Download or read book entitled Nanostructured Biomaterials for Cranio-Maxillofacial and Oral Applications by author: Júlio Souza which was release on 10 January 2018 and published by Elsevier with total page 242 pages . This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Nanostructured Biomaterials for Cranio-maxillofacial and Oral Applications examines the combined impact of materials science, biomedical and chemical engineering, and biology to provide enhanced biomaterials for applications in maxillo-facial rehabilitation and implantology. With a strong focus on a variety of material classes, it examines material processing and characterization techniques to decrease mechanical and biological failure in the human body. After an introduction to the field, the most commonly used materials for cranio-facial applications, including ceramics, polymers and glass ceramics are presented. The book then looks at nanostructured surfaces, functionally graded biomaterials and the manufacturing of nanostructured materials via 3-D printing. This book is a valuable resource for scientists, researchers and clinicians wishing to broaden their knowledge in this important and developing field. Explores the techniques used to apply nanotechnology to biomaterials for cranio-maxillofacial and oral applications Bridges the gap between fundamental materials science and medicine Shows how nanostructured biomaterials respond when implanted in the human body
