Nanodentistry is the application of nanotechnology in dentistry. The arrival of 21st century, suddenly focused on dentistry a new paradigm regarding expected standard for state-of the- art-patient care. Over last few years truly remarkable progress has been made in such diverse areas as proteomics, gene therapy, vaccine development, stem cells, tissue engineering nanotechnology and drug development through combinatorial chemistry.
Although much of this progress has been at the preclinical, translational research stage and some notable advances have already entered the clinic. Nanodentistry is the future of dentistry in which every procedure will be performed using equipment and devices based on nanotechnology. All diagnoses and treatments will be given using nanoscale-structured materials and nanorobots. These materials and devices will have the ability to accurately diagnose a problem and provide solution in the shortest possible time and precisely.
Nanotechnology makes it possible to construct materials which have longer life and very close to nature. Nanoproducts made for various dental procedures has more hardness, elasticity and strength with increased shelf life than the ones which were used in conventional practice. Furthermore, they will have better appearance in terms of color, texture and esthetic appeal.
