Department of Periodontology

Periodontology is related to the study of tissues and structures present around the tooth. It refers basically to the management / treatment of patients with diseases of the gums and the structure supporting the teeth. Patients are seen for advice, diagnosis and treatment which is provided as per departmental triage and screening services. 

Screening services ensure that the patient spends as little time as possible to confirm about the presence of periodontal diseases and to affirm whether further management is warranted.

The department provides care and treatment for patients accepted with periodontal disorders and those with teeth that are soon to be extracted or have been extracted. There is a strong focus of putting patients at the core of department’s educational activities, such that the disease presentation often forms part of prospective research questions or undergraduate student discussions.  

The department has a strong reputation in regards to recognizing the holistic approach to dental treatment. The patient care is integrated as part of the full treatment plan to ensure uninterrupted care with healthy periodontal support. 

The periodontology department provides consultation and joint multidisciplinary consults :

    Daily oral prophylaxis procedures
