The growth of implant and fixed prosthodontics practices in dentistry has created a rapidly increasing demand for advanced ceramics and ceramic processes. Innovations in ceramics and ceramic processes are vital to ensure reliable and affordable dental-restoration solutions with aesthetically pleasing outcomes.

The work aims to engage the bioceramics and engineering communities to meet the challenges of modern dental restoration using advanced ceramics. Incorporating fundamental science, advanced engineering concepts, and clinical outcomes, the work is suitable for bioceramicists, ceramics manufacturers, dental clinicians and biologists.

Review quote

"Topics that are glanced at in books on bioceramics and books on dental materials take center stage here as scientists in dentistry and ceramics from China and northern Europe focus mostly on the material, but also on their application. Among their topics are dental implants, clinical failures of ceramic dental prostheses, ceramics based on aluma and zirconia for load bearing applications, requirements of bioactive ceramics for dental implants and scaffolds...", February 2014
