Dr. Ryan Nolan
Dr. Ryan Nolan was featured on episode 21 and 22 of the Dental Digest Podcast. Dr. Nolan was formerly the chief scientist at Novus Research. He was also a formulation specialist at Maple Mountain. He founded Elementa Silver. Elementa Silver harnesses silver nanoparticles to improve oral health. He received his DMD from Midwestern University.
Dr. Nolan and his team created the Theban Publishing House. The Theban promise is to encourage and promote authorship, while providing the best author experience process.
He has published the following articles: Remineralization Potential of a Novel Silver Nanoparticle Rinse on Severely Demineralized Enamel In-vitro: A 14-Day Trial. Preventative Agents: The Multiple Uses of Silver Nanoparticles in Dentistry. Cytotoxicity of novel plant-based silver nanoparticles on fibroblasts for use in dental and medical applications. Anti-caries potential of silver nanoparticles via modulation of free calcium activity within the plaque fluid of the oral biofilm: a pilot study.
Abstract from Dr. Nolan’s recent publication Preventative Agents: The Multiple Uses of Silver Nanoparticles in Dentistry: “As nanomaterials increasingly become available for use in dentistry, one of the most intriguing topics is silver nanoparticle (AgNP) utilization for preventative and clinical applications. Many studies have pointed to not only the antimicrobial effects of these small particles, including their ability to kill oral pathogens, but also their use in oral care and restorative dentistry. This article describes multiple aspects of the use of nanotechnology, and specifically highlights how silver nanoparticles are being incorporated into the field of dentistry.”
