- 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.
