A review of the biomaterials used in dentistry, this book explores their performance and how it can be measured and optimized. The text covers optical and electron microscopy imaging techniques for dental biomaterial interfaces, along with specific materials such as dental cements, fibre-reinforced composites, metals, and alloys. It provides an analysis of stresses, fracture, wear, and aging in dental biomaterials, and evaluates the performance of dental adhesives and resin-dentin bonds. It also discusses ways of assessing the performance of dental handpieces, crowns, implants, and prostheses, and examines the use of computer models.
