Little emphasis is placed on techniques of using materials since the author feels that this aspect is already adequately covered in other textbooks. Some elementary aspects of atomic structure have been omitted.
This seems a step in the right direction since the dental undergraduate should already be conversant with such matters if the pre-clinical basic science course is serving a useful purpose. The relationship between structure and properties, however, receives greater attention.
The important developments in the materials field over the past few years has naturally necessitated some expansion of the text.
A short section on pit and fissure sealants has been included and adhesive resin techniques are referred to briefly.
The future clinical potential of these techniques, however, might well have justified a greater allocation of space.
The chapter on composite materials has been largely rewritten because of rapid progress in this area.
Chapters have also been included on radiographic and implant materials. Whilst the desire to make the book as comprehensive as possible is quite understandable, not everyone would be completely in favour of the inclusion of the properties of X-ray films. The modest increase in size of the book some 37 pages has been achieved by careful pruning in areas where this is justified.
Thus, for example, less space has been devoted to acrylic restorative materials and vulcanite, which have now been largely superseded in clinical practice. The lists of references at the end of each chapter have been extended and amended where necessary.
A useful innovation is the provision of a brief introduction to most of the references. This should provide a most useful guide to the student and so result in a significant reduction of time lost by looking up references which subsequently turn out to be largely irrelevant to the main area of interest.
It is also gratifying to note that in the preparation of the new edition, advantage has been taken of the opportunity to remove one or two small errors present in the earlier edition. Overall, therefore, there is no doubt that the author has raised further the standard of what is already an extremely popular book, particularly with the dental undergraduate. Key Features Organization of chapters and content into four parts General Classes and Properties of Dental Materials; Auxiliary Dental Materials; Direct Restorative Materials; and Indirect Restorative Materials presents the material in a logical and effective way for better comprehension and readability.
Balance between materials science and manipulation bridges the gap of knowledge between dentists and lab technicians. Major emphasis on biocompatibility serves as a useful guide for clinicians and educators on material safety.
Distinguished contributor pool lends credibility and experience to each topic discussed.
Critical thinking questions appearing in boxes throughout each chapter stimulate thinking and encourage classroom discussion of key concepts and principles.
Key terms presented at the beginning of each chapter helps familiarize readers with key terms so you may better comprehend text material. The first seven chapters cover the background of dental material science, discussing the role of dental materials, the oral environment, design criteria, testing of materials, biocompatibility and the broad classes of biomaterial of interest in dentistry.
The subsequent chapters explore different classes of relevant biomaterials in finer detail.
The scientific basis of materials such as composite, ceramics, metal alloys, impression mediums and adhesives are addressed in a manner that is both informative and engaging.
The fourteenth chapter in this text is brand new to this edition and explores digital imaging and processing techniques and the materials essential for this method. A strength of this text book is that it not only provides scientific information in isolation but also explores the application of these materials and discusses relevant clinical studies keeping the evidence-based nature of dental treatment at the fore.
Chapters on tissue engineering and dental implants highlight the innovative nature of dental material science and how it is changing modern dental practice.
