Dental caries and periodontal diseases are common chronic infectious diseases that cause serious damage to oral health. Bacteria is the primary factor leading to such conditions. As a dental plaque control method, chemotherapeutic agents face serious challenges in dental care because of the specific physiological and anatomical characteristics of the oral cavity. Nanodrug delivery system is a series of new drug delivery systems at nanoscale, and it can target cells, promote sustained-release effects, and enhance biodegradation. This review focuses on research progress on nanodrug delivery systems for pre-vention and control of dental caries and periodontal diseases.

Key words: nanodrug delivery system, dental caries, periodontal diseases, dental plaque, nanoparticles
