Orthodontics Clinical Training 2 - DENT5161

Year - 2018

This unit is designed to further familiarise students with the important aspects of orthodontic treatment sequencing by typodont simulations and to also learn clinical set-up and basic clinical skills. Further typodont training is carried out where students manage and observe orthodontic tooth movement prior to patient management. Wire bending sessions allow the students to hand bend a variety of structures from the wire. Basic clinical set-up sessions aim to teach students to undertake very basic procedures clinically, including bracket bonding, removable appliances placement and bonded appliance cementation.
