Dental nurses are dental care professionals that provide assistance and support for clinical and non-clinical aspects of patient care. A dental nurse is able to work in all branches of dentistry like general dental practice and hospital and community services. Roles and responsibilities of dental nurses include: Performing infection control and decontamination procedures, handling dental materials, maintaining dental equipment and instruments and providing administrative support. Dental nurses should maintain ethical behavior for the profession, for the patient and for the community. Ethically, dental nurses should be motivated to maintain honor and integrity of the profession and support the dentist in proper patient treatment and welfare of the community. Dental nurse should perform only those dental works which they are entitled to perform. For the patients, the nurses should safeguard the welfare of patient regardless of sex, creed, race, economic standards, etc. Since patients are in close contact with the nurses, it is important for nurses to follow high ethical standards.
The embodiment of general wellbeing dentistry lies in the way that the range concentrates on a group or populace all in all and not singular patients. General wellbeing dental specialists work towards advancement of general oral and dental soundness of their groups. They teach patients to adjust to practices that may help enhance their general dental wellbeing over the long haul.

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.

Dental Pain or Tooth Ache in and around the teeth is common problem for patients having poor oral hygiene or who have undergone dental procedures. Common problems associated with poor oral hygiene are dental caries, pulpitis, periapical abscess and trauma. Complications include sinusitis which results from untreated maxillary infection; and cavernous sinus thrombosis. These conditions require proper attention as they are life threatening. Complications after dental procedures are common and include dry socket, osteomyelitis, bleeding and osteonecrosis of jaw. Treatments for these complications include antibiotics, stitches, scrapping of damaged bones and antibacterial mouth rinses. Recent advancements in treatments include radiofrequency ablation, pain shots, opioids and muscle relaxants.

Dental Surgery is a medical procedure involving artificial modification of teeth and their arrangement in the mouth and includes modification of jaw bones. Based on various reasons people opt for a dental surgery. There are different types of dental surgeries and most common among them is surgical extraction of teeth. Injuries may also warrant surgery which should be performed by a dental specialist in a clinic.
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.
Fiberotomy: Surgical procedure designed to detach the fibres present around the tooth in order to reduce the tendency to relapse of tooth rotations corrected by dental treatments.
Periodontics: Dental specialty which focuses on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases effecting gums and other supporting structures around the teeth.

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.

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
