Biomaterials for Oral and Dental Tissue Engineering examines the combined impact of materials, advanced techniques and applications of engineered oral tissues. With a strong focus on hard and soft intraoral tissues, the book looks at how biomaterials can be manipulated and engineered to create functional oral tissue for use in restorative dentistry, periodontics, endodontics and prosthodontics.

The first set of chapters reviews a wide range of biomaterial classes for oral tissue engineering. Further topics include material characterization and modification as well as biocompatibility and biotoxicity. Part 2 reviews strategies for biomaterial scaffold design whilst chapters in parts 3 and 4 review soft and hard tissues.

Covering current knowledge of material production, evaluation, challenges and applications as well as future trends, this book is a valuable resource for materials scientists and researchers in academia and industry.

Key Features

  • Connects materials science with restorative dentistry
