Surface-modifying biomaterials have the potential to improve both the performance and durability of dental implantable products that are currently in use. Dental implants' surfaces may be modified to improve their biocompatibility and other biologically significant characteristics using metal and metal oxide nanoparticle coatings. The toxicity of the materials used in the synthesis, the requirement for high temperature and energy, and the high cost are just a few of the factors that restrict the use of the various physical and chemical methods for the synthesis of metal nanoparticles. Though, these restrictions can be overcome by developing substitute synthetic approaches that are similar to Green Synthesis and have proven to be more eco-friendly and less toxic, including the use of algae, microorganisms, and plants. Metal ions can be readily reduced into nanoparticles by plants' biomolecules, secondary metabolites, and coenzymes. Although still in its infancy, the use of metal nanoparticles produced through green synthesis in dental implants has the potential to open up new avenues for enhancing the caliber of these goods.
