Course description and goals

Students will learn basic biomedical and technological facts and clinical skills in removable prosthodontics, i.e. in conventional complete denture or implant-supported denture manufacture (treatment) of completely edentulous patients. They learn facts about denture bearing area including both, supporting soft and hard oral tissues. This program encourages students capabilities, through analysis of the current situation and selection of the best possible removable prosthodontic treatment, based on an interdisciplinary approach towards each individual clinical case, achieve a basic orientation in the prophylaxis and treatment of the stomatognathic system, through which the maintenance and establishment of oral health of people of different generations and cultures in relation of their socioeconomic status is possible.

The curriculum for Removable Prosthodontics I prepares students to learn:
the importance or oral health and the need for implementing removable prosthodontic treatment based on epidemiological studies

recognize nonphysiological and pathological conditions of the stomatognathic system

understand the functional anatomy and physiology of a completely edentulous jaws

implement diagnostic procedures and laboratory tests relevant for removable prosthodontic treatment

understand the effect of chosen removable prosthodontic treatment on the stomatognathic system and patient health

understand and correlate the laboratory and clinical protocols for removable prosthodontic treatment

define materials and instruments, as well as, laboratory and clinical equipment and devices used in denture manufacture

conduct removable prosthodonitc treatment to improve oral health within a satisfying time period

supplement knowledge with literary data and apply them in daily work.

The curriculum for Removable Prosthodontics I is concentrated into six interrelated modules:

Materials and processing technology and their implementation in the laboratory fabrication of complete dentures,

Physiology of the masticatory system which, in addition to knowledge about the normal function (includes knowledge pertaining to the diagnosis and treatment of temporomandibular disorders with removable prosthesis)

The biomechanics of the masticatory system and the effect removable prosthodontics have

Conventional removable prosthodontics treatment and rehabilitation of the masticatory system

Implant prosthetics treatment of completely edentulous jaws

Clinical-epidemiological research on the possibility of conducting removable prosthodontics treatment using conventional methods.

The knowledge and skills for diagnostic, therapeutic and laboratory procedures are developed during lectures and clinical exercises in small groups of students under the guidance of teachers and assistants of the Department of Removable Prosthodontics. The course lasts two semesters.

In the theoretical portion of this course, LCD and video projections of the clinical and laboratory work are used. During clinical practice, the casuistry of removable prosthodontics treatment is pursued through working on patients.

Criteria for taking the course is done exam in Preclinical and laboratory removable prosthodontics


The final exam from Removable Prosthodontics I consists of a oral exam. Throughout the course, students will be tested on their theoretical knowledge through small colloquiums before taking part in clinical practice.
