Periodontitis is one of the most common diseases involving tooth and its supporting structures. Management of periodontitis is important for improvement of quality of life of the patient that ultimately has its impact on the overall health of an individual. Nanotechnology has evolved as a promising mode of treatment with upsurge of various treatment methodologies for the treatment of periodontitis. Nanotechnology has proven to be a reliable technology in dentistry as it provides different types of innovative nanomaterials which can be used in a variety of dental treatment options. A systematic search was conducted using Medline, PubMed, Scopus, and Google Scholar up to and including the year 2014, to identify relevant studies. All cross-reference lists of the selected studies were also screened. The inclusion criteria were articles in English or those having a detailed summary in English, published between 2000 and 2014. Review, case reports, abstracts, letters to editors, and editorials were excluded. In vivo studies were excluded from this systematic review. This paper will help the reader to understand nanoscience and the benefits and limitations of nanotechnology in periodontics by addressing its ethical, social, and health implications.
