About this book

This book provides a comprehensive and scientifically based overview of the biocompatibility of dental materials. Up-to-date concepts of biocompatibility assessment are presented, as well as information on almost all material groups used in daily dentistry practice. Furthermore, special topics of clinical relevance (e.g,, environmental and occupational hazards and the diagnosis of adverse effects) are covered. The book will:

  • improve the reader’s ability to critically analyze information provided by manufacturers
  • supply a better understanding of the biocompatibility of single material groups, which will help the reader choose the most appropriate materials for any given patient and thus prevent adverse effects from developing 
  • provide insights on how to conduct objective, matter-of-fact discussions with patients about the materials to be used in dental procedures
  • advise readers, through the use of well-documented concepts, on how to treat patients who claim adverse effects from dental materials 
  • feature
clinical photographs that will serve as a reference when analyzing clinical symptoms, such as oral mucosa reactions.

"Edited by an illustrious authority on experimental study of dental materials -Professor Gottfried Schmalz … ‘Biocompatibility of Dental Materials’ is a well-documented textbook oriented towards the therapeutic and adverse effects of materials indicated for prophylaxis and treatment of oral and dental disease. … most valuble for the medical practitioner, who has the responsibility to select and individualize the type of treatment and thus the materials used for each clinical case. … This Textbook may also be used by students and residents in dentistry … ." (Diana Dudea, Cosmetic Dentistry, 2009)
