Small things have a big impact and so is nanotechnology. Nanotechnology refers to the control and manipulation of matter at nanometer dimension. It is extreme diverse, ranging from extensions of conventional device physics to completely new approaches based upon molecular assembly, from developing new materials with dimensions on nanoscale to investigating whether we can directly control matter on atomic scale. Nanotechnology and its application in periodontics have improved the diagnosis, treatment, prognosis and prevention of the periodontal diseases. It utilizes nanobiotechnology, nanomaterials, and nanorobots for the treatment and maintenance of periodontal health. When we gain access to hold the nanorobots, we will be able to treat very rapidly a number of diseases that are a continuous threat for mankind today. Although the achievement of the goal of complete regeneration of the periodontal tissues could not be possible for many years. Recent developments in nanomaterials and nanotechnology have provided a promising insight into the commercial applications of nanomaterials in the management of periodontal diseases. Various materials structured in nanoscales and nanomaterials are developed to form an ideal scaffold interfaces with the tissues which provide new horizon in periodontal therapy. The present article aims to provide an early glimpse on the impact and future implication, potential use and phenomenon of nanotechnology as applied to periodontics.
