Basic Dental Materials is the new edition of this extensive guide to materials used in dentistry. The book has been entirely reorganised, with substantial revisions in each chapter incorporating the latest developments and research findings, and new colour illustrations have been added. This book is divided into seven sections, the first covering the structure and properties of dental materials, including electrochemical and biological properties. Further sections cover specific groups of materials, including direct restorative materials, endodontic materials (new to this edition), impression materials, materials and processes in the dental laboratory, alloys, and indirect restorative and prosthetic materials. The chapter on dental ceramics in the final section is entirely revised to reflect the significant advances in this technology since the previous edition. Basic Dental Materials provides a practical approach to the selection and use of modern dental materials, with guidance on preparation for indirect restorations such as crowns, bridges and inlays.
Enhanced by 645 images and illustrations, this comprehensive book will bring the knowledge of dental students and practising students firmly up to date.
