Nanoparticles in Dentistry – Risks and Promises
Interest in the use of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) in clinical dentistry is growing. ENMs have dental applications as antibacterials for infection control, as nanofillers to improve the mechanical and bioactive properties of restoration materials, and as novel coatings on dental implants. Dentifrices and some related personal care products are already available for oral health applications. Nanoparticles have unique properties due to their small size and large surface area, explaining the unconditional understanding of their behaviour. Their behaviour and kinetics are even more complex when present in biological media.

Learning Objective :
  1. Definition and classification of nanoparticles
  2. Applications of engineered nanomaterials in clinical dentistry
  3. Interaction of nanoparticles with the oral microenvironment
