Description

Strives to introduce students to various aspects of basic Pediatric Dentistry. Consists of a series of lectures, laboratory exercises, and a visit to a pre-kindergarten classroom. Develops skills required for clinical diagnosis and restorative treatment of the primary and young dentition. Pulpal therapy for primary and permanent young teeth is covered. Clinical skills and knowledge for identifying the indications and contraindications for the restoration of primary teeth using fissure sealants, resin, amalgam, and full coverage is explored. Students will gain knowledge of the development, morphology, and eruption of the dentition. Differences between the permanent and primary dentition and how these apply to restoration procedures are dealt with. A basic knowledge of space maintenance and basic management skills are introduced.
