Description
The 11th edition of this leading reference is an outstanding, scientifically based source of information in the field of dental materials science. It presents up-to-date information on materials that are used in the dental office and laboratory every day, emphasizing practical, clinical use, as well as the physical, chemical, and biological properties of materials. Extensive new clinical photographs in this edition illustrate the topics, and color plates are integrated close to related concepts as they're discussed in each chapter. A new glossary of key terms found at the beginning of every chapter defines terms in the appropriate context of the chapter's discussion. Also in this edition, critical thinking questions throughout the book stimulate the readers' curiosity on specific topics, test their existing knowledge, and heighten their awareness of important or controversial subjects.

Key Features

    • Organization of chapters and content into four parts (General Classes and Properties of Dental Materials; Auxiliary Dental Materials; Direct Restorative Materials; and Indirect Restorative Materials) presents the material in a logical and effective way for better comprehension and readability.
    • Balance between materials science and manipulation bridges the gap of knowledge between dentists and lab technicians.
    • Major emphasis on biocompatibility serves as a useful guide for clinicians and educators on material safety.
    • Distinguished contributor pool lends credibility and experience to each topic discussed.
    • Critical thinking questions appearing in boxes throughout each chapter stimulate thinking and encourage classroom discussion of key concepts and principles.
    • Key terms presented at the beginning of each chapter helps familiarize readers with key terms so you may better comprehend text material.

    New Features

    • NEW! Full color illustrations and line art throughout the book make text material more clear and vivid.
    • NEW! Chapter on Emerging Technologies keeps you up to date on the latest materials in use.
    • NEW! Larger trim size allows the text to have fewer pages and makes the content easier to read.
