Applications of nanotechnology in orthodontics and its future implications: A review

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Deepti Govindankutty
ABSTRACT: Nanotechnology is manipulating matter at nanometer level. This concept can be applied to the field of medicine and dentistry with the terms Nanomedicine and Nanodentistry being used respectively. Nanotechnology holds promise in many areas like advanced diagnostics, targeted drug delivery and biosensors. It has several applications in dentistry as well, from diagnosis of pathological conditions to local anaesthesia, orthodontic tooth movement and periodontics. Biomaterials science has also greatly benefited by this technology. This review provides an early glimpse on the impact and future implication of nanotechnology in orthodontics.
