Nanotechnology or nanoscience is the research and development of an applied science at the atomic, molecular, or macromolecular levels (i.e., molecular engineering and manufacturing). Periodontitis is one of the most common diseases involving tooth and it's supporting structures. Management of which is important for improving the quality of life of the patient that has it's impact on the overall health of an individual. With upsurge of various treatment methodologies for the treatment of periodontitis, nanotechnology has evolved as a promising mode of treatment. Applications of nanotechnology in medical and dental fields have only approached the horizon with opportunities and possibilities for the future that can only be limited by our imagination. This paper provides an early glimpse of nanotechnology applications in dentistry and also illustrates the potential of different nanomaterials and their impact on clinical practice.
