Nano technology is the science and engineering related to particles sized 10-9 of a meter. Albeit, the small size, they have opened up a huge array of possibilities for this world. By the inclusion of nanoparticles in various materials not only, the field of engineering but also, medical and dentistry have been benefitted largely. Researchers have manipulated the particles at a molecular and atomic level, which have opened up huge possibilities for the same material. The recent advances have helped to achieve accurate and fast diagnosis, helped to prolong the longevity of dental materials and hence helped to create a healthy oral environment. However, with all these developments, it is important that we focus on the shortcoming or the hazards too and carefully comply with the same before its long-term application. Therefore, this article focuses on the basis, all the present applications of Nano dentistry and the potential it holds for the field of dentistry in future.
