Poster summary

Quantum Dots (QDs) are revolutionizing dental technology with their unique optical and electronic properties. These nanoscale semiconductor particles offer exceptional benefits in imaging, tissue engineering, and drug delivery systems. In dentistry, QDs stimulate tissue growth, enhance healing processes, and promote dental tissue regeneration. They can be integrated into drug delivery systems for enhanced therapeutic outcomes. QDs also possess antimicrobial properties, making them effective against multi-drug-resistant bacteria. Their applications in dental diagnostics, preventive dentistry, and regenerative medicine show promising prospects for the future of oral healthcare. With high quantum yield, photostability, and adjustable optical features, Quantum Dots outperform traditional materials, providing brighter and longer-lasting fluorescence for improved diagnostics and treatment planning in dentistry.
