One of the existing problems in the field of dentistry
is the use of utilizing materials. Utilizing
materials in dentistry must have high rigidity
and resistance and a beautiful appearance. The
weak formulation of dentistry materials causes
irritation, side effects, and increases the cost of
healthcare. Therefore, farms and organizations
related to dentistry care are trying to produce
highly efficient products. Therefore, in the current
research, we attempted to recognize and
rank the factors that impact on the utilization
of nanotechnology in dentistry by an MCDM
Fuzzy approach. The statistical community of
the present research includes dentists and university
experts, who are active in the field of Nano-
Dentistry in Mazandaran, Dentist College in
Sari . They are selected by the consensus of two
groups. The first group included managers and
superordinate experts of the organization with
32 people for localizing the modeling. In the second
group, five experts as the statistical sample
were selected.
Materials and methods:
The descriptive method and descriptive survey
were used. Therefore, by exploring the scientific
texts, the criteria were recognized, and their reliability
then proved by experts.
By using the screening (decimal-fuzzy), 21 factors
were recognized as important and effective
in the use of nanotechnology in dentistry. To determine
the impact and influence of these factors,
the DEMATEL technique was used.
According to the results, decreasing dental
plaque had the most impact, and the cost of
technology was the most influential factor..
