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

Oral Implantology is the department of dentistry that deals with either permanent or artificial attachment of a prosthetic device to the bone of the jaw or skull. During the last decade, oral implantology has become an absolutely necessary part of mainstream dentistry, which helps the dentists to improve the quality of life worldwide. Modern implants consist of an osseous (bone-like) part that interacts with the bone which could be a trans-mucosal component that interacts with the mucosa and helps in restoration; for example, crown or bridge abutment, or anchors for dentures. The materials used as implants include pure form of titanium, titanium alloys or infrequently ceramic materials  (e.g. zirconium dioxide or aluminum oxide). The recent developments in dental implantology like Digital Impression techniques that are used in intra-oral scanning; which helps the manufacturer to fabricate a working, articulated model (preparation of Implants) based on the digital image of a tooth. Currently, many researches are going on the optimization of the implant design as well as the surface characterization for the more frequent use of ceramic dental implants.
