Fixed Prosthodontics

over Teeth and Implants Course

Fixed Prosthodontics Improvement Course
over Teeth and Implants

General objectives

It is intended that the trainees at the end will be able to diagnose, plan and execute FPP on teeth and also obtain basic training about FPP on dental implants.

Specific objectives

At the end of the training action, trainees should be able to:

  • Diagnose the various clinical situations of partially edentulous patients, using available methods for data collection and implementation of a treatment plan.

  • Demonstrate the importance of neurophysiology of the stomatognathic system, studying its maxillomandibular relationships, mandibular movements and techniques for obtaining intraoral records.

  • Use the semi-adjustable Articulators and obtain registers that promote precision assemblies.

  • Recognize the importance and influence of periodontology in the context of FPP, relating them to clinical procedures for obtaining crowns and bridges.

  • Recognize the principles governing dental preparation techniques for prosthetic purposes, as well as all materials and equipment involved in these procedures.

  • Identify how to treat with FPP teeth that have undergone endodontic treatments with the most diverse techniques of coronary reconstruction.

  • Recognize the evolution of FPP, analyzing chronologically the great technological advances that have been taking place in recent decades.

  • Identify the main systems for manufacturing crowns and bridges, as well as new materials and, in particular, those resulting from the emergence of the Cad-Cam System in dentistry.

  • Recognize the importance of provisional restorations in FPP and the various direct and indirect techniques as well as new materials.

  • Perform your work with conventional impression techniques and their related materials and digital impressions.

  • Perform your work with the laboratory technology of FPP when it comes to obtaining models and precision changers.

  • Emphasize the importance of metal alloys in the manufacture of metalloceramic FPP; study the indications, types and techniques of welding in FPP.

  • Characterize phenomena such as light, color, anatomy, dental arrangements and communications with the Dental Technician so that you can carry out FPP work with a high degree of aesthetics.

  • Identify the techniques and materials involved in the cimentation procedure for crowns and bridges.

  • Characterize the phenomenon of osseointegration and an implant system.

Dentists who wish to update their knowledge in the field of Fixed Prosthodontics.

Training Methodologies

In addition to the exposition of contents by the Trainer, audiovisual support will be used to present the theoretical sessions referring to all the chapters indicated in the Course Program.

Demonstrative practical sessions will be held, followed by active sessions (laboratory and pre-clinical), to be developed by the participants, as well as the monitoring of their clinical cases, where aspects ranging from planning to execution and maintenance will be analyzed.
For clinical classes, each participant must bring their own patient, who will first be observed by the trainer, to select the clinical cases of greatest interest.

Assessment Methodologies

Diagnostic assessment – carried out at the beginning of the course, in order to verify the trainees' prerequisites.

Formative assessment – carried out modularly in order to assess the knowledge acquired during the course, with a weight of 70% in the final grade.
Summative assessment – verifying the knowledge consolidation of the trainees at the end of the course, with a weight of 20% in the course completion grade.
