Advanced Ceramics for Dentistry by James Shen Book PDF Summary

The growth of implant and fixed prosthodontics practices in dentistry has created a rapidly increasing demand for advanced ceramics and ceramic processes. Innovations in ceramics and ceramic processes are vital to ensure reliable and affordable dental-restoration solutions with aesthetically pleasing outcomes. The work aims to engage the bioceramics and engineering communities to meet the challenges of modern dental restoration using advanced ceramics. Incorporating fundamental science, advanced engineering concepts, and clinical outcomes, the work is suitable for bioceramicists, ceramics manufacturers, dental clinicians and biologists. State-of-the-art-coverage encompasses bioresorbable ceramics for bone regeneration and bioactivating surfaces of inert, high-strength ceramics for implantation, keeping research knowledge appropriately updated Discusses transition from the baseline stable and physically stiff ceramics research into engineering of highly coherent laminate composites for prosthetic crowns and bridges Showcases current feasible techniques for producing, in cost-effective and materials-saving ways, long-lasting individualized ceramic components with biocompatibility, complexity and high precision

Ceramic materials are frequently and increasingly used in dentistry. However, they are very brittle, the tensile strength has a large scatter, and their total fracture strain is very low. The strength depends on the loaded volume and on time under load. These properties cause special needs with respect to design,

The mechanical reliability and aesthetic appearance of ceramic dental prostheses are strongly influenced by the presence of defects. When several processes are used during fabrication of ceramic dental prostheses, additional defects are unavoidably introduced in each process step; these are in addition to the ones that already exist in raw

This chapter gives an introduction to advanced ceramics from the perspective of restorative dentistry. Fundamentals of composition and functionality are used for defining and classifying advanced ceramics. A historical overview helps differentiate advanced ceramics from traditional ceramics. The focus of the chapter is on linking ceramic properties to their compositions

Bioactive ceramics are used as bulk, porous bodies, or surface-active layers on dental implants and as morphogenetically active scaffolds inserted into the jawbone. While the former has been popularly applied as artificial dental roots for recovering the function of lost teeth, the latter are increasingly used for regenerating bone tissue.

Feldspathic porcelains, leucite, and lithium disilicate glass-ceramics are important materials used in restorative dentistry for their biocompatibility, excellent aesthetic properties, good mechanical strength, and relative ease of use. As a general rule in clinical practice, the choice of material should be dictated by the specific clinical situation. It depends on

Fractographic analysis is a useful tool for finding fracture origins that is necessary for improving the reliability of ceramic restorations. The general analysis begins with the determination of fracture patterns and origins. The crack propagation markings found by examination of fracture surfaces allow one to follow crack paths and to

Tooth defects and missing teeth are common oral diseases that threaten the patient’s health, aesthetics, and self-confidence. Prosthodontics is a dental specialty with a long history of providing artificial prostheses to restore or replace the damaged or missing teeth and dentition of patients. Based on type and degree, there
