Dental Prosthesis Technology
Our country too, has come to realize that the dentist and the technician are a team in the manufacturing of the prosthesis. The latest regulations issued have hindered the dental technicians without a diploma from working and opening their laboratories. Therefore, there is a big need for the graduates of the Vocational School at laboratories. The students who prefer this program are therefore equipped with vocational, theoretical and practical training and education in the field during their two-year training. The graduates of the program are entitled as ‘Dental Prosthesis Technician’. Dental prosthesis technicians prepare a model according to the mouth dimensions taken by the dentist. Then they shape the fixed and mobile prosthesis on the models, reproduce them through casting, and give them an aesthetic appearance through levelling and polishing to make them fit for use in the mouth. They also repair the broken or cracking prosthesis and prepare the mobile orthodontic apparatus planned by the dentist during the treatment process.
