MSc Specialist Practice of Restorative and Aesthetic Dentistry

The MSc Specialist Practice of Restorative and Aesthetic Dentistry is driven by new digital technologies as dentists are now expected to provide the latest orthodontic and advanced restorative treatments such as implantology and clear aligner treatments. Optimum results in these advanced treatment modalities are reliant on the maintenance of hard and soft tissue health and a sound understanding of periodontology which is fundamental to success.

This module is designed to develop an evidence-based approach to patient selection as well as the knowledge and understanding of the theory and practice required to recognise and provide advanced level restorative and aesthetic treatment modalities and risk assessment. Its aim is to highlight potential restorative and aesthetic complications in treatment and for you to be able to develop risk assessment strategies to avoid or minimise these complications in restorative and aesthetic therapy. The practice of predominately elective treatments is one of the most challenging and complex fields of medicine as it often entails an in-depth knowledge of more than one specialty with each having a unique set of complications that need to be identified and effectively managed. These challenges can range from unacceptable aesthetics and poor treatment outcomes to irreversible surgical trauma to vital structures and potentially life-threatening haemorrhage. This module also develops a knowledge and understanding of the requirements and skills essential to the safe clinical practice and application of advanced treatment modalities and the challenge of long term maintenance issues or complications. As it is not possible to prevent all complications this module also considers essential management strategies and the ethical issues of informed consent and managment of patient expectations.
