Dental products can be classified into various subcategories like diagnostics, drugs and pharmaceuticals, equipment and materials, whitening products, etc. Over the counter products include toothpaste, powered toothbrushes, manual toothbrushes, mouthwashes. The quality of treatment depends on the quality of product used for the treatment. Marketing is key to success for any business, and dentistry is not exception to that. Because of the boom in information technology, general dental patients are more aware of the options available to them; this makes marketing a challenge for both manufacturing companies and dentists for their respective products and services. Some platforms and methods used by manufacturing companies and dentists for marketing include: Website, search engine optimization, online reputation management and branding.
In recent years, research in science and modern dentistry has been driven by developments in dental biomaterials science. A biomaterial is any substance or drug that has been designed to interact with a biological system for a therapeutic or medical cause. With the development of any new biocompatible materials, it can be used for the improvement of the presently existing materials characteristics that can in turn broaden the applications of biomaterials in dentistry field. The most commonly used biomaterials including dentin bonding, luting agent, glass ionomers and ceramics require a better understanding in multidisciplinary approach, for the development of new desi oral hard tissues regeneration. The Dental Biomaterials are targeted to treatment in dental enamel, dentine, dental pulp, periodontium, bone, oral, soft tissues, regeneration, arresting dental caries, enamel and dentine remineralization, repairing congenital defects (cleft lip and palate), enhancing dento-facial aesthetics.

3D Imaging is one of the most significant tools for orthodontists to evaluate and record size and form of craniofacial structures. Orthodontists regularly use 2-dimensional (2D) static imaging procedures, but deepness of structures cannot be acquired and restricted with 2D imaging. Three-dimensional (3D) imaging has been developed in the early of 1990's and has gained a prized place in dentistry, particularly in orthodontics. In 3D diagnostic imaging, a series of anatomical records is gathered using certain technical equipment, processed by a computer and later presented on a 2D monitor to present the illusion of deepness.
Digital dentistry refers to the use of dental technologies or devices to carry out dental procedures rather than using mechanical or electrical tools. The use of digital dentistry can make carrying out dental procedures more efficient than using mechanical tools.

Dental care is the maintenance of healthy teeth and may refer to: Oral hygiene, the practice of keeping the mouth and teeth clean in order to prevent dental disorders
Lack of Dental Care may cause some accumulate Plaque and tartar lead to a number of problems:
Cavities are holes that damage the structure of teeth.
Gingivitis is swollen, inflamed, and bleeding gums,
Periodontitis is the destruction of the ligaments and bone that support the teeth, often leading to tooth loss and Bad breath (halitosis).
Oral cancers can affect any part of the mouth, but is most commonly found in the tongue, floor of the mouth, lips and cheeks.
Oral health professionals recommend that people look out for red and white patches in their mouths and sores and ulcers that do not heal within two weeks. In most cases, spots in the mouth will be harmless, but it is important not to delay a diagnosis. Oral cancer is cancer of the mouth, including the tongue, cheek, palate, floor of the mouth and lipsOral cancer in smokers is most likely to occur on the side of the tongue and the floor of the mouth. Treatment for oral cancer includes surgery, radiotherapy and tooth extractions.

Prosthodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with the designing, manufacturing, making and fitting of artificial replacements of missing part of the mouth. It also deals with the treatment planning, rehabilitation and maintenance of the oral parts functioning. Prosthodontics has four main branches: Removable prosthodontics; fixed prosthodontics; maxillofacial prosthodontics; and Implant prosthodontics. It is a form of restorative dentistry which deals with the treatment of multiple teeth at one time. Success in prosthodontics treatment requires a strong background in basic and clinical sciences along with excellent theoretical and technical skills as well as effective organizational capabilities. There are much recent advancements like use of CAD/CAM on fixed restoration; laser application in prosthetic dentistry and Stafne’s bone cavity and its utilization incomplete denature retention.
Restorative Dentistry which is also known as Oral Rehabilitation deals with the general dental needs of the oral cavity, the teeth and supporting structures of a patient suffering with initial or recurring decay; wearing a way of tooth structure, discoloration, erosion, abnormal spacing. The objective of restorative dentistry is to work along with dental and surgical specialists to deal with complex treatments like hypodontia, cleft lip, traumatic injuries, oral cancer, etc. In general, resins, glass ionomer cements and amalgam are used as different restorative materials but recently, nanomaterials are used as a major part of restorative dentistry treatment in material synthesis, biomimetic approaches and in tissue engineering.

Oral and maxillofacial surgery includes diagnosis, surgery and treatment of defects, injuries and diseases mainly in the oral hard and soft tissues, head, neck, face and maxillofacial region i.e. jaws and face. Functions of an oral and maxillofacial surgeon may include dental replacements, jaw, oral and facial tumor diagnosis and removal, jaw and facial bone alignment, jaw reconstruction, etc. In the mid-1980s, CO2 Laser was first introduced that gained immense popularity in the field of periodontology mainly because of ease of simultaneous photo-thermal ablation and coagulation. Recent innovations in oral and maxillofacial surgery include trans-oral robotic surgery and titanium miniplates in the field of guided maxillofacial surgery.
Pulpotomy: Removal of a portion of the pulp along with the infected part in order to maintain the vitality of the remaining pulpal tissue.
Pulpectomy: Complete removal of pulp material from the pulp chamber and root canal.
Apicoectomy: Surgical procedure in which removal of tooth’s root tip, preparation of root end cavity and filling of biocompatibility material in it is performed when there is a failure in conventional root canal therapy.
Crowns or Caps: A covering (Crown/Cap) which is used to improve the appearance of tooth and to restore its strength, size and shape.
Veneers: Wafer-thin tooth colored artificial shells designed to cover the front surface of the teeth in order to provide a perfect appearance.
Bridges: A bridge consisting of a pontic along with abutment teeth on both the sides to fill the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
Dentures: Replacement of missing teeth by removable appliances.
Implants and implant-supported prosthesis: Dentures supported by implants on jaw bone in the complete absence of teeth.
Extraction: Removal of damaged or decayed tooth from its bone socket.

Orthodontia is the branch of dentistry that is concerned with the correction, prevention and treatment of the malocclusion, improper bites and crooked teeth as well as abnormalities of the dento-facial region. The main objective of orthodontics can be explained by Jackson’s triad which includes: Structural balance; functional efficiency; and aesthetic harmony. Orthodontics can be performed in three ways by alteration in tooth position, skeletal patter and soft tissue pattern. In the recent advancements of orthodontics, introduction of cone beam CT scanning has proved to be revolutionizing in treatment planning and evaluation. Recently, passive self-ligating brackets are used which have the ability to reduce crowding and eliminating the need for extraction.
Endodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with diseases of dental pulp, tooth root, and encompassing tissue. Teeth are made up of a hard structure enveloping a delicate, living tissue called the pulp. The pulp contains veins, nerves and connective tissues. When the pulp gets infected or inflamed endodontic treatment is necessary to spare the tooth.

Oral microbiology is a science which deals with the oral micro biota and their interactions with the host. Oral bacteria utilize the ecological niche provided by gingival epithelium and tooth surface. Constant monitoring of bacterial colonization and prevention of bacterial invasions is done by the innate host defense system. Increase in bacterial colonization in the oral cavity leads to dental plaques and then causes dental caries and periodontal disease. Lack of oral hygiene and influential factors which effect the structure of microbial community leads to Oral diseases. To identify the main cause for the onset of oral diseases it is essential to understand the oral environment and microbial interactions.
Periodontology is the branch of dentistry that deals with the scientific study, diagnosis and treatment of diseases in the surrounding tissues (Gum, Alveolar mucosa, periodontal ligament, etc.) of teeth. There are various roles played by periodontium like: they resist and optimize the forces generated by speech, mastication and swallowing; adjust the structural changes associated with age and external environment by continuous regeneration and remodeling. Periodontology deals with diseases which can be classified into gingivitis and chronic periodontitis. The common symptoms of gingivitis are redness, edema and bleeding. Chronic periodontitis can cause inflammation and bone loss. These diseases can be treated with periodontal therapy which includes oral hygiene, scaling and root planning and with the usage of antimicrobials.
