Chapter-03 Structure and Properties of Metals and Alloys by Manappallil John J (2016) Edition : 4/e

A metal can be defined as a substance with high thermal and electrical conductivity, lustre, and malleability, which readily loses electrons to form positive ions. In dentistry, metals or their alloys are used in dental restorations, prosthetic uses, functional appliances and splints e.g. orthodontic therapy and auxiliary uses. The periodic table is a chart ...

Chapter-04 Chemistry of Synthetic Resins by Rashid Najat, Sood Ramnik, Alla Rama Krishna (2013) Edition : 1/e

Polymers represent one of the major classes of dental materials and in this chapter, details of various types of polymers and their applications in dentistry were discussed. The chemistry of polymers such as condensation and addition polymerization reactions with suitable dental polymeric resin materials is explained. Copolymerization, types of copolymers an... [More]

Chapter-04 Electrochemical Properties of Materials by Manappallil John J (2016) Edition : 4/e

This chapter provides lucid and comprehensive understanding on electrochemical properties of materials. One of the primary requisites of any metal that is to be used in the mouth is that it must not produce corrosion products that will be harmful to the body. The mouth is moist and continually subjected to fluctuations in temperature. Tarnish is a surface di... [More]

Chapter-04 Tarnish and Corrosion by Manappallil John J (2010) Edition : 3/e

Except for a few, pure metals do not occur naturally. They occur in the form of minerals such as oxides and sulfides and these have to be refined to produce the pure metal. Most pure metals attempt to reconvert to the combined state. The process by which this takes place is called corrosion. One of the primary requisites of any metal that is to be used in th... [More]

Chapter-05 Biological Properties of Dental Materials by Manappallil John J (2016) Edition : 4/e

The science of dental materials must include a knowledge and appreciation of the biological considerations that are associated with selection and use of materials designed for the oral cavity. Strength and resistance to corrosion are unimportant if the material irritates or injures the pulp or soft tissue. The biological characteristics of dental materials c... [More]
