Department Of Periodontology And Implantology
What We Do In This Department?
Each person’s smile is different… but every attractive smile has two things in common: A full set of pearly white teeth, and the right amount of healthy pink gum tissue ( Supporting structure of teeth) to show them off. Periodontics is that specialty of dentistry which encompasses the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the supporting and surrounding tissues of the teeth or their substitutes; the replacement of lost teeth and supporting structures by regeneration, tissue engineering, implantation of natural and/or synthetic devices and materials; and the maintenance of the health, function and esthetics of these tissues and structures.Periodontists are sometimes called “the plastic surgeons of dentistry.” Like conventional plastic surgeons, they can use various techniques to remodel soft tissue, and even reshape bone in the jaw. Our department has clinics for students. A separate sterilization room, looks for the overall sterilization , disinfection of instruments and materials.The department has a good patient inflow, on an average aboutmorethan 40 patients visit the department for treatment daily.
