Nanotechnology has been part of mainstream scientific theory with potential medical and dental applications since the early 1990s, Nanoparticles, nanospheres, nanorods, nanotubes, nanofibers, dendrimers and other nanostructures have been studied for various applications to biologic tissues and systems. Nanodentistry will make possible the maintenance of comprehensive oral health by employing nanomaterial's, including tissue engineering, and ultimately, dental Nanorobots. Nanotechnology carries a significant potential for misuse and abuse on a scale and scope never seen before. However, they also have potential to bring about significant benefits, such as improved health, better use of natural resources, and reduced environmental pollution.
