An attempt has been made to present the text point-wise, clinically oriented in simple and lucid language avoiding complicated chemical formulae so that it becomes comprehensive, and an average student of dental and basic sciences can easily understand the subject. Though the main framework of second edition has been retained, extensive revision of certain positions has been made. Topics like 'protein synthesis' have been rewritten keeping in view the recent advances. New chapters like 'Recombinant DNA Technology' and 'Biochemistry of AIDS' have been incorporated.

Physiology for Dental Students presents a combined view of physiological mechanisms and physiological systems. It discusses the oral importance of basic physiology. It addresses physiological principles and specific types of cells. Some of the topics covered in the book are the movements of materials across cell membranes; the fluid compartments of the body; the major storage of body water; histological and ultrastructural appearance of the salivary glands; the secretion of substances into the urine in the kidney; and the total osmotic activity of plasma. The morphology of the red blood cells is fully covered. The factors necessary for red blood cell development is discussed in detail. The text describes in depth the mechanical properties of smooth muscle. The process of breathing and the elasticity of lungs are presented completely. A chapter is devoted to the parts of the central nervous system. The book can provide useful information to dentists, doctors, students, and researchers.

This textbook considers the properties and applications of dental materials and includes all the necessary basic science and clinical applications. Virtually all procedures in restorative dentistry make use of a dental material. Among these materials are metals, ceramics, polymers and composites, and their uses include filling of cavities and root canals and the making of impressions or replicas of teeth and tissues prior to the construction of crowns, bridges and dentures. All dental students need to acquire a working knowledge of both the properties and applications of the materials which they will use. Written in an accessible friendly style which provides core information only – perfect for the busy dental student! Rich with pull-out boxes, tables, line artworks and photographs Describes the structure of materials with chapters on atomic bonding, metals, ceramics and polymers Explores the use of clinical dental materials including resin bonding to enamel and dentine and impression materials Describes the use of laboratory and related dental materials used in the construction of fixed and removable prostheses Contains everything that students need for BDS and equivalent exams! Includes new section on dental implant materials Completely new self-assessment section helps you get through the exam! Now published in full colour throughout

The 11th edition of this leading reference is an outstanding, scientifically based source of information in the field of dental materials science. It presents up-to-date information on materials that are used in the dental office and laboratory every day, emphasizing practical, clinical use, as well as the physical, chemical, and biological properties of materials. Extensive new clinical photographs in this edition illustrate the topics, and color plates are integrated close to related concepts as they're discussed in each chapter. A new glossary of key terms found at the beginning of every chapter defines terms in the appropriate context of the chapter's discussion. Also in this edition, critical thinking questions throughout the book stimulate the readers' curiosity on specific topics, test their existing knowledge, and heighten their awareness of important or controversial subjects. Content outlines at the beginning of each chapter provide a quick reference for specific topics. The roles played by key organizations in ensuring the safety and efficacy of dental materials and devices are described - such as the American Dental Association, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the International Organization for Standardization, and the Fédération Dentaire Internationale. Up-to-date Selected Readings are presented at the end of each chapter to direct readers to supplemental literature on each topic. Numerous boxes and tables throughout summarize and illustrate key concepts and compare characteristics and properties of various dental materials. Distinguished contributors lend their credibility and experience to the text. Content has been completely updated to include information on the most current dental materials available. Glossaries at the beginning of each chapter define key terms used within the context of that chapter. Revised artwork gives this edition a fresh look, with high-quality illustrations and clinical photos to aid in the visualization of materials and procedures described. Reorganization and consolidation of chapters into four major book parts presents the material in a more efficient way: Part I describes the principles of materials science that control the performance of dental materials in dental laboratories, research laboratories, student dental clinics, public health clinics, and private practice clinics. Part II focuses on impression materials, gypsum products, dental waxes, casting investments and procedures, and finishing and polishing abrasives and procedures. Part III provides an updated scientific and applied description of the composition, manipulation principles, properties, and clinical performance of bonded restorations, restorative resins, dental cements, dental amalgams, and direct-filling golds. Part IV presents a basic and applied description of materials that are processed in a laboratory or dental clinic. Critical thinking questions appear in every chapter to stimulate thinking and classroom discussion. The overall design has been improved to provide a more visually appealing format.
