Woodhead Publishing; 10th edition
The tenth edition of Materials Science for Dentistry is a reference book that is commonly used in graduate, undergraduate, and postgraduate dental school programs. It covers the structure and chemistry that regulate the behavior and performance of materials, which is essential information for the field of dentistry because it gives foundational coverage of the materials on which dentistry depends. Polymers, cements, gypsum, acrylic, waxes, ceramics, and metals are all examples of specific categories of materials. Other examples include waxes. In other chapters, topics such as surfaces, casting, mixing, corrosion, cutting and bonding, mechanical testing, and more are discussed. This updated 10th edition, which includes substantial chapters on chemistry, has been extensively revised with new material on temporary restoration resins, hydraulic silicate cements, and the practical aspects of wetting surfaces. Additionally, this edition has been updated to include substantial chapters on chemistry.
There is no other resource in the field of dentistry that is on par with this one in terms of its thoughtful writing and ability to explain behavior, formulation, clinical and laboratory instructions and procedures, and so on. This is true for researchers, teachers, students, and practitioners.
