Research and Markets has declared that it now offers a comprehensive research book entitled ‘Emerging Nanotechnologies in Dentistry. Processes, Materials and Applications’ of Elsevier Science and Technology.
An international and interdisciplinary team of bio-nanomaterial researchers, oral and dental biomedical scientists have prepared the book. The book features detailed insights from field experts and covers fabrication processes of materials and their utilization in all critical therapeutic and diagonostic dental applications such as prevention, implants, regeneration, restoration and repair.
Innovative nanomaterials lead the way for the development of advanced dental treatments by enabling the widespread use of biomimetic materials that can closely imitate the structure of natural tooth and bones. The applications of nanostructures, which are capable of synergizing the regenerative processes of the body such as restoration of alveolar bone or tooth structure, are now shifting to clinical practice.
The book discusses in detail about the potential extra-oral or intra-oral use of novel technologies and materials for the regeneration, replacement, fixation and restoration of soft and hard tissues in and around the craniofacial region and oral cavity. It covers new dental nanotechnologies, including the strategies of drug delivery and tissue engineering, use of novel biomimetic materials, organic and inorganic materials.
Nanodiagnostics in microbiology and dentistry, carbon nanotubes in cancer therapy and drug delivery, nanoparticulate drug delivery systems for oral cancer treatment, nanocharacterisation techniques for dental implant development, nanoindentation techniques for the determination of mechanical properties of materials in dentistry and nano-apatitic composite scaffolds for stem cell delivery and bone tissue engineering are some of the topics covered in the book.
