A Look Inside
Main Description
Dental Biomaterials provides a unique insight into the myriad of dental materials by examining them in the context of actual clinical applications. Throughout the text there are sections entitled 'Dental Significance' to emphasize the clinical importance of the material under discussion, resulting in a text that is perfect for students by imparting an unparalleled basic understanding of dental materials. It will also be a valuable reference for practicing dentists as it is highly objective and evidence-based. This approach provides sound advice for dentists charged with the difficult task of distinguishing between the plethora of materials available. It is amazingly broad in scope, providing basic information on polymers, metals and ceramics, including new product categories such as flowable composites, resin-modified glass ignomers and compomers, as well as providing a lucid insight into the highly confusing area of dentin bonding systems. It includes a review of contemporary materials and conservative restorative options and in doing so addresses materials used in virtually every dental discipline, including endodontics, periodontics, prosthodontics, orthodontics and pediatric dentistry. Of particular note is the attention given to esthetic restorative materials and properties.

This information is provided by a service that aggregates data from review sources and other sources that are often consulted by libraries, and readers. The University does not edit this information and merely includes it as a convenience for users. It does not warrant that reviews are accurate. As with any review users should approach reviews critically and where deemed necessary should consult multiple review sources. Any concerns or questions about particular reviews should be directed to the reviewer and/or publisher.
