This course builds in the preceding principles and techniques that involve
the new developments in caries removal and a number of cutting
modalities(Micro-preparation and fissurotomy burs,Sonic tooth
preparation,Air abrasion, Lasers and Chemomechanical methods) in
Restoration of teeth with broken down cusps with dentin pins, factors that
may determine the number of pins,types of pins, anterior and posterior
pin selection, placement factors of pins,pin problems and remedies are
also taught in this course.
Causes of tooth discoloration, vital and nonvital bleaching techniques
Enamel,dentin,cement structure,Basic concepts of adhesion, Clinical
factors that affect adhesion, Types of composite resins and new
developments in composite resins, C factor,factors that affect shrinkage
stresses in composites,multilayer techniques of composites
Important fundamentals are stressed on the professional caries and
periodontitis prophylaxis, the effectiveness of fluoride in
preventing/arresting caries which is becoming more and more important
for preservation of the teeth in adults.
This course includes the profound transformation in appearance that is
provided by cosmetic dental treatments such as composite resin
restorations andlaminate veneers. Types and preparation methods of
inlays are also taught in this course.
Etiology and treatment of dentine hypersensitivity,importance and
treatment of non-carious cervical lesions
This course includes the restoration of teeth with combined
composite – amalgam, composite – resin modifiedglass ionomer
cement-restorations in posterior teeth
Types of lasers ,hard-tissue lasers, Nd:YAG to achieve a clear
operative area by removal of redundant tissue,Argon curing laser
to effectively cure a sandwich technique of glass ionomer and
composite resin restoration,laser-assisted restorative dentistry are
taught in this course.
The detective and diagnostic methods of secondary caries including
the etiology and histopathology of secondary caries,the relationship
between microleakage and secondary caries, as well as the
cariostatic effects of various restorative materials the relationship
and the preventive techniques
The theory and understanding of the caries process, types of caries
prediction tests,the active case selecting ability of the tests for
interpreting the possible occurrence of caries in individuals in the
attempt to improve the prevention program
The basicknowledge necessary to learn the skill of polishing
amalgam and composite restorations for polishing both the occlusal
and interproximal surfaces
Advantages and disadvantages of posterior composite resins,
several steps involved in the application of a posterior composite
filling,posteriorcomposite resin failures and causes
Caries lesion clinical characteristics, such as color, depth and
texture and the histological severity of cementum, dentin and
pulpal involvement, different zones in progressing caries
lesions,understanding caries-like formation in root caries at specific
pH‘s and types of enzymes involved in the process are stressed in
The causes of post operative pain following various operative
procedures is taught. This course also provides evidence-based
and procedure-specific recommendations and clinical decision
support for the management of postoperative pain.
Types of dental anomaliescaused by hereditary and environmental
factors and their treatment in permanent dentition.
Advantages and disadvantages and the use of the air abrasion
systemthat allows painless, anesthetic-free treatment of cavity
preparationseliminating the noise, heat, smell and vibration of the
Ryge (USPHS) evaluation criteria includingcolor match, cavosurface
marginal discoloration, anatomic form, marginal adaptation,surface
texture, postoperative sensitivity, proximal
contact, occlusal contacts, fracturefor predicting in vivo
performance of dental restorations and in vitro assessment
methods for the evaluation of dental restorative materials are
taught in this course.
Topics include mechanisms of bacteriel antigens causing classical
inflammatory response of the pulp and the role of immunology in
this response,regulation of lymphocyte development and
lymphocyte activation, mechanisms of cell-mediated killing of
infected and neoplastic cells, whole organism immune response to
infection, and diseases of the immune system, including allergy,
Autoimmunity, and AIDS.
Advantage and disadvantages of Fluoride releasing restorative
materials (conventional glass-ionomer, resin-modified glass
ionomers, compomer ,varnishes,composites) that can act as a
constant reservoir to supply fluoride ion to the adjacent tooth
structure for cariostatic effect.
The goal of this course is to engage the students in oral disease
prevention and health promotion to improve the oral health of the
population.Students are prepared to assume roles as educators in
public health. Program activities focus on various aspects of dental
health, including brushing and flossing, the negative effects of
tobacco on oral health, the importance of regular dental visits and
the importance of healthy eating to promote good oral health.
Çeşitli istatistiksel yöntem ve kavramlarının tanıtılması ve diş hekimliği araştırmalarında kullanımı uygulamalı olarak gösterilecektir.
This course provides the students a thorough understanding of the
literature for conducting experimental studiesdepending on the invitro
and clinical study designs. Understanding the essential
concepts in Research Methodology in producing dependable
knowledge is taught.
This course provides important strategies that every dentist should keep in mind regarding work posture which may lead to serious irreversible damages in musculoskeletal system of the body during dental practice and how dentists can protect themselves from neck,
back, or shoulder wrist problems.
