Description

Key Feature:- 

• Conceptual clinical situations are supported by appropriate, high-resolution photographs.
• Recent advances and additional information have been added and partly highlighted in boxes.
• All tables given in this book are important as PG entrance examinations' study material.
• Key points in connection with multiple-choice questions asked in various competitive entrance examinations such as AIPG, AIIMS, and NEET are emphasized in the form of highlighted words in the text.
• For self-assessment, probable questions are given at the end of each chapter.
• Material manipulation videos are included to enable better understanding of manipulation procedures.

This book, with its illustrated discussion on an array of dental materials used across specialties and with contributions from experienced academicians as well as clinicians, will serve as an ideal textbook for BDS students. Postgraduates and practitioners would also find this book as an authentic ready reference resource.
