This volume provides an insight into the myriad of dental materials by examining them in the context of actual clinical applications. Throughout the text there are sections entitled "dental significance" to emphasize the clinical importance of the material under discussion, resulting in a text that is perfect for students by imparting an unparalleled basic understanding of dental materials. It should also be useful for practicing dentists as it is objective and evidence-based. This approach provides sound advice for dentists charged with the difficult task of distinguishing between the plethora of materials available. It is also broad in scope, providing basic information on polymers, metals and ceramics, including new product categories such as flowable composites, resin-modified glass ignomers and compomers, as well as providing an insight into the highly confusing area of dental bonding systems. It includes a review of contemporary materials and conservative restorative options, and in doing so addresses materials used in virtually every dental discipline, including endodontics, periodontics, prosthodontics, orthodontics and pediatric dentistry.
Of particular note is the attention given to esthetic restorative materials and properties.
