The development of new biocompatible materials and/or existing material composition and progressing techniques is expected to broaden the diversity of applications of biomaterials in dentistry field in upcoming years. The progress in materials research including dentin bondings, impression materials, luting cements, glass ionomers, glass carbomers, composites, and ceramics clearly requires an improved understanding in multiple disciplines, as well as the development of new design methodologies in order to obtain better properties in biologic performance and better biocompatibility.Researchers in the field of dentistry have explored the potential of nanoparticles in existing therapeutic modalities with moderate success. Nanotechnology in dental material sciences started with the introduction of microfills. In regards to biomaterials, nanotechnology has gained an increasing interest by researchers, particularly in case of dental implants. The use of biomaterials and implant therapy in dentistry is becoming a more popular and acceptable procedure for the replacement of both single and multiple teeth. Procedures have evolved for maintaining and regenerating bone to provide an optimal environment for subsequent implant placement. The growing interest in the dental applications of nanotechnology is leading to the emergence of a new field called nanodentistry.
