Intended Learning Outcomes

01. Devise a series of steps involving examination, radiography and diagnostic skills to enable fixed prosthodontics to be incorporated into comprehensive treatment planning.
02. Rationalise, and apply, the principles of tooth preparation for indirect restorations, both full and partial coverage.
03. Explain the principles underlying the management of soft tissue when taking impressions for fixed prosthodontics.
04. Interpret the rationale for the selection of materials used in fixed prosthodontics, particularly alloys, ceramics, impression materials, luting agents and provisionals.
05. Discuss the concepts of occlusion and occlusal form and how they relate to diagnosis and treatment planning.
06. Demonstrate knowledge of the design and laboratory procedures used in the production of crowns and bridges and how we, as clinicians, impact on their outcome.
07. Appraise, criticise or justify the findings from a short literature review on a topic to be allocated in Dilemmas in Fixed Prosthodontics.
