Introduction/Context/Diagnosis

Background: Nanotechnology advances have been changing the face of dentistry with its diverse range of dental applications. Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) is a relatively newer breakthrough in dentistry. AgNPs, an antimicrobial agent have been incorporated into various biomaterials in order to reduce the biofilm formation and lends a cariostatic effect thus giving a biomimetic.

Aim: This systematic review is aimed to provide an overview of Silver nanopartiocle application in dentistry and its roles as a biomimetic agent in preventing various oral diseases.

Methods/Treatment Plan

Literature search was done using PubMed and Scopus database between 2010 to 2020 on nanomaterials for dental applications and was systematical and critically reviewed . Accordingly, this review will focus on the current status and the future implications of silver nanoparticle technology in preventive and adhesive dentistry.

Results/Outcome

Literature search revealed 322 articles on silver nanoparticles in Pubmed and 19 in Scopus. After eliminating the duplicates and additional filtering a total of 9 randomized control trials were reviewed . Silver nanoparticles due to its excellent biological and mechanical advantage can be incorporated in various dental materials either alone or with other nanoparticles for restorative dentistry, in orthodontics, in oral hygiene maintenance, in endodontics, in oral implants and bone regeneration.

Significance/Conclusions

Prospective clinical and randomized control studies are required to know the long term beneficial and toxic effects of this material and its biomimetic effectiveness as a therapeutic agent
