Emerging Nanotechnologies in Dentistry: Processes, Materials and Applications






Emerging Nanotechnologies in Dentistry: Processes, Materials and Applications

Author :



Comprehensive reference for the selection, fabrication and therapeutic use of nano-biomaterials and nanotechnologies for dental/oral biomedical science and implants, biomedical engineering and medical devices.
New nanomaterials are leading to a range of emerging dental treatments that utilize more biomimetic materials that more closely duplicate natural tooth structure (or bone, in the case of implants). The use of nanostructures that will work in harmony with the body’s own regenerative processes (eg, to restore tooth structure or alveolar bone) are moving into clinical practice. This book brings together an international team of experts from the fields of nanomaterials, biomedical engineering and dentistry, to cover the new materials and techniques with potential for use intra-orally or extra-orally for the restoration, fixation, replacement, or regeneration of hard and soft tissues in and about the oral cavity and craniofacial region. New dental nanotechnologies include the use of advanced inorganic and organic materials, smart and biomimetic materials, tissue engineering and drug delivery strategies.
