It is difficult to predict the future of any major technology. Nanotechnology is a science that deals with the research and development of materials and devices at the atomic or molecular level. Almost every aspect of human life will be influenced by future nanotechnologies. With the advancement in the technology, it is also getting incorporated in various medical fields including dentistry (nanodentistry). Though it is relatively new in dentistry, there is ever growing interest in application of nanodentistry both in the development of materials and devices.
