FIXED RESTORATIVE PROSTHODONTICS I

(3 + 1)

DEH233

 

Objective:

-         An introduction to the types and uses of fixed restorations and techniques of fabrication.

-         This course will employ a combination of both lecture and laboratory sessions aimed at providing the student with skills needed to operate effectively in this vital area of dental technology.

DESCRIPTION:

††††††††††† This course is an introduction to the design and fabrication of fixed appliances, such as full crowns, inlays, and onlays. The course will include appliance design requirements, the properties and safe use of the materials utilized in fixed appliance construction, methods of wax pattern fabrication, flame casting, soldering procedures and materials, and the terminology used in this branch of dentistry.

 

Pre-requisite: 220 DEH, 221 DEH. 222 DEH.

 

FIXED RESTORATIVE PROSTHODONTICS II

(3 + 1)

DEH333

 

Objective:

- Enhance the students' knowledge and hand skills by fabricating multi-unit fixed restorations according to work authorization specification

DESCRIPTION:

††††††††† This course serves as a continuation and enhancement of concepts introduced in fixed restorative prosthodontics I and the fabrication of cantilever and stress broken fixed dentures semi precision attachments, and all types of pontic designs. Introduction to ceramics, metals, dental problems and their use in the fabrication of porcelain fused to metal restorations.

Pre-requisite: 233 DEH.

 

 

 

 

FIXED RESTORATIVE PROSTHODONTICS III

(2 + 1)

DEH336

 

Objective:

- this course designed to further enhance the studentís knowledge and hand skills by fabricating multi-units fixed restorations according to work authorization specification.

DESCRIPTION:

††††††††††† A continuation and enhancement of concepts introduced in Fixed Restorative II, this course stresses advanced concepts in porcelain construction, shading, and substructure design.

Refinements in the fabrication of porcelain bonded to metal restorations, both single and multiunits will be emphasized. This course will introduce the use of intrinsic and extrinsic color modification with porcelain modifiers and stains. The course includes an introduction to the all-ceramic class of restorations. Techniques in repairing single and multi-unit fixed restorative prosthodontics

Pre-requisite: 333 DEH.

 

CLINICAL PRACTICE I

(4+ 1)

DEH482

 

Objective:

-         Provide the student with applied experiences in all phases of laboratory procedure.

-         To reinforce and extend the learning previously acquired in the program.

DESCRIPTION:

††††††††††† In service training experience serves as a transitional period between the academic setting of the schoolroom and the professional practice. Through this participation the student shall develop an appreciation of the professional community of which he is now a member.

Pre-requisite: 330 DEH, 334 DEH, 335 DEH, 336 DEH, 337 DEH.

 

 

 

 

DENTAL MATERIALS

(0 +2)

DEH223

Objective:

-         Describe the chemical, physical, and mechanical properties of restorative dental materials.

-         Understanding of the methods employed in manipulation and handling.

 

DESCRIPTION:

†††††††††† 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

 

Pre-requisite: 221 CLS, 241 Health.
