Contents:
Biomaterials, biocompatibility and biomechanics -- A historical perspective -- Atomic building blocks -- Structure of ceramics -- Structure of metals and alloys -- Structure of polymers -- Mechanical properties -- Physical properties -- Chemical properties -- Principles of adhesion -- Dental amalgams -- Resin composites and polyacid-modified resin composites -- Glass-ionomer cements and resin-modified glass-ionomer cements -- Intermediate restorative materials -- Enamal and dentine bonding -- Endodontic materials -- Impression materials -- Gypsum products -- Denture base resins -- Casting alloys for metallic restorations -- Dental ceramics -- Metal- bonded ceramics -- All-ceramic restorations : high- strength core ceramics -- All-ceramic restorations : resin -bonded ceramics -- Luting agents -- Stainless steel.
Review: "The typical lifespan of a modern dental material is short. Many of the materials which dental students study will be altered or replaced when they are practising dentists. To cope with these rapid advances, the dentist needs the ability to assess the potential of new materials. Introduction to Dental Materials will guide the reader towards developing that ability." "This book is also useful for qualified dentists who simply wish to update themselves on dental materials or for those who are preparing to take further examinations."--BOOK JACKET.
