This unit of study aims to increase the students' understanding of the prosthetic rehabilitation of patients with complete, partial or immediate dentures, including implant over-dentures, denture maintenance and repair; provision of traditional fixed prosthodontics with exposure to CAD CAM technology, (onlays, crowns, bridges) and implants. Students will undertake treatment and maintenance of patients with moderate to severe periodontitis (observation of periodental surgery), peri-implantitis. Students are required to provide a complete course of periodontal care and thus learn to evaluate the prognosis of periodontally involved teeth. The unit further aims to develop an understanding of behaviour management and pain control for paediatric patients; the provision of care for paediatric patients recognising and managing developmental anomalies. Students also may treat medically compromised children. Students will gain an understanding of the knowledge and scope of orthodontics carried out by general practitioners as well as the diagnosis and treatment of obstructive sleep apnoea.
