Materials Science for Dentistry, 10th Edition, is a standard resource for graduate, undergraduate and postgraduate courses in dentistry. It provides fundamental coverage of the materials on which dentistry depends, covering the structure and chemistry that govern the behavior and performance of materials. Particular classes of materials include polymers, cements, gypsum, acrylic, waxes, ceramics and metals. Other chapters review surfaces, casting, mixing, corrosion, cutting and bonding, and mechanical testing. This updated 10th edition, which includes substantial chapters on chemistry, has been extensively revised with new material on temporary restoration resins, hydraulic silicate cements and the practical aspects of wetting surfaces.
Mindfully written to provide explanations for behavior, formulation, clinical and laboratory instructions and procedures, there is no comparable resource for researchers, teachers, students, and practitioners in the field of dentistry.
