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.
