Nanobiomaterials in Clinical Dentistry, Second Edition shows how a variety of nanomaterials are being used to solve problems in clinical dentistry. New nanomaterials are leading to a range of emerging dental treatments that utilize more biomimetic materials that more closely duplicate natural tooth structure (or bone, in the case of implants). The book's chapters discuss the advantages and challenges of using nanomaterials and include case studies to illustrate how a variety of materials are best used in research and practice.

Key Features

  • Contains information from an interdisciplinary, international group of scientists and practitioners in the fields of nanomaterials, dental implants, medical devices and clinical practice
  • Presents a comprehensive reference on the subject that covers material fabrication and the use of materials for all major diagnostic and therapeutic dental applications--repair, restoration, regeneration, implants and prevention
  • Complements the editors' previous book on nanotechnology applications for dentistry


Post-docs, researchers and R&D in the fields of nanomaterials/biomedical nanotechnology, biochemistry, oral biology. As well as dental manufacturers, dental researchers and clinical practitioners, primarily in the areas of dental materials, restorative dentistry, implantology, oral surgery and periodontics.
