They aren't now using them. This isn't on the market yet. Mind you, in most of the US dentists still aren't using advances that were brought to market in the mid-80s, so don't get too excited unless you live in a big coastal city and have a lot of money.

Smells like BS to me, like ions in your hair dryer. You can't see it work, so just trust us.

I blame Obama. This is obviously part of the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.

I'm sensing a little anti-dentism here. Do you think they should have their own schools?

That's cool, but when you nanosize it, who can say it doesn't turn homeopathetic? Maybe I didn't RTFA closely enough, but I didn't see any study showing its effectiveness. Just talk of an "invention".

That's just the first peer-reviewed Google hit for "silver nanopartices antibacterial". There are many, many more.

This guy knows about nanobots in your skull, and how to make an airplane with them. Call him JC Dentist.
