Abstract

Plasma-related technologies are essential in modern industries. Recently, plasma has attracted increased
attention in the biomedical field. Non-thermal plasma (NTP) is widely used for various therapeutic
applications in health care. Particularly in dentistry, this paper supplies an essential knowledge of plasma
and a narrative review of plasma uses in restorative dentistry. There have been efforts to use NTP technology
in restorative dentistry involving modifications of dental surfaces, adhesion, treatment of dental caries, and
tooth bleaching. Although various investigations were in the recent stages, the prospective value of NTP
for dental uses has been occured. To extende the scope of plasma approaches and put suitable research to
practical use, interdisciplinary research with the participation of dental professionals is recommended.
