Department Of Periodontiology

Periodontology is the specialty of dentistry that deals with the health and diseases of the structure surrounding the teeth including gingiva (gums) and alveolar bone that holds the teeth.

At the Department of Periodontology, we believe that “prevention is better than cure”. A lot of emphases is placed on preventive measures like oral hygiene instructions, brushing techniques and various other methods to remove inter-dental plaque. A vast majority of the general population suffers from gum disease and simple procedures like cleaning and removal of plaque and calculus from the tooth surface by various methods such as scaling, curettage, root planning, and polishing are required. There is an adequate number of staff and facilities available at the Department of Periodontology to provide this basic periodontal healthcare. In patients with established periodontal disease surgical procedures, including gingivectomies, gingivoplasties and flap surgery are also performed.

The department of Periodontology also provides services for more advanced surgical procedures like bone augmentation, bone grafting and replacement of lost/ missing teeth with dental implants. The department is equipped with state of the art facilities to provide high quality of treatment.
