AUTHOR(S): Prajakta Sanap, Vivek Hegde, Dhananjay Ghunawat, Madhuri Patil, Nishat Nagaonkar and Vinit Jagtap
ABSTRACT:Nanotechnology is widely used in our day to day life including its use in medicine. Nanostructures are used in innovations or diagnosis of dentistry. Some nano-particles are used for oral disease preventive drugs, prostheses and for teeth implantation. Nano-materials further deliver oral fluid or drugs, preventing and curing some oral disease like oral cancer and maintain oral health care up to a high extent. The nanoparticle like chitosan has anti-microbial, anti-oxidant, and anti-tumor effects. The literature search was done by the online and text search. The data was conducted using different electronic databases and the articles published in the different journals were obtained. The nanoparticle like chitosan has anti-microbial, anti-oxidant, and anti-tumor effects. Therefore, the purpose of present review was to evaluate the different aspects of nano-particles like chitosan in the Dentistry.
