Nanotechnology for Dentistry Applications

Ashutosh Kumar Shukla


This volume presents the applications of Nanotechnology to different fields of dentistry. Recognized dental specialities such as orthodontics, endodontics and prosthodontics have been covered in addition to general dentistry applications of nanotechnology. The book, in a comprehensive fashion, delves into such technologies as drug nanocarriers, nanomaterials, implants and other nanoparticle applications related to dentistry, and shows how these, in turn, will enhance therapeutic effects against dental bacteria and erosion. This book not only presents the current trends in dental therapies but also presents the current research trends and potential applications. A bottom-up approach has been mostly adopted to suit the need of a wide audience including novice researchers and post graduate students.

Key Features:

  • Each chapter includes brief review in the initial paragraphs followed by recent trends
  • Content level designed to suit the needs of technicians in addition to novice researchers
  • There is necessary  minimum overlap from available literature
  • A number of the chapter authors are highly esteemed researchers in their prospective fields
  • Unique coverage of such topics as nanorobotic local anesthetics, neurotoxticity, nano endodontic sealers, orthodontic nanorobots, nanodiagnostics
