Title: Applications of nanotechnology in Dentistry
Biography: Omid Panahi
In the last few decades, nanotechnology has become prominent in medical sciences, especially in dentistry, including the treatment and prevention of oral and dental disease using nanosciences. Therefore, an understanding of nanotechnology is an essential to further understanding how these materials can be used in dentistry. Further, various modern nanotechnology products and new therapies are on the way. This study discusses the latest advances of nanotechnology in dentistry; including nano-based oral and dental technologies being the major improvements in restorative dentistry (nano-composites, nano-resin modified GIC, nano-GIC, mineral solutions); in Prosthodontics (nano-hybrid composites); in Endodontics (sealers); in Periodontics (Grafts, nano-materials for tissue regeneration); in Oral Implantology (nanonite implant); and in Orthodontics ( nanorobots, archwires). With the development of nanotechnology and the use of nanomaterials in dentistry, it will eventually improve the quality of lifes of millions of persons by improving examinations and medical and dental treatments with new technologies.
