9780867154061: Dental Materials and Their Selection

Principles of materials science are closely integrated with everyday dental practice in this revised textbook. Written in a practical, straightforward manner, it provides a fundamental knowledge of material structure and properties, and real-life clinical examples show how to apply this information to restorative treatments. This didactic combination will enable students, technicians, and clinicians to select appropriate materials for various clinical situations.

This book really comes in to its own for dental students. The clever method used by the author to link materials science and materials application makes this an excellent learning tool and resource for the budding dentist. --Dr Ross Powell, - Australian Dental Association Victorian Branch Newsletter, December 2009
