Materials science for dentistry (Woodhead Publishing Series in Biomaterials) 10th Edition
by Dr B. W. Darvell.
ISBN: 9780081010358 • Paperback • 842 pages • Elsevier

Materials Science for Dentistry provides fundamental coverage of the materials on which dentistry depends, covering the structure and chemistry that govern the behaviour and performance of materials. Particular classes of materials include gypsum, polymers, acrylic, cements, waxes, ceramics and metals. Other chapters review surfaces, corrosion, mixing, casting, cutting and bonding, and mechanical testing. This updated 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.
Mindfully written to provide explanations for behaviour, formulation, clinical and laboratory instructions and procedures, there is no comparable resource for researchers, students, teachers and practitioners in the field of dentistry.
