Nanotechnology in Dentistry
Anjali Gupta, Siddharth Kumar Singh, Palkin Mehta

Nanotechnology is the engineering of functional systems at the molecular scale. It deals with structures ranging in the size of 100 nanometers or smaller in at least one dimension and developing materials or devices within that size. Nanotechnology deals with the physical, chemical, and biological properties of structures and their components at nanoscale dimensions. Nanotechnology is based on the concept of creating functional structures by controlling atoms and molecules on a one-by-one basis. The use of this technology will allow many developments in the health sciences as well as in materials science, biotechnology, electronic and computer technology, aviation, and space exploration. With developments in materials science and biotechnology, nanotechnology is especially anticipated to provide advances in dentistry and innovations in oral health-related diagnostic and therapeutic methods. Key words: Nanomaterials, Nanodentistry, Nanorobots, Nanotechnology
