“Big value of Small particles: A Paradigm Shift Awaits Endodontics”

Endodontic technologies and biomaterials have witnessed significant advances in the last decade. In spite of these advances, some of the integral limitations in endodontic treatment still persist. Development of minimally invasive techniques that predictably disinfect the infected teeth, reverse disease mediated changes in dentin, improve mechanical characteristics of dentin and promote biologically based treatment will have the potential to shift the current paradigm in endodontic therapy. Bioactive nanoparticles have received significant interest in biomedicine and health care industry in the recent times. These nanoparticles exhibit unique physical as well as biological characteristics. They may also be modified for different tissue-specific functions. This lecture will cover the application of multifunctional nanoparticles for functional tissue engineering strategies on teeth with apical periodontitis


  1. Will learn the basics of bioactive nanoparticles
  2. Will learn the benefits of nanoparticle based treatment strategies in the treatment of infected teeth
  3. Will receive an update on the application of nanoparticles for regenerative endodontics.
