[28 Credits]
The course will build on the skills and techniques covered in the introduction to Complete Dentures course by introducing the second-year students to additional complete denture techniques. As health care providers we are concerned with the successful transition of the patients from natural to artificial dentition. The dentist must know and understand the different approaches to this transition and must be able to guide the patients through this difficult period. The goal of this course therefore will be to arm the dental student with techniques for fabrication of immediate complete dentures, overdentures, techniques for tissue conditioning, soft relining and repair complete dentures. Portions of this course will be devoted to case based (problem based) learning. Upon completion of this course, a student should be versed in proper accepted prosthodontic terminology.
