The aim of oral restoration is to restore the oral health, the function and aesthetics of the patient. To restore the appearance of the smile, a high level of training in the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal tissue is required.
This subject establishes the theoretical and practical concepts in the planning and execution of interdisciplinary cases of prosthesis, oral and maxillofacial surgery and periodontics.
This subject is a continuation of Oral Surgery, Rehabilitation and Periodontology I, and examines in greater depth the more complex aspects of soft tissue grafts, bone regeneration and implants.
Knowledge of oral anatomy and pathophysiology of oral diseases.
Knowledge of surgical techniques related to dental therapeutics and dental prosthetics.
Know how to diagnose the need for soft tissue grafts and bone regenerations for the successful completion of prosthetic treatment in teeth and implants.
Be able to put into practice the different treatment options of rehabilitation on implants.
Have the necessary tools to deal with the possible complications in implant rehabilitations.
- CB6 - Students should have and understand knowledge that provides the basis for or opportunity to be original in terms of the development and application of ideas, often within a research context.
- CB7 - Students should know how to apply the knowledge they have acquired and be able to resolve problems in new or little known environments within a broader (or multidiciplinary) context, related to their area of study.
- CB8 - Students should be able to incorporate knowledge and tackle the complexity of making judgements based on information which, being incomplete or limited, includes reflections on the social and ethical responsibility linked to the application of their knowledge and judgement
- CE1 - Students should be able to undertake a proper analysis and an extraoral diagnosis, and underline the aesthetic and functional aspects of the teeth and the soft areas of the lower part of the face as well as a analysis and clinical and lab-based diagnosis, using diagnostic and therapeutic wax models, in order to rehabilitate dental occlusion with good functional and aesthetic balance, while taking into account multidisciplinary factors related to the masticating apparatus.
- CE2 - Students should be able to work as a clinical professional and/or researcher in the field of aesthetic restorative dentistry, and act as a real specialist or expert in the material; as well as know how to diagnose, treat, prevent and research oral disorders and have updated knowledge of the diagnostic and treatment-related advances which continue to arise throughout their professional life.
- CE3 - To undertake the selective drilling of teeth to balance the jaw and dental occlusion, as well as make splints for articular and occlusal protection in cases where there is a pathology that requires this.
- CE5 - To be able to give public presentations on your own clinical cases based on the scientific literature, and correctly use the scientific terminology related to temporomandibular dysfunction and aesthetic restorative dentistry.
- CE9 - To recognise and interpret images and specialised diagnostic techniques that are significant in research, as well as know how to apply bioinformatic tools and new technologies to the fields of prosthetic and restorative dentistry and dental implants.
- CG1 - To have the ability to communicate with patients with the aim of explaining, based on scientific criteria but in accessible language, their diagnosis, treatment plan and prognosis, in the case of pathologies that tend to be either advanced or multidisciplinary in nature.
- CG2 - To be autonomous in terms of obtaining a patient's anamnesis and oral explorations in patients with pathologies that might be either advanced or multidisciplinary in nature; and fill in their medical record and other clinical paperwork using scientific language and terminology that is suited to an aesthetic restorative dentistry professional.
- CG3 - To know how to apply the protocols established in the University Dental Clinic in relation to diagnosis, complementary explorations and treatment for patients, as well as treatment plans, taking into account the fact that the patients being addressed have pathologies that are either advanced or multidisciplinary in nature.
The student can diagnose soft tissue grafts and bone regenerations required for the successful completion of prosthetic treatment in teeth and implants

The student has the knowledge needed to deal with the possible complications in implant rehabilitations.
1. Complications in implant-prosthesis.
2. Maintenance of implants.
3. Periodontal plastic surgery on teeth and implants.
4. Bone regenerative surgery on teeth, jaw and atrophic jaw and implants
Teaching and learning activities
Clinical case studies in seminars
Resolution of clinical cases
Learning focused on pathologies
Evaluation systems and criteria
This subject will be assessed through various methods, and the majority will be based on continuous assessment during the two years.
The seminars (SEM) will be evaluated through the student’s direct, individual participation. They will take into account their capacity for synthesis and problem-solving attitude when difficulties arise. The assessment methodology will be through review of scientific articles that will be presented by the student and corrected by the teacher/s in charge of the activity. These reviews must be presented on computer files (such as Microsoft Office or PowerPoint Presentation). Written test (exams) will be done to follow up the knowledge acquired through the seminars.
• Direct and personal participation 15%
• Acquisition of clinical, technical and surgical knowledge 40%
• Scientific knowledge of the patient's pathology 30%
• Dentist-patient communication 15%
