This is the 2nd Edition. Mistakes and errors of the 1st Edition have been corrected and some illustrations have been improved. The complete structure of the book has been revised and optimized. But also several chapters were supplemented by new information. A complete new chapter about CAD/CAM technology has been added.
Resin materials are broadly used in dentistry for almost all indications and they will gain even more importance in the future. Especially the increasing performance and efficiency of the CAD/CAM technology and 3D-printing open possibilities to use resins not used up to now in dentistry. Besides of dentists, dental students or dental technicians there are many other specialists such as researchers, material scientists, industrial developers or experts of adjoining professional disciplines who are technically engaged in dental resins.
The idea of this e-book series is to present a three-level textbook consisting of Basic Level, Advanced Level and Expert Level versions dealing with material science and technology of dental resins. Every level significantly expands the information and knowledge given by the respective preceding version.
This book presents the Basic Level version. The Basic Level version especially addresses dentists, dental students, dental technicians, university teachers and all those who want to gain an overview about dental resins such as industrial developers or researchers of adjoining professional disciplines. The Basic Level gives a comprehensive insight into chemistry, physics, toxicology, material properties and compositions as well as the technical application of dental resins.
Prof. Dr. rer. nat. habil. Ralf Janda
Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf, Germany
Ralf Janda was born in Berlin in 1953. He studied chemistry at the Free University Berlin (FUB), obtained the degree Diploma-Chemist and graduated in 1979 as a natural science doctor (Dr. rer. nat.). His professional career as scientific assistant and lecturer at the FUB ended in 1980. This was also the year when Ralf Janda joined the dental industry as head of research and development. He worked for many different internationally leading dental companies (Kulzer GmbH, Germany, Degussa AG-Dental Division, today Degudent/Dentsply GmbH, Germany, Dentsply/Detech GmbH, Germany, Dentsply INC., USA, Dentaurum GmbH & Co. KG, Germany) in different leading positions as head of: R&D, production, quality assurance, dental technology, worldwide project leader) until 2003. During this time he was member in many dental standards commissions and from 1987 to 2000 he was also a member of the drug commission A at the drug institute of the Federal Republic of Germany (Bundesinstitut für Arzneimittel und Medizinprodukte). In 2003 he joined the cosmetic industry specialized on light curing artificial nail products and stayed there till 2017.
Besides of his professional life Ralf Janda had and still has a long and intensive scientific life as researcher and lecturer at several universities beginning at the FUB in 1978. From 1988 to 1990 he had a lectureship at the faculty of material sciences of the Technical University Berlin in resin composite materials. From 1991 to 1999 he worked as researcher and lecturer for non-metallic dental materials at the dental department of the Medical Faculty of the Johann Wolfgang Goethe-University, Frankfurt/M. In 1992 he obtained his habilitation (qualification for a teaching career at universities) and the degree Privatdozent (associate professor) in dental material science at the same university. Form 1999 to 2004 Ralf Janda was Privatdozent at the Center of Dental Medicine (Zentrum für Zahnmedizin) of the Medical Faculty (Medizinische Fakultät) - Charité of the Humboldt-University Berlin. Since 2004 he works as researcher and lecturer at the dental clinic "Westdeutsche Kieferklinik" of the Medical Faculty of the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf. In 2006 he was appointed as apl. Professor (adjunct professor) in dental material science and he keeps this position until now.
