Learning Outcomes of the Curricular Unit:
The syllabus of this course was designed to transmit removable prosthodontics knowledge obeying the five key aspects of oral rehabilitation: respect for biological aspects in the rehabilitation process, building prostheses that damage as little as possible the remaining anatomical structures; emphasis to impression techniques, proper registration of occlusion and balanced and biological trace of a prosthesis; obtaining harmony between dental occlusion and temporomandibular joint ; enhancement of that long-term success that is conditioned by education and motivation of the patient.
Removable dentures types and functions
Mucosa support denture
Framework removable partial denture (RPD)
Prophylactic denture
Removable denture (RD) functions and current concepts
Partially edentulous arch classification
Components of a Removable Partial Dentures (RPD)
Basics principals of RPD mechanics
Biologic concepts related to RPD design
Surveyor and path of RPD insertion
RPD Mouth Preparation
Distal extension denture base- design
Intermaxillary registration and mounting casts in articulator in RPD
Restoring a balanced occlusion in a partially edentulous patient
Intermaxillary registration and mounting casts in articulator in Complete Denture
Demonstration of the Syllabus Coherence with the Curricular Unit's Objectives:
Respect for the biological rehabilitation process and construction of dentures that damage as little as possible the remaining anatomical structures are related to the knowledge of the types of prosthesis, the edentulous arch and design indications in each of the clinical situations shown. The use of instruments such as the surveyor for the systematic prosthetic rehabilitation and perfect knowledge of a balanced occlusion, in rehabilitation, allow the student the knowledge necessary for the start of clinical work in the field of oral rehabilitation with removable dentures.
Teaching Methodologies (Including Evaluation):
Theoretical teaching (T), complemented by laboratory practice (LP) and supported by tutorial teaching (TT) and other (O), additional tasks.
The final grade of this curricular unit (CU) results from the weighting of 80% for the theoretical contents taught in classes defined as T and 20% for the contents taught in LP classes and will be carried out in accordance with the Pedagogical Regulation (academic regulations). In order to pass the CU, the student must achieve the pedagogical goals defined for each of the typologies. In order for the student to be approved for the CU, he/she must demonstrate that he/she has reached these defined goals, obtaining a minimum classification of 10 values in each of the typologies. The contents taught in the practical component can only be evaluated in the continuous evaluation model in accordance with the academic regulations.
Demonstration of the Coherence between the Teaching Methodologies and the Learning Outcomes:
The theoretical component allows the acquisition of the basic fundamentals for the prosthetic planning and at the same time allows the student, in the laboratory component; perform laboratory steps involved in denture processing. This way and based on the theoretical foundations, obtaining knowledge is acquired in a systematic and integrated manner, with these fundamental aspects of planning for rehabilitation.
