Course Objectives Students will be introduced to the following: Basic principles of prosthetic dentistry Identifying patients problems and rendering a diagnosis requires insight to a patients social and medico dental background. Students are introduced to the clinical and theoretical


aspects of removable prosthodontics which involves the examination, diagnosis, treatment planning, construction of the removable prostheses and maintenance of the hard and soft tissues. Concepts involved in the design and production of complete & partial dentures Health and safety in the clinics Communication with the dental laboratory

Teaching & Learning Methods Duration: 14 weeks Lectures: 13 hours, 1 hour per week ( including 1hour midterm exam) Clinical : 3- hours clinic/week Laboratory: students should do the laboratory work for one complete denture and one acrylic partial denture. This will be supervised by trained technicians. Seminars: 4-5 selected topics will be covered in seminar-based lectures in the 2nd term Learning Outcomes: Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to Related Objective(s) Reference Successful completion of the theoretical part of this course should lead to the following learning outcomes: This introductory lecture includes review of the clinical and laboratory procedures involved in construction of complete dentures and provisional RPDs as well as description of the course outlines and emphasizing on guidelines and rules to be followed during lectures, attendance, and behavior. The lecture will discuss prosthodontic assessment of the edentulous patient starting with information gathering of the presenting complaints, dental history, medical history, social history, and then the extra-oral and intra-oral assessment of the patient and the assessment of the dentures. The lecture then discusses the treatment planning protocols in removable prosthodontics, factors influencing decision making, and

This lecture discusses the various schemes used in complete dentures including balanced, lingulaized, and Lecture 4 & 5 monoplane occlusion. It also discusses the several articulators available and their different classifications. This lecture discusses the various technological aspects involved in Lecture 6 acrylic partial denture construction. Emphasis will be on surveying procedures and block out methods Gain working knowledge on Lectures 7& 8 immediate dentures, copy dentures, relining and rebasing techniques. The lecture will discuss the most common reported complaints experienced by complete denture wearers as related to appearance, Lectures 9 & 10 function, comfort, speech, psychological, and other problems such as: burning mouth syndrome, denture stomatitis, allergy, TMJ disorders In addition to the exam being away 11 (Exam) of assessment, it also highlights the important points in the subject Understand the principles of Lectures 12 &13 fabricating and designing RPD Upon successful completion of the clinical part of this course, the student should gain the following skills: Concepts of clinical examinations, 1 diagnosis, treatment planning Construction of the prostheses and 2 maintenance of the hard and soft tissues Ability to survey diagnostic casts 3 and input in the design process of acrylic partial dentures 4 Ability to practice all

Additional Notes Professionalism

Professions tend to be autonomous and self-sufficient which means having a high degree of control of ones own affairs while having freedom to exercise professional judgment. As it is a trait, which can be easily enhanced, it is thus subject to self-interest and a continuous process of critical evaluation of ethics and procedure. As the students have been part of the university for some considerable time, they would be familiar with general principles about its beliefs on matters such as quality studentship within this environment. We thus expect our students to develop their professionalism even further together with a high morality. Dentistry is a profession based on such ethical codes. Gross violations of these formal codes are governed by University laws, which delineate the procedures to determine whether a violation of the code of ethics occurred and, if so, what remedies should be imposed. This does not mean the list is complete. We encourage students to abide with the more sensitive approach to this by allowing the practice of a high Morality (or proper behavior), which defines right and wrong by the

society, philosophy, religion, and individual conscience. Students and their instructors often make ethical choices reflexively/ But ethically sensitive situations, where time, emotions and marks are pressured, it becomes all too easy to be blind-sided by temptation. The best antidote to ethical lapses is to commit in advance to a set of ethical principles - your personal ethical code that follows or grows to it. Any difficulty or concern during the course should be passed directly to the course coordinator. The working models should be marked with the students name and university number Student ID labels are confirmed by assigned lab supervisor The Lab work should be finished during the lab sessions, not allowed to finish your work at home Completed work is handed in the assigned area in the lab Marks are returned within one week of the assignment Undelivered work will not be marked All the instruments you need should be brought as soon as possible You should leave your worktop as clean as possible Each student should set at the designated area. Names will be mounted on each bench. Cooperation and professionalism in the lab time are encouraged to facilitate your progress in the course Applicable when an acceptable and valid excuse is presented at the appropriate time. N/A Unethical. JUST regulations will be applied The work should be your own, otherwise it will marked zero It is mandatory for all lectures, clinical and laboratory sessions Each student will be assigned a seat Tardiness up to 15 minutes of the start of class/clinic/lab will be allowed. To receive course credit, a student should attend a minimum of 90% of the contact hours of the class; meaning losing only one and a half lecture. Absences from class are counted from the day the class meets officially for the first time not from when the student officially enters.


If absent from lectures, then the course coordinator will refer to related guidelines set by the university Any student who is absent on a test day, will have to demonstrate an acceptable medical or social statement explaining the illness or personal crisis as instructed by their faculty Individual instructors may arrange for a make-up test only when a written request is made to and approved by the appropriate dean. Any student who feels that he/she may need accommodation for any type of disability is strongly encouraged to contact the course coordinator who will be happy to help in any way Individual accommodations to the course plan are possible after consulting with the dean. Multiple choice questions will be computer based Written questions may include short essay, definition, enumeration and matching questions Answers will be discussed in the class All students are highly encouraged to actively participate in the class and laboratory sessions Quizzes and brain storming will be an essential part of the course. The course coordinator is always available to talk with the student when problems arise If you have any problems that require the attention of an instructor, do not wait until the problem is insurmountable If a student needs to talk with the course coordinator outside office hours, an appointment can be made Information contained in this course outline is correct at the time of publication Content of the courses is revised on an ongoing basis to ensure relevance to changing educational, employment needs The course coordinator reserves the right to add or delete material from courses and will endeavour to provide notice of changes to students as soon as possible The timetable may also be revised accommodating to holidays and unexpected holidays
