WELCOME to the Department of Periodontology
We are on the 1st Floor of the building (Room No. 202) & generally the 1st department referred to for treatment after diagnosis from the Department of Oral Medicine & Radiology.
There is a strong relationship between periodontal- health and disease & systemic -health and disease. This means a two-way relationship in which periodontal disease in an individual may have powerful influence on individual systemic health or disease as well as a more customary understood role that systemic disease may have an influence on individual periodontal health or disease. There is at present a rapidly increasing evidence which has implicated a variety of systemic diseases such as Diabetes, Ischemic Heart diseases, Pre-term Low Birth babies, Osteoporosis, HIV and Inherent chromosomal disorders as playing an important role in development & progression of periodontal diseases & vice versa. Hence, in our department our faculty emphasizes this fact & makes the patients aware of this inter-relationship during his/her treatment of periodontal disease & motivates the patient in proper oral hygiene maintenance, & also advises in Tobacco cessation.
Procedures done in our Department:
