Overview

Containing over 60 articles specially written for this work or revised from the highly acclaimed Encyclopedia of Materials Science and Engineering, the Concise Encyclopedia of Medical & Dental Materials presents, in a single volume, the work of nearly 70 world experts on the current techniques and applications of materials which have been specially developed to satisfy the increasing needs of medical and dental science. Alphabetically arranged, articles cover the basic materials used including prostheses, implants, sutures and wound dressings. The biocompatibility, wear, corrosion and surface properties of the materials are also covered, as well as the mechanics of their implantation, adhesion and repair. Each article is extensively cross-referenced to other related topics and a bibliography is included referring readers to other appropriate current literature. Widely illustrated and complemented by a comprehensive three-level subject index, this is the most comprehensive and up-to-date survey of dental and medical materials available in a single volume.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The book undoubtedly deserves a place on the shelves of all Medical (and Dental) School libraries, and for that matter in personal bookcases.
Endeavour
D.C. Watts
There has been a longstanding need for a definitive single-volume, encyclopaedic treatment that expounds the subject in depth with clarity and accuracy. I consider that this treatise meets that need and will be valued by students, clinicians, academics and researchers in the public and private sectors who are working in this field or who may be considering doing so... The book is notable for the scholarship displayed in each section and has been produced to a high technical standard with an attractive layout and a full index...a quality product.
