Abstract Nano-hydroxyapatite (nano-HA) is a material with multiple uses due to its biocompatibility and its resemblance to the nonorganic bone structure. It is used in various dental domains such as implantology, surgery, periodontology, esthetics and prevention. The aim of this study is to provide a wide understanding of nano-HA and to promote treatments based on nanomaterials in dentistry. A search in two data bases, Scopus, and PubMED, was conducted over a 5 years period. We chose a 5 years… 
Dental Applications of Systems Based on Hydroxyapatite Nanoparticles—An Evidence-Based Update
The role of HAnps in dentistry, including recent advances in the field of its use, as well as their advantages of using it as a component in other dental materials, whether experimental or commercially available are investigated.
An Overview of Synthesis Based Biomedical Applications of Hydroxyapatite Nanomaterials
This review article aims to correlate some simplistic and cost-effective biosynthetic approaches of nano-HAp, its properties, characterization techniques, and its size and morphology-dependent biomedical applications.
In Vivo and In Vitro Analyses of Titanium-Hydroxyapatite Functionally Graded Material for Dental Implants
Ti-HA FGM contributes to the osteogenesis of dental implants in vivo and in vitro and is aimed at fabricating a Ti- HA FGM with superior mechanical and biological properties for dental implantation.
Hydroxyapatite Formation on Coated Titanium Implants Submerged in Simulated Body Fluid
Among these coatings, the quaternized titanium nitride coating seemed to have a better yield of HA, which was calculated through mass comparisons and observed using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive analysis x-rays (EDX).
Role of Biomaterials Used for Periodontal Tissue Regeneration—A Concise Evidence-Based Review
A comprehensive review focuses initially on bone graft replacement substitutes, namely ceramic-based (calcium phosphate derivatives, bioactive glass) and autologous platelet concentrates, which assist in alveolar bone regeneration.
Osseodensification enables bone healing chambers with improved low-density bone site primary stability: an in vivo study
It was possible to conclude that the osseodensification technique allowed a wider implant bed preparation without prejudice on primary stability and bone remodeling.
Nanotechnology interventions as a putative tool for the treatment of dental afflictions
This review primarily focuses on the types of nanotechnological interventions explored for various dental afflictions and has attempted to enlighten the readers about the practical aspects of nanotherapeutics for dental disease, that is, a journey from laboratory to product commercialization.
The Impact of Dental Implant Surface Modifications on Osseointegration and Biofilm Formation
Currently available implant surface modifications commonly used in implantology are discussed in terms of their impact on osseointegration and biofilm formation, which is critical for clinicians to choose the most suitable materials to improve the success and survival of implantation.


Nano-hydroxyapatite in oral care cosmetics: characterization and cytotoxicity assessment
This study clarifies the issues raised by SCCS and it concludes that this specific nano-hydroxyapatite is cytocompatible, as these nanoparticles did not alter the normal behaviour of the cells and are safe to be used in oral care products.

Dentinal tubule occluding capability of nano‐hydroxyapatite; The in‐vitro evaluation
It was assessed that pure and 1% F−doped materials may be used as an active ingredient in dentin hypersensitivity agents and seem to resistant to hydrolic deletion.
Current perspectives regarding the application and incorporation of silver nanoparticles into dental biomaterials
The studies that are reviewed are largely in favor of nanotechnology and nanostructured materials, highlighting their qualities and enhancements they bring to the field of dentistry.
Prevention of dental erosion of a sports drink by nano-sized hydroxyapatite in situ study.
The sports drink containing 0.25% nano-HA was effective in preventing dental erosion in situ and decreased the tooth surface microhardness, which was decreased by 80% between the baseline and the 10th day.
Analysis of human alveolar osteoblast behavior on a nano-hydroxyapatite substrate: an in vitro study
The increased expression of BMPs and osteoinductive biomarkers suggest that nano-hydroxyapatite may stimulate the proliferation and differentiation of localAlveolar osteoblasts and thus encourage bone regeneration at sites of alveolar bone regeneration.
The soft tissue immunologic response to hydroxyapatite-coated transmucosal implant surfaces: a study in humans.
Nano-hydroxyapatite-coated surfaces in the transmucosal region yielded similar inflammatory response and is suggested to be as biocompatible as commercially pure titanium surfaces.
Review of nanomaterials in dentistry: interactions with the oral microenvironment, clinical applications, hazards, and benefits.
Overall, the clinical benefits generally outweigh the hazards of using ENMs in the oral cavity, and the latter should not prevent the responsible innovation of nanotechnology in dentistry.
Nanoparticulate zinc oxide as a coating material for orthopedic and dental implants.
Findings indicate that zinc oxide nanoparticles (nZnO) can, on its own, provide an optimal coating for future bone implants that are both antimicrobial and biocompatible.
