This thesis studies in depth the various processes, materials and advances in dental and cranial facial techniques and methods. Two main important areas in the field of cranial facial engineering have been addressed. The first of it being techniques and methods for better dental restoration and the second being evaluation of wear and tear on dental tools and materials for enhanced life and performance. The work in all the chapters focuses on methods and materials that are being used at the present time. These techniques are being used in the prostheses on a day to day basis to fabricate custom titanium bone replacement prostheses. Due to the growing need and importance of biomaterials in the dental and medical fields this research in this work has been directed primarily at solving practical clinical problems associated with new techniques and materials. I confirm that the thesis is my own work; and that all published or other sources of material consulted have been acknowledged in notes to the text or the bibliography.
