Dental Materials and Their Selection

From The Critics
This third edition of a text for dental students reflects the recent proliferation of products and techniques and the information explosion in science and technology, and incorporates a framework for a hierarchy of different types of evidence used to evaluate dental materials. It also offers twice as many clinical scenarios. After a comparison of metals, ceramics, and polymers, some areas covered are biocompatibility, adhesion to tooth structure, and impression materials. Other topics include dental cements, casting alloys, orthodontic wires, and implant and bone augmentation materials. Learning features include discussion questions, chapter glossaries, and study questions. O'Brien teaches biologic and materials sciences at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry.
