ARTH 1103 Survey of Art History

A History of Art and Architecture from the Prehistoric Era to the Present

RESD Complete Dentures I

RESD Complete Dentures I

Complete Denture I is an introduction to basic techniques of full denture construction. This course will include anatomical terminology as it relates to full denture construction, fabricating of custom impression trays, constructing baseplates and occlusal rims, articulating casts, set-up of maxillary and mandibular opposing wax trial dentures using anatomical artificial teeth, festooning and contouring of full wax trial denture bases.

RESD 1115 Fixed Prosthodontics I

RESD 1115 Fixed Prosthodontics I

An introduction to the theory and practice of fabricating fixed prostheses including the construction of casts and dies, identifying margins, trimming, ditching, and articulation. Creation of provisional, composite resin and full metal coverage restorations including inlay/onlay, full anterior and posterior crown. Development of wax patterns for provisional restoration, as well as for full metal coverage, inlay and crown. Development of functional occlusal relationships, spruing, investing, burnout, casting, finishing and polishing of single unit restorations. This course is a hybrid/ partially online course with lecture part being held 50% online and 50% in class. This course meets the standards of a WI (Writing Intensive) course as specified by CUNY. NYCCT requires all associate degree students to pass two WI courses (one in the core curriculum and one in the major), and all baccalaureate degree students to pass four WI courses (two in the core curriculum and two in the major, with two of these passes prior to the completion of 45 credits).

My Projects

Occlusal Rims Maxillary and Mandibular models

Occlusal Rims Maxillary and Mandibular models

The occlusal rims we made in Professor Cuyas class was made with baseplate wax. The occlusal rims purpose is to create the space where the natural teeth once was. First make the record bases, My maxillary record base was made out of shellac material and my mandible out of light cure material. I placed the shellac material on the maxillary, I had to heat up the shellac using use the Bunsen burner and press down, not stretch the material on it to get the anatomical features. For my mandible we had to use light cure. The material was very soft and had to be molded quick because it would harden if left out under the light. We used this special curing machine for 6 minutes. 5 minutes facing up while it was on the model and 1 minute facing down while it was off the model. I had to trim the edges of my light cure material because it was too sharp and couldn’t go into the patients mouth because it would cut them. I then went on to making the occlusal rims. We used a special wax called baseplate, we folded the wax 3 times in half while heating it so it would not crack. I than began stretching it out a bit. After that i placed the baseplate wax on the maximally cast, i had to place it on the residual ridge and make sure it was lined up correctly, i did the same exact steps for my mandibular. After we placed the occlusal rims we had to cut them and melt them down to its set measurements. The maxillary rim has an anterior height of 22mm and a posterior height of 18mm. The anterior width should be 6-8mm and the posterior width should 8-10mm. For the mandible rim, the anterior and posterior height should be 18mm all around. The anterior and posterior width should be the same as the maxillary width.
