Written by a dental hygiene educator and biomaterials scientist, the fully updated Second Edition of this unique text examines the clinical aspects of dental materials and materials science--including the composition of dental materials and their proper use and handling in laboratory and clinical applications. The clearly organized text is presented in outline format with numerous illustrations, radiographs, and procedural techniques. For this edition, board review questions have been added to the end of each chapter to facilitate self-paced learning. Readers will also find new learning activities, more definitions for key terms, and new laboratory and clinical evaluation competency criteria.
