Department of Periodontology
Our Department of Periodontology treats patients with poor oral hygiene and helps them restore their oral health. We have been striving to educate the masses about the importance of oral health. With an increase in the life span of the population and several co morbidities that increase the severity of Periodontal disease, we have an opportunity to serve the community. The Department of Periodontology has challenges ahead would be to ensure that the aging population is educated about periodontal health and dental implants.
In addition to our routine procedures, we have performed several special procedures like Connective tissue grafts, Free gingival grafts, Regenerative procedures using bone grafts and GTR membranes.We have also used platelet concentrates for regeneration. We have placed several dental implants in the last academic year.
