Abstract: The three states of matter that exists are solid liquid and gaseous state. Apart from these three stages yet another category of matter is called as plasma. The universe is mostly made up of plasma and exists as the highest quantity of matter. Plasma is a natural phenomenon and can be seen in the polar areas in the form of Aurora borealis, northern lights and can be artificially created. A variant of plasma called the non-thermal plasma or cold atmospheric plasma is readily used in the field of biomedicine these days. The temperature of application is less than 104°F. Cold Atmospheric Plasma can be used in the field of dentistry and has a wide horizon of applications.
