Author(s): Rashi Gangamwar*, Shweta Sedani and Dolly Gabada
In recent days, spotlight for researchers in biomaterial mainly aims of tissue engineering via initiating various proteins along with body immune cells with bioactive substances. Bioactive glass (BAG) is one of the current biomaterials. Its application in dentistry includes as mineralizing agents, restorative materials, also this material is used in dental implants, root canal treatment, air abrasion and pulp capping. Because of its bioactive qualities, doing wonders by regeneration of hard tissues in dentistry as well as in medicine having variety of clinical applications. The purpose of this review is to give an overview about present applications of bioactive glasses in dentistry.
