PDSC 824 - Biomechanics & Biomaterials

Cr Hrs: 1 (16-0-0)

Metals, polymers, and ceramics are ubiquitous throughout the various dental disciplines. Providing a high quality of oral healthcare requires basic understanding of the physical response of these materials. To stay informed and exploit contemporary and emerging insights, dental professionals must stay current with the biomaterials literature. The purpose of this course is to gain experience in the critical reading and evaluation of the biomaterials literature. Students will learn basic biomechanical and biomaterial concepts and research techniques, while practicing critical evaluations of the dental literature using selected publications relevant to dentistry and research methodology. After completion of this course, a student should be able to successfully evaluate scientific investigations of dental materials and translate this knowledge to their clinical training with the ultimate goal of improving patient treatment and care.
