A variety of materials and drugs have been used in dental care to protect the oral cavity from microbial activities, particularly the formation of dental biofilms. These compounds have the potential to be harmful to the human body. Despite these challenges, nanotechnology applications in dentistry have been developed and used with some success in the improvement of restorative materials. It also focuses on several problematic parts of dental care, like oral biofilm communities, and also how nanotechnology may assist overcome these obstacles. Nanoparticles (NPs) are frequently used in the medical sector for a numerous application, and investigations have already shown that NPs have antimicrobial effects. The extensive utilization of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) has raised their consumption. Nanotechnology has been used effectively in the development of restorative materials in dentistry. Traditional AgNPs production methods require the use of toxic chemicals and dangerous solvents. There is a need for novel approaches for synthesizing AgNPs that use environmentally friendly agents and fluids. It really is important to look for suitable production settings in order to validate a good AgNP synthesis. Green techniques are the most commonly used in this industry since they are both environmentally friendly and economically effective. Biological NPs generated from fungal secretions. Biological NPs synthesized from fungal secretions or extracts are used in safe synthesis because they outperform chemical procedures. The objective of this review paper is to understand the role of fungal AgNPs as antimicrobial agents in dentistry, mainly in the reduction of oral biofilm communities.
