Geriatric & Nano Dentistry

Geriatric dentistry is the delivery of dental care to older adults involving diagnosis, prevention, management and treatment of problems linked with age related diseases. The mouth is stated to as a mirror of overall health, reinforcing that oral health is an integral part of general health. In the aged population poor oral health has been considered a risk factor for general health problems. Older adults are more susceptible to oral conditions or diseases due to an increase in chronic conditions and physical/mental infirmities. Thus, the elderly form a distinct group in terms of delivery of care.

Nano dentistry is a branch that encompasses the maintenance and up gradation of oral health care yet more precise by employing nanomaterials, biotechnology, including tissue engineering & ultimately dental Nano robotics. Recent growths of nanoparticles and nanotubes in operative dentistry, endodontics, periodontal management, has played a developing role in the enhancement of dental industry. Nanomaterial’s and nanoparticles are keystones of innovative dental devices used for drug discovery and delivery, discovery of biomarkers, and molecular diagnostics. Nano dentistry aims to control and fine tune particle to create unique with novel properties and advances in dentistry.
