During the three-year study period, the student will have to:
❶ document every single clinical case
❷ treat at least 30 patients by means of prosthodontic treatment, during Year 1 and Year 2
❸ perform at least 10 complete removable dentures
❹ perform at least 10 teeth supported FPDs cases
❺ perform at least 10 cases on implants
❻ perform at least 3 full month rehabilitation
❼ perform at least 5 periodontal surgeries
❽ perform at elast 5 implant surgeries

A clinical referral tutor will be assigned to each student, which will be followed in clinical activities.

All students will be assigned a research project at the beginning of Year 1. During the entire three-year study period, all students will be assisted by a research referral tutor who will support them in reviewing the literature as well as in developing and managing the research protocol and in composing
the scientific article. The advances in the research project will be monitored by the tutor and, also, together with the Director of the program.

Objectives

The concept of Cervical Margin Relocation (CMR) consists on placing a base layer of direct resin composite to elevate supra- gingivally the proximal indirect bonded restorations. The aims of this clinical study were to evaluate 1. Bleeding on Probing (BoP) on posterior indirect restorations with one interproximal margin relocated cervically, and 2. possible correlation between depth of the interproximal margins and BoP.
