DENT 2115 - Dental Materials Science

[44 Hours]
The purpose of this course is to provide an applied and working understanding of the fundamental nature and behavior of dental materials. The course includes the composition, properties, application, and manipulation of metal-ceramic and polymeric dental materials. The success or failure of many forms of dental treatment depends upon the correct selection of materials possessing adequate properties, as well as careful manipulation of these materials. This course provides a fundamental framework for understanding the capabilities and limitations of dental materials. This knowledge is important for all clinical courses and dental treatment that require the use of dental materials. (Department of Comprehensive Dentistry and Biomaterials)
