Tiny NANO things to improve Dentistry in a BIG way
Dr. Harvansh Singh Judge Institute of Dental Sciences & Hospital, Panjab University, Chandigarh
Continuous improvisation in dental materials and procedures is pushing dentistry into the nanotechnology regime. Nanotechnology duly supported by scientific medical advancement is predicted to provide solutions to many roadblocks in dentistry. Nanostructures such as nanoparticles, nanotubes, nanorods, quantum dots, nanospheres, nanofibers, etc. are being analysed for use as material in dentistry. Nanotechnology promises to provide holistic oral health care by virtue of its understanding of the pathophysiologic basis of disease and with the aid of the supporting properties of nanomaterials and dental nanorobotics.
