Following specialities are functional now:- department of dentistry is presently dealing with all sorts of dental and oral diseases, malformations, traumas and preventive measures with special attention to the following :-

  1. Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopaedics- deals with correction of irregularities of teeth and disproportionate growth of the jaw in young growing individuals and caters to esthetic correction. The speciality provides all latest modalities with invisible ceramics, lingual and self ligating braces along with clear aligners and also extensively uses micro implants for complex orthodontic corrections.
  1. Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics – conserves the diseased anddamaged tooth from various causes rather than extracting it. These treatments include esthetic and conservative restoration, smile designing, minimally invasive dentistry, conservative and regenerative root canal treatment, tooth bleaching, apical surgery, tooth transplantation and replantation, retreatment of failed root canal treated tooth for rehabilitation of natural tooth anatomy and oral function using state of the art methods.
  1. Periodontics - focuses on the inflammatory disease that destroys the gums and other supporting structures around the teeth and provides the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gingival and periodontal disease including regeneration of the damaged tissue and placement of dental implants. We treat cases ranging from mild gingivitis to more severe periodontitis; offer a wide range of treatments including Phase I to Phase IV therapy.
  1. Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery-deals with removing hopeless diseased and impacted teeth, treating facial trauma, pathological conditions, managing orofacial pain, reconstructive and cosmetic surgery andcorrective jaw and soft tissue surgery.
  1. Oral medicine and radiology provides best diagnostic ability, in depth knowledge in identifying and removing the aetiology, logistic use of therapeutics in managing the symptoms and treating the oral illness, modification of diet and habits to suit the outcome and correction of underlying systemic deficiencies, hormonal and immune dysfunctions
