Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Dental materials are biomaterials used in dental clinics for the treatment of diseases at oral and maxillofacial regions. Since tooth is very poor in its natural healing potential, dental materials are commonly used to reconstruct its function and morphology, However, circumstance of the dental materials are very severe since they will be suffered high and low temperature and pH cycling as wee as occlusal force. In addition, they will be exposed to bacteria. In this paper, present situation and current problems of dental materials will be reviewed based on the several dental treatment steps.
