Materials-science fundamentals, based upon metallurgy, ceramics, polymer science and surface interactions are presented as background for specific product discussions. Emphasis is placed upon laboratory processes, such as precious and non-precious metal fabrication, porcelain manipulation, denture-base polymer curing, and the proper handling of gypsum products. Time will also be spent on other restorative materials of interest to the dentist and the technician. Laboratory sessions provide experience in materials handling and manipulation and do not emphasize technique. Coordination is made with the physics, chemistry and scientific measurements.
