Abstract

The science and engineering that is conducted at the nanoscale is termed nanotechnology. In this, the materials that are used have components smaller than 100 nm in at least one dimension. Such materials are called nanomaterials and may include clus­ters, fibers, grains, nanoholes, or a combination of these forms. The surface area of such particles is increased and as a result, the material’s chemical, physical as well as optical properties get improved [1]. Nanotechnology is emerging as an interdisci­plinary field and has brought about a remarkable paradigm shift in medicine and dentistry [2].
