Nanodentistry is a field of technology that has revolutionized the use of biotechnology at the nanoscale, including tissue engineering and nanorobots. The advancement of science and technology in nanodentisry utilizes nanostructured materials to diagnose, treat, and prevent oral and dental problems, as well as alleviate pain and preserve and improve dental health. Nanodentistry offers a wide range of applications, including dental restorative materials such as dental nanocomposites, nanofillings, nanobonding systems, nanometals, and nanometallic alloys. However, the workplace exposure and health hazards of nanodentistry have to be assessed in terms of manufacturing exposure, toxicology of nanoparticles, biological and environmental impact, recyclability, and sustainability. Dental nanomaterials are yet to be studied for true breakthrough characteristics rather than a booming marketing technique for promised improved material properties. Hence, the increased efficiency of nanomaterials must be tested over time with robust scientific proof in clinical and real-world settings. For safer production, judicious utilization, and a higher quality of life for humans and other ecosystem components, an interdisciplinary effort of scientists, researchers, policymakers, safety officers, and environmental engineers, as well as their analysis in various aspects, are addressed in the work.
