Abstract

Nanotechnology is a phenomenon present since the late 1950's and is currently finding a strong ground in the field of dentistry. Nanotechnology when integrated into dentistry gives rise to a new stream nanodentistry. The purpose of this paper is to review nanodentistry in its current form categorizing broadly into bottom up approach and top dowm approach hence covering various applications of nanotechnology ranging from the nanorobots in nano anesthesia to its varied use in dental materials and implants. Nanotechnology is an empire in the rising and though it faces many challenges such potential toxicity of nanoparticles, risks due to malicious and unwise use of molecular manufacturing, it still offers great potential for innovations in dentistry.
