable clinical course is required to facilitate the construction of removable-partial-denture abutment crowns. (Department of Prosthodontics)
