Summary: Designed to give dental assistants and dental hygienists a solid understanding of the clinical use of dental materials, this outstanding new text covers critical topics and includes only the technical information related to the responsibilities of practicing dental assistants and hygienists. In user-friendly language, it discusses the dental material's chemical makeup, preparation, and safe handling. The practical focus shows readers how to mix, use, and apply dental more materials, emphasizing their use in relation to the patient's course of treatment and the dental assistant's or hygienist's role in their application. A hands-on, illustrated approach to procedures explains how to perform each step, with rationales explaining why the step is necessary. A color insert demonstrates visual topics, such as the effect of bleaching on tooth coloration. Competency sheets at the end of the book enable readers to test their understanding of how to perform procedures and handle a variety of dental materials.
