About the book
Teeth play an invaluable role in our lives. The loss of their function diminishes our capability to eat a stable diet, which has undesirable consequences for general health. Therefore, the goal of modern dentistry is to restore the patients' teeth to normal function in view of health, aesthetics, and speech; regardless to the atrophy, disease, or injury of the stomatognathic system. The advances in materials science over the past two decades have encouraged innovation resulting in robust levels of restorative options. The field of restorative dentistry is undergoing rapid transition as these new technologies come to play an increasingly central role in everyday dental practice.
This book will provide up-to-date, freely comprehensible information on the materials and equipment introduced in restorative dentistry. The readers will be able to discover supportive information on the materials and technologies used in restorative dentistry. Therefore, by linking the knowledge gap that was generated by materials technological revolution in the field of dentistry, the book subjects will meet the needs of dental students, dentists and researchers.
