Clinical Applications in Digital DentistrySenior Electives

Course Description
Dental materials have been introduced that have moved from the conventional fabrication of dental restorations to restorations fabricated by computer-assisted design and machining. This senior elective will introduce the principles of preparation, design, and material selection for these restorations as well as discussing the digital acquisition of teeth prepared for restorations fabricated in the dental laboratory. In addition to the didactic curriculum and a series of simulation exercises, students are encouraged to work with a CEREC CAD/CAM and LAVA COS acquisition unit in fabricating restorations for their comprehensive care patients.
