Variety of Dental Research Projects

Several undergraduate dissertation projects have been undertaken in the final year of Dental Technology focusing on a broad range of dissertation types, namely Experimental Research Project, Survey Research Project and Literature-Based Research Project.

Research output from Dental Technology Dissertation projects 2019 provided excellent academic development for our final year undergraduates. A selection of these projects are listed below:

Experimental Research Projects

• Mouthguard polymer reinforcement to increase energy absorption in contact sports

• Comparison of bond strength between different surface treatments on the metal-ceramic bond

• The influence of different manufacturing techniques on the flexural strength of dental composites

• The effects of commonly consumed beverage on the flexural strength of heat-cure acrylic

Survey Research Projects

• The effect of unis of dental activity (UDA) on dental appliance production and public health

• Musculoskeletal disorders in Dental Technicians

• The Current use of 3D computer technology in oral and maxillofacial laboratories in hospitals

• Assessing the failure rates of removable partial dentures from a laboratory perspective in dental laboratories in England

Literature-Based Research Projects

• A comparison between written and digital communication and the effect on the dental appliances constructed

• Impact of orthodontic treatment approach on the oral hygiene of adolescents

• Factors affecting the bond strength between denture bases and acrylic teeth

• A comparison between Polyetheretherketone and Co-Cr partial dentures concerning denture success

• Significant experimental research results have been achieved this year, in an attempt to promote University interdepartmental collaborative undergraduate research. Dental ceramics cytotoxicity research was undertaken in collaboration with the Biomedical Engineering Department. Undergraduate students (as part of their Dissertation Research Project) and staff from both departments collaborated in this project.

The project was funded by the University’s Jenkinson awards.
