This unit introduces key topics in oral anatomy, which will enable you to begin preclinical training in term 2, and will form the foundations for clinical practice. In the first half of this unit you will study morphology of teeth, sequence of eruption and basic occlusion. The study of distinct features and traits of teeth will enable you to identify and examine teeth, as well as develop an awareness of root morphology required for primary tooth extractions and periodontal treatment for the adult dentition. The study of the sequence of eruption and exfoliation will develop your understanding of the changes with age from infancy to adulthood. This knowledge and understanding will also enable you to predict changes in the dentition with age and identify abnormalities in the eruption sequence. The study of dental morphology and occlusion will provide you with an understanding of tooth shape and function that applies to the restoration of natural tooth form. The second half of this unit will introduce you to anatomy of the head and neck, including surface anatomy, bones, muscles, blood vessels, nerves and lymphatics. Applications of this knowledge, in patient examination and local anaesthesia, will be developed further in ORAL11005 Oral Anatomy 2 in term 2.

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).
Each 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).
