Craniomandibular function meets prosthodontics
Consensus on craniomandibular function and therapy-based learning objectives in the context of prosthetic dentistry
Peroz, Ingrid / Hugger, Alfons
Craniomandibular function is an interdisciplinary area of study designed to provide students with a good knowledge of complex physiological, pathophysiological, and medical principles as well as knowledge and proficiency in the use of articulators and in the simulation of mandibular movements. Due to changes to Germany's Dental Licensure Act (AOZ), preclinical dental technology-related course contents will be cut back in the near future. The German Society of Craniomandibular Function and Disorders (DGFDT) therefore launched a consensus-building process in collaboration with representatives of the prosthodontic faculties of German universities with the aim of elaborating a list of essential Craniomandibular Function-Based Learning Objectives (CFLO) and competence levels for preclinical and clinical dental education. The National Competence-Based Learning Objectives for Dental Education (NCLO) should be revised to include the consensus-based CFLO.
