Use this quick guide to learn the essentials of dental materials! Dental Materials: A Pocket Guide describes how to recognize, select, and mix the most widely used materials in modern dentistry. A flip-book format covers each dental material in two pages, with the first page showing photos of the material before and after mixing, and the facing page including step-by-step mixing and use instructions. This compact, spiral-bound guide is ideal for on-the-go study or chairside reference.

  • Flip-book style is ideal for quick identification and quizzing, devoting two pages to each dental material — one with photos, and the other featuring its description — so you can choose to view only the image, only the description, or both.
  • Hundreds of high-quality photographs help you recognize, identify, and select dental materials, showing materials in three ways: 1) as they appear within manufacturer packaging, 2) as they appear in their unmixed forms, and 3) as they appear at the completion of mixing.
  • Need-to-know information includes the form in which the dental material is supplied, its composition, the armamentarium for use, and step-by-step directions on how to mix and use the material.
  • Helpful hints or special considerations highlight specific terms, issues, properties, or clinical uses of the materials.
  • Convenient, easy-to-follow organization groups chapters into the main categories of materials including restorative materials, impression materials, dental waxes, bonding agents, whitening agents, and others.
  • Compact, pocket size with spiral binding is ideal for chairside use or on-the-go study.
  • Equipment Commonly Used to Manipulate Materials chapter sets up a foundation of essential knowledge by describing the equipment needed for work in dental materials.
  • Historical Dental Materials chapter covers older materials that may still have a place within many dental offices.
  • Quick-reference appendices make it easier to look up metric conversion tables along with photos of commonly used brand-name products for each type of material.
