Cosmetic Dentistry is a study as well as practice which generally are referred to as improving the aesthetic of teeth so that when a person laughs happily, he is able to spread happiness all around his surroundings without being conscious.

(2) Orthodontia which is also known as orthodontics and dent facial orthopedics is also a component of the field of dentistry. This practice is an activity which can only be performed by a specialist who has successfully undergone a special training in a dental school or college after they have attained their graduation degree in the field of dentistry.

A dental implant is a surgical component that mates with the bone of the jaw or skull to support the dental prosthesis like the denture, crown as well as the bridge. Also, the facial prosthesis is included; it is known to act as an orthodontic anchor. The process for modern dental implants is a biologic process with the name of osseointegration. In this, the different materials, such as titanium, join a bond to bone. The implant fixture is first placed, so that it osseointegrates, then a dental prosthetic is added. A variable amount of healing time is required for osseointegration before the dental prosthetic (a tooth, bridge or denture) is attached to the place where the implant is placed which will hold a dental prosthetic.
