There is a significant progress in the methods and materials employed in restorative dentistry especially because of the increasing demand for attractive and healthy teeth. Non-Metallic Biomaterials for Tooth Repair and Replacement highlights on the use of biomaterials for several applications in tooth repair and especially dental restoration.
Part one focuses on the structure, modification and repair of dental tissues. The characteristics of enamel and dentin and their role in adhesive dental restoration are studied, along with biomineralization and biomimicry of tooth enamel, and enamel matrix proteins (EMPs) for periodontal regeneration. Part two talks about the processing, bonding and wear properties of dental ceramics, glasses and sol-gel derived bioactive glass ceramics for tooth repair and replacement. The key focus of Part three are Dental composites for tooth repair and replacement, including composite adhesive and antibacterial restorative materials for dental applications. The impact of particulate filler systems on the properties and performance of dental polymer composites are considered, along with composite based oral implants, fibre reinforced composites (FRCs) as dental materials and luting cements for dental applications.
With an excellent team of expert contributors, Non-Metallic biomaterials for Tooth Repair and Replacement provides a clear overview for all those involved in the development and application of these materials, including academic researchers, materials scientists and dental clinicians.
