Description

Materials science for dentistry differs from all existing textbooks in the field, with the goal of insight into the way materials work in dentistry, emphasizing explanation of the physical and chemical processes underlying behaviour. It avoids reference to products in favour of fundamental concepts that will be of value over a full working lifetime in all classes of material and their use. The book is organized systematically to build progressively a comprehensive understanding of all classes of material used in dentistry, using specific examples to introduce generalities which may be called on in later contexts. The avoidance of numbers and recipes, and the recognition of the diverse backgrounds of those needing to study the subject, makes this book accessible to all students of dentistry and biomaterials from undergraduate to postgraduate, teachers and technicians, and anyone involved in such research.
