Future of dentistry has become one of the most unique resources and providers of this oral systemic approach. In determining the patient's unique needs, it is becoming increasingly important for the dentist to work with other cutting-edge, integrative practitioners to fully assess the individual requirements of the patient before, during, and after dental care. Witnessing the beginning of truly groundbreaking advances in technology is a rare opportunity. Skepticism is a natural reaction when we are presented with a radically new method and its potential uses. Skepticism helps us filter the valuable from the worthless, the permanent from the ephemeral, and the rational from the preposterous. The present article describes a brief review on some of the breakthrough advances in dentistry regarding tissue engineering, nanodentistry and ozone therapy.

Key words: Nanodentistry, ozone therapy, tissue engineering.
