 Department Overview

Periodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the supporting structures of the tooth. As a speciality, with advances in material sciences, microbiological breakthroughs and technical refinement, it has gained enormous clinical relevance and importance and is a highly sought after branch for pursuing higher studies. Modern methods of surgical treatment such as the employment of Bone grafts, GTR, Growth factors, Ridge augmentation, Implants, and local drug delivery systems are implemented here to ensure the longevity of the periodontium and the dentition.

Established in 2003, the department is located in the first floor of the institution (Room no 101). It houses an Undergraduate Section, Postgraduate section, staff rooms, sterilization bay, a minor OT, Seminar room and library. Screening of patients for diabetes is being done daily, since its inception in September 2012. We take pride in stating that the Post graduate students are trained in Laser associated surgical procedures, Piezosurgicalprocedures ,Mucogingival surgical procedures and Implant placement in addition to the regular Periodontal flap surgeries. The Undergraduates are groomed to understand the speciality better with Seminars and Clinical demonstrations being undertaken by the staff members for them on a regular basis. Interns are trained to nurture an interest in the subject for higher studies. Overall it is truly an enriching experience for the students when they are here.

Periodontitis is a globally rampant disease involving the supporting structures of the teeth. Periodontics is thus an evergreen speciality which deals with problems and diseases affecting the gums and the tissues surrounding the teeth. It is a multifactorial disease and has been linked to many systemic diseases like Diabetes mellitus, Coronary artery disease and Rheumatoid arthritis. Thus this speciality has gained enormous clinical relevance and importance and is sought after by students for their post graduate studies.

The cornerstone of periodontal treatment is the removal of plaque which is accomplished by scaling and root planing which is performed both by hand and ultrasonic instruments. Other treatments like regenerative and respective procedures are also done like graft and GTR placement, Laser assisted surgical procedures, Peizosurgical procedures, Implants, ridge augmentation procedures and local delivery of antimicrobial agents to ensure that the periodontium reverts to a healthy state, thus improving the oral health of the patient.
