Department of Conservative dentistry and Endodontics is committed to the vision of our University in providing an excellent academic and research ambience for students and members of the faculties to inherit professional competence along with human dignity and values to serve the society.
Conservative Dentistry & Endodontics, being one of the oldest branches of dental sciences, has witnessed significant advancements and transformations over the past five decades. These developments have revolutionized the scope of the subject, elevating it to the realm of advanced research and clinical practice. The speciality of Conservative Dentistry & Endodontics holds a pivotal role in dentistry, contributing significantly to contemporary clinical practice. Our department encompasses two distinct specialties: Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics.
Conservative Dentistry focuses on the preservation, treatment, and rehabilitation of diseased, defective, or infected teeth. It also encompasses cosmetic/aesthetic corrections, emphasizing the protection of natural dentition. Within our department, we offer a range of esthetic treatment procedures, such as smile design and tooth whitening, at subsidized rates. Additionally, we provide other conservative treatment procedures, including indirect esthetic restorations, veneers, inlays, onlays, porcelain crowns, and composite restorations.
Endodontics specializes in root canal treatment, endodontic surgery, and related therapies. We offer endodontic treatment to patients with pulpal diseases, utilizing various procedures such as root canal treatments, hemisections, splinting, perforation repair, periapical surgery, and more.
Our department excels in effectively performing these treatment procedures, aiming to restore natural smiles and optimal oral function for our patients. Since 1997, we have been pioneers in offering a postgraduate course, which has gained recognition for providing exceptional clinical exposure. With a substantial number of outpatient cases, second only to the Government Dental College, our postgraduate course sets a high standard. Equipped with state-of-the-art instruments and materials, including the Carl Zeiss Dental Operating Microscope with Mora Interface, our department ensures students receive the highest quality education from our dedicated faculty, who are committed to shaping them into proficient professionals.
We have well-equipped facilities, including the latest equipment and materials, a sterilization room, reception area, laboratory, store room, seminar room, and separate clinics for both undergraduate and postgraduate courses. A specialized clinic for Endodontic surgery, furnished with a dental operating microscope, further enhances our capabilities.
Our educational focus encompasses vital aspects of private dentistry, addressing the areas where dentists spend the majority of their time. As a result, we bear a significant responsibility in producing world-class students in these areas. Our staff members are highly trained to impart the latest knowledge to students and supervise them in the clinical setting, guiding them in the utilization of modern techniques in dentistry.
