Nanotechnology has brought about a revolution in medical and dental care. The application of nanotechnology in dentistry has created tremendous effects in dental care. The incorporation of nanotechnology in dental materials has drastically improved the properties of these materials. Nanodentistry could result in a simplified local anesthesia procedure, dentition renaturalization, permanent hypersensitivity cure, complete orthodontic realignments during a single office visit, covalently bonded diamondised enamel and oral prophylaxis using mechanical dental nanorobots. Nanodentistry would play a vital role in dental treatment worldwide in the near future.
