- The unit provides students with knowledge and clinical competencies in restorative dentistry in the following modules: (1) partial direct and indirect coronal coverage; (2) full coronal indirect coverage and crowns—fixed partial dentures (FPD); and (3) removable partial dentures.
- Students are able to (1) list the indications and contraindications of partial coronal coverage; explain the biomechanics principles of design and the clinical and technical stages associated with the fabrication of direct and indirect partial coverage restorations; perform tooth preparation for partial direct and indirect coronal coverage; take a physical and optical impression for partial coronal coverage; place direct partial coronal coverage restorations and assess the quality and insertion of the partial crowns returned from the laboratories
describe the indications and contraindications of fixed partial dentures; describe the indications and contraindications of fixed partial dentures; construct and insert temporary bridges; insert dental bridges and establish a maintenance program for patients and (2) describe the clinical and technical stages involved in removable partial dentures; describe the biomechanical role of the components of removable partial dentures; discuss the mechanical and chemical properties of the metals used for removable partial dentures; perform mouth preparation; record MMR in the partially edentulous patient; design removable partial dentures; adjust and insert removable partial dentures and establish a maintenance program for patients.
- Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) complex coronal restorations clinical (Failed Component) Pass/Fail
; (2) complex coronal restorations and fixed partial dentures written examination (Failled Component); and (3) removable partial dentures written examination. Further information is available in the unit outline.
To pass this unit, a student must: (a) achieve an overall mark of 50 per cent or higher for the unit; and (b) achieve the requisite requirements(s) or a mark of 50 per cent or greater, whichever is higher and specified in the unit outline, for the complex coronal restorations clinical (Failed Component) Pass/Fail
and complex coronal restorations and fixed partial dentures written examination (Failled Component) components.
Supplementary assessment is available for students currently enrolled in the unit who obtain a mark of 45 to 49 overall and a mark of at least 45 in any Failed Component(s).

- The availability of units in Semester 1, 2, etc. was correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change.
- All students are responsible for identifying when they need assistance to improve their academic learning, research, English language and numeracy skills; seeking out the services and resources available to help them; and applying what they learn. Students are encouraged to register for free online support through GETSmart; to help themselves to the extensive range of resources on UWA's STUDYSmarter website; and to participate in WRITESmart and (ma+hs)Smart drop-ins and workshops.
- Books and other material wherever listed may be subject to change. Book lists relating to 'Preliminary reading', 'Recommended reading' and 'Textbooks' are, in most cases, available at the University Co-operative Bookshop (from early January) and appropriate administrative offices for students to consult. Where texts are listed in the unit description above, an asterisk (*) indicates that the book is available in paperback.
