Crown and Bridge

Dental Assisting > COMING SOON

This module explains the dental assistant's role in understanding and performing a crown and bridge procedure.

This module provides knowledge about crown and bridge procedures. The four main stages of crown and bridge fabrication are covered here, including: preliminary impression, preparation of the tooth, final impression and/or scan, and provisional coverage. The dental assistant plays a crucial role in aiding the dentist to ensure a safe and successful procedure. This includes preparing necessary materials, ensuring all equipment is properly functioning, efficiently handing off to the dentist the needed tools to complete the procedure, and ensuring the patient's comfort throughout the procedure. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers clinical scenarios that test your ability to assist with a crown and bridge procedure. Practice the steps of the procedures online as often as you want, until you feel confident.
