PERIODONTICS AND IMPLANTOLOGY

course

The term periodontium arises from Greek word “Peri” meaning around and “Odont” meaning tooth thus it can be defined as the tissue investing and supporting the teeth. The branch of Periodontology consists of periodontics and implantology. Periodontics deals with the study and preservation of periodontium, whereas in implantology we deal with the meticulous fixed replacement of already lost teeth. The branch also has a vital role in preventive measures of periodontal diseases by educating, motivating and instructing the community at different levels.The department is well equipped with all the routine and advanced surgical armamentarium.
