Integrated Clinical Dentistry B1 - SDDM5316

Year - 2018

This unit of study will introduce students to the management of common denture-related problems frequently encountered in practice and includes repairs and reline procedures. More advanced rehabilitation procedures involving overdentures will also be introduced as well as the fundamental theoretical and technical framework for fixed prosthodontics. The crucial importance of the supporting soft and hard tissues will be emphasised by intensive exposure to diagnosis and management of common periodontal diseases with a focus on non-surgical periodontal therapy. This unit also aims to provide the student with the practical application of orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning of simple malocclusions and interceptive cases. The learning sessions in Paediatric Dentistry will include restorative options (including pulp therapy), medically compromised patients, syndromes and clefts, and caries.
