New Book Published by Elsevier: Emerging Nanotechnologies for Dentistry – Professes, Materials and Applications by K. Subramani and W. Ahmed

Emerging Nanotechnologies in Dentistry

Dr Karthikeyan Subramani, Department of Orthodontics, University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY, USA

Prof Waqar Ahmed, Institute of Nanotechnology and Bioengineering, University of Central Lancashire, Preston, UK.

I am delighted to announce the publication of our new book in 2012. I am particularly honours by the foreword to the book written by Prof Sir Harold Kroto FRS Nobel Laureate. Sir Harold won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his discovery of a new carbon allotrope C60 along with Robert Curl and Richard Smalley. He is the Francis Eppes Professor of Chemistry at the Florida State University, which he joined in 2004; prior to that he spent a large part of his career at the University of Sussex, where he holds an emeritus professorship.

New nanomaterials are leading to a range of emerging dental treatments that utilize more biomimetic materials that more closely duplicate natural tooth structure (or bone, in the case of implants). The use of nanostructures that will work in harmony with the body’s own regenerative processes (eg, to restore tooth structure or alveolar bone) are moving into clinical practice. This book brings together an international team of experts from the fields of nanomaterials, biomedical engineering and dentistry, to cover the new materials and techniques with potential for use intra-orally or extra-orally for the restoration, fixation, replacement, or regeneration of hard and soft tissues in and about the oral cavity and craniofacial region. New dental nanotechnologies include the use of advanced inorganic and organic materials, smart and biomimetic materials, tissue engineering and drug delivery strategies.
