Abstract

Nanotechnology was first described in 1959 by physicist Richard P Feynman. The term “NANO” is derived from the Greek word “DWARF”. Application in the field started in the 1980 with the invention of scanning tunnelling microscopes and the discovery of carbon monotubes. The aim of this article is to review potential application, hazards of nanoscience in Conservative dentistry and Endodontics. While bacteria reach a size of 10 -6 m, nanotechnology deals with structures as small as 10 -9 m.
