The area of dentistry concerned with the replacement or restoration of teeth by artificial substitutes that are not readily removable. Tooth borne or implant-borne substrate. Detailed occlusal concepts. Treatment planning for reconstruction utilizing diagnostic techniques and articulators.
Topics may include:
- Single unit restorations
The diagnosing the need and designing the restoration for single units whether on teeth or implant
- Multi-unit restorations
The diagnosis and construction design for multi-unit restorations whether on teeth or implants
- Full mouth reconstruction

It is one unit screw retained and only retrievable by a dentist for repair or maintenance. Considered permanent but retrievable.
- Emerging concepts, techniques, therapies and technology
New technology in advancing fixed prosthodontics.
