Biosmart dentistry, Fluoride release, Smart materials


Dental materials are stable and have greater durability if they do not react with the environment and remain passive. At the same time, it is hoped that the materials will be well accepted and will cause neither harm nor injury. This is an entirely negative approach to material tolerance and biocompatibility. This 
outlook hides the possibility through which positive gains can be achieved by using materials that behave in a more dynamic fashion in the environment in which they are placed. The current dental materials are improvised. The use of smart materials has made a great revolution in dentistry, which includes the use of restorative materials, such as smart composites, smart ceramics, compomers, resin-modified glass ionomer, amorphous calcium phosphate–releasing pit, and fissure sealants and other materials, such as orthodontic shape memory alloys, smart burs, etc.
