Periodontics is the specialty that deals with the diseases of the supporting tissues of the tooth and prevention of their occurrence. It also manages aesthetic problems caused by lost periodontal structures and aims to restore the same. Periodontists play a key role in diagnosis and treatment planning of oral disease. An extensive understanding of the progression of periodontal diseases gives us the edge while predicting the prognosis of affected teeth as the success of the dental treatment plan is heavily dependent on the health of the periodontium. Hence, the role of a Periodontist is indispensable to dental practice!
The department has separate undergraduate and postgraduate sections equipped with modern dental chairs fitted with ultrasonic scalers. Advanced surgical equipment like sinus augmentation kits, microsurgical unit, ultrasonic bone surgical unit, digital centrifuge machine for regenerative procedures, laser unit, digital intra oral radiographs (RVG) and diverse implant surgical kits are the additional highlights of the department. Our library is stocked with an array of journals with back volumes spreading over two decades.
