The drive for development of new and novel oral biomaterials has never been more important with many people using oral biomaterials today and seeing their benefits in restoring and improving their oral health for a more enjoyable lifestyle. The unique properties of biomaterials such as titanium (Ti), zirconia (ZrO2) and various polymeric materials have made them materials of choice in oral health: dental implants, oral and maxillofacial surgery, and even regenerative medicine. Oral biomaterials research today is an exciting and intensive multidisciplinary area that encompasses contributions from a wide range of fields from professional dentistry to biology, chemistry, physics, material science, and engineering. Materials in Oral Health is a FREE 4-week course open to all interested learners. In the course, you will learn about the special properties and benefits of biomaterials including, titanium and titanium alloys, zirconia and other alloys, ceramics, and modern composites. You will gain insights of the practical use of these biomaterials in different aspects of dentistry and clinical implications. You will realize how contemporary dentistry is about unifying synthetic materials to living tooth and bone tissues. You will get in touch with the crucial roles of digital dentistry and learn about CAD/CAM technology in crown fabrication, 3D printing and digital orthodontics. And lastly, you will be introduced to procedures and testing methods used to test significant mechanical properties of biomaterials in the research laboratory. We cordially invite those of you who wish to make a difference in tomorrow’s dental materials and oral health development to join us in the 4-week journey in Materials in Oral Health. You can get recognition for completion of the course by obtaining a Course Certificate. You can refer to details on: https://learner.coursera.help/hc/en-us/articles/208280196...

  • The major aim of the course is to help the students:

    LEARN about important biomaterials used in oral health and their unique properties and use, UNDERSTAND the selection and clinical implications and potentials of biomaterials and technology used in dentistry, and APPLY the related knowledge, experience, challenges, and expertise in studies and research in oral biomaterials and CREATE SYNERGY in ever growing needs and contribution to tomorrow’s dentistry.

  • The MOOC includes 4 modules and runs over a period of 4 weeks.

    You can refer to the Learning objectives page.

    Week 1 reveals the unique properties and clinical implications of the much sort-after titanium and various ceramics and discusses the importance of surface treatments and modifications.

    Week 2 discusses the characteristics of modern resin composites, other polymeric materials, and dental cements, looking into adhesion strength and the role of dentin bonding agents.

    Week 3 explores present day and future dentistry: the increasingly popular role of digital dentistry in practice today, including CAD/CAM, crown fabrication, 3D printing and orthodontics.

    Week 4 shows major research laboratory tests for testing specific mechanical properties, adhesion strength, as well as, spectroscopic techniques used in the analysis and charaacterization of biomaterials.

  • Each Weekly Module is divided into 3 to 4 Lessons, depending on the content area and topics. Each Module includes Learning Objectives, Further Reading materials for the week and Discussion Prompt questions in the discussion forum.

    Each individual Lesson in the Weekly Module contains 3 to 4 video lecture videos and an automated assessment of Multiple Choice questions for knowledge consolidation.

  • You can earn official recognition for the course you take on Coursera with a Course Certificate for completing and passing course assignments and meeting the assessment standards. Please refer to details on: https://learner.coursera.help/hc/en-us/articles/208280196
