This course is the first course in Removable Prosthodontics.  It consists of didactic and practical components that cover both complete and removable partial dentures. The first half of the year is devoted to the complete denture, while the second half is devoted for removable partial dentures. The practical component (two practical sessions weekly) covers the technical aspect of complete denture construction from the start to finish in the first half of the year and the technical aspect of removable partial denture construction in the second half of the year. During the course various exercises that simulate the clinical treatment of the patient are also employed.  The course in general is designed to prepare the student to understand the biological, mechanical as well as the aesthetic aspect of complete and partial denture treatment.
