Summaries
Bowker Data Service Summary
The use of polymers for dental purposes started with the invention of vulcanised rubber. The development of the dough technique made it possible to use polyacrylates in dentistry. This book emphasizes the use of polymeric materials in dentistry.
Main Description
The use of polymers for dental purposes started with the invention of vulcanised rubber. The development of the dough technique made it possible to use polyacrylates in dentistry. The physical and mechanical properties of the cured base denture can be optimised by the proper selection of an initiator, plasticiser, pigment and cross-linking agents (di- or trifunctional methacrylates) The developing of the redox initiators for the polymerisation of methacrylates at room temperature made possible the direct application of these materials as filling resins. This book has been written in an effort to emphasise the use of polymeric materials in dentistry nowadays.
