The effectiveness of a layered baseplate training aid in the preclinical instruction of second-year dental students.


The effectiveness of the Cavidrill baseplate in the training of second-year dental students in cavity preparations in primary ivorine teeth was assessed. The preclinical class of 112 students was divided into four groups: Cavidrill-only group, two groups combining Cavidrill training with traditional typodont training, and a typodont-only group. The Cavidrill baseplate was found not to improve the students' performance in cavity preparation when assessed on midterm and final examinations.
