Department of Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics

Department of Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics

Orthodontics is that speciality of Dentistry that deals with the prevention and correction of dental and facial irregularities. The common problems which require an Orthodontist’s intervention are proclination, crowding, spacing between teeth, extra or missing teeth, cleft lip and palate and other irregularities of the jaws. Orthodontic treatment may be focused on dental displacement only, or it could deal with the control and/or modification of facial growth. In the latter case, it is better defined as “Dentofacial Orthopedics”. It is also within the scope of Orthodontists to diagnose, evolve treatment plans and treat conditions requiring Orthognathic Surgeries along with the Oral Surgeons for the correction of severe jaw abnormalities.


Use of latest and state-of-the-art equipments and appliances in our department ensures that the treatment provided is of the highest standards following stringent aseptic protocols. An average of 450 – 500 patients are seen every month. We have started over 1000 patients and the department has an exhaustive waiting list of over 3000 patients.

 

Removable, fixed as well as functional appliances are used to treat various kinds of dental and skeletal malocclusions. In addition, special cases like cleft lip and palate and with severe skeletal discrepancy are treated with a multi-disciplinary approach.

 

The department boasts of faculty who have notable contributions like having been awarded gold medals, been invited as speakers at National and International Forums, published books and articles in National and International Journals. There is a constant and focused endeavor to utilize the latest methods and technology in teaching and learning. Research initiatives by staff are encouraged and the department is getting geared up to start the Post Graduate facility shortly.
