  • Abstract

    The aim of this comprehensive review is to highlight the importance of bacterial biofilm in root canal and role of nanoparticles (NPs) in disinfection of the canal. The widespread recognition of microbial biofilm as the contributory factor for human infection and constant increase in antimicrobial resistance warrants the discovery of a reliable and effective antimicrobial strategy to infectious diseases. The success rate of the endodontically treated tooth highly depends on the complete removal of the bacterial biofilm from the root canal. This eventually brought about various NPs to improve the root canal disinfection. NPs with its unique properties have led research toward new prospects in treating and preventing dental infections. This review article focuses on the scientific knowledge about the various developments of NPs which is used to disinfect the root canal.
