Department Of Oral Medicine

Oral medicine is the specialty of dentistry concerned with the oral health care of patients with chronic, recurrent and medically related disorders of the oral and maxillofacial region, and with their diagnosis and non-surgical management.
Oral medicine acts a focus for specialist interdisciplinary care of patients with symptoms arising from the mouth that do not relate directly to teeth. These symptoms are often chronic and may have a significant psychological, as well as physical impact on the patient’s quality of life. In some instances, symptoms and signs reflect local problems restricted to the mouth. However, symptoms and signs can represent oral manifestations of more widespread disease.
RCD department of Oral medicine aims at providing the best care and treatment to patients with orofacial ailments. We also facilitate students to efficiently diagnose and treat a condition pertaining to orofacial regions such as oral ulcers, oral lesions, facial pains, TMJ disorders, salivary gland disorders and other oral manifestations of systemic diseases.
