Background and Aims: The purpose of this study was to investigate the application of nanoparticles in orthodontics.
Materials and Methods: This study was conducted using a review method by searching Scopous, Google Scholar and Web of science. Key words (Nano silver, Nano ZnO, Nano Chitosan, Nano Curcumin and Nanoparticles) were used. These searches were limited to the English ariticles after the year 2010.
Conclusion: According to the published studies, silver nanoparticles, curcumin, titanium oxide, chitosan, zinc oxide, quaternary ammonium derivatives exhibit appropriate antibacterial properties. Further studies are recommended to investigate the effect of each of these nanoparticles on the bond strength. In order to reduce the decay, there is lack of evidences regarding the addition of ACP nanoparticles and nanoparticles of calcium- phosphate and fluoride. Therefore, further studies are recommended. Studies have shown that the addition of zinc oxide nanoparticles to orthodontic wires could reduce the friction between the wire and the bracket. While, adding titanium oxide nanoparticles to bracket increased the friction. Although, evidences in this regard are inadequate but it seems that nanoparticulates are less toxic than conventional materials.aa
