PDF: Application of Nanotechnology In Dental Implants

Nanotechnology is an upcoming tool in the field of implant dentistry. The aim of this review is to consider the role of nanotechnology for the purpose of improving osseointegration, also the various methods and techniques by which nano features can be imparted to implant surface. 

With the application of nanotechnology, the composition of dental implants, surface energy and roughness and topography can be improved for better osseointegration and it can also influence the events occurring at the bone-implant interface.

The cellular activities and tissue responses occurring at the bone-implant interface can be altered by nanoscale modifications and can result in better treatment outcomes.
