Dental technicians must have a comprehensive knowledge of dental anatomy, physiology, and pathology in order to work with dentists to produce successful dental prostheses. Much training for dental technicians is spent on honing sound technical skills, but this textbook lays out the theoretical foundation that is prerequisite for reproducing functional and esthetic teeth and replacement tissues for individual dentitions. By providing the medical and technical context for dental technology work and focusing on functional interrelation among the anatomical components, the authors establish the variables and criteria for measuring success.
The ‘Basic Guide to Dental Materials’ is the essential guide to dental materials for all members of the dental team. Information is provided in a clear and concise manner, breaking the topic of dental materials down to the core basics.
Dentistry is a branch of medicine with its own peculiarities and very diverse areas of action, which means that it can be considered as an interdisciplinary field. BIODENTAL ENGINEERING II contains the full papers presented at the 2nd International Conference on Biodental Engineering (BioDENTAL 2012, Porto, Portugal, 7-8 December 2012). The contributions from 8 countries provide a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary coverage of the state-of-the-art in biodental engineering, and include the following subjects:• Aesthetics• Bioengineering• Biomaterials• Biomechanical disorders• Biomedical devices• Computational bio-imaging and visualization• Computational methods• Dental medicine• Experimental mechanics• Signal processing and analysis• Implantology• Minimally invasive devices and techniques• Orthodontics• Prosthesis and orthosis• Simulation• Software development• Telemedicine• Tissue engineering• Virtual realityBIODENTAL ENGINEERING II intends to cover recent advances in new techniques and technologies, and will be of interest to academics and others interested in biodental engineering.
