This book comes with an on-line self-assessment tool - perfect for undergraduate revision and exam preparation!. It is essential that dentists have a sound understanding of the principles underlying the selection and use of the materials they rely upon for restorative procedures. Rapid changes in material science, however, ensure that the typical lifespan of a dental material can be as little as three years before it is superseded by another one. As such, all practitioners need to be constantly up-to-date with developments to be able to assess the potential of new materials – a situation that requires a thorough understanding and appreciation of the composition, chemistry and properties of the materials they work with. Now in its 4th edition, this highly successful textbook continues to present dental material science in an accessible, easy-to-read format perfectly tailored to the needs of the busy dental student. Rich with line artworks, ‘pull-out’ boxes and ample use of photographs and tables, Introduction to Dental Materials covers the basic science, clinical dental materials and laboratory materials used in the construction of fixed and removable prostheses.
