Materials Science for Dentistry is a standard resource for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in dentistry.
It provides a fundamental understanding of the materials on which dentistry depends, covering those aspects of structure and chemistry which govern the behaviour and performance of materials in use. Particular classes of materials discussed include gypsum, polymers, acrylic, cements, waxes, ceramics and metals. Other chapters review topics such as surfaces, corrosion, mixing, casting, cutting and bonding as well as mechanical testing. This updated edition, which includes a substantial new chapters on chemistry, has been extensively revised with, new material on temporary restoration resins, hydraulic silicate cements and practical aspects of wetting surfaces.
Mindfully written to provide explanations for behaviour, formulation, clinical and laboratory instructions and procedures, there is no comparable single source available. Assembled and developed over more than 35 years, on the basis that there should be no assertion without scientific justification, the content is as valid on the last day of practice as the first. This new edition is an authoritative and valuable resource for researchers, students, teachers and practitioners in the dentistry field.
- The most comprehensive and detailed book on dental materials science
- Includes much new material, covering wetting, mechanics, zirconia, and fibres and a new chapter on chemistry
- Developed by an experienced international expert with feedback and input from practising scientists, clinicians, instructors and students
Researchers in academia and industry relating to dentistry and materials science, post graduates, undergraduates, teachers and clinicians
