Prosthodontics

Prosthodontics is a branch of dentistry which deals with replacement of teeth and oral and maxillofacial tissues by artificial materials. We replace teeth or tissues which are lost by birth deformity, trauma, accident or any disease and restore form, function, aesthetics, comfort, quality of life and self esteem.

We work with the motto of Muller De Van’s Dictum “It is more important to preserve what is remaining, than meticulous replacement of what is lost”

We use materials like metal, acrylic, silicones, ceramics and composites to replace missing structures. State of art Dental Laboratory (DSIR approved), available in campus to render patient related services. We are also linked up with State of art Dental Laboratories to provide Computer Aided Designing and Computer Assisted Milling (CAD CAM) and Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) services.

The faculty team, apart from teaching, has the expertise in treating patients with the following problems

Missing teeth

Removable Partial / Removable Complete Denture – some or all teeth missing

  • Hard (acrylic), Soft (Flexible) dentures, Cast metal partial Dentures, attachment retained clasp less esthetic dentures.
  • Acrylic, metal reinforced acrylic dentures with different types of teeth according the patient needs.
  • Keeping few teeth and placing dentures over them (overdentures).
  • Replacement of teeth soon after extraction (immediate dentures).

Fixed Partial Denture / Complete Denture – some or all teeth missing

  • Metal, acrylic, ceramic (Ranges of strength), composites and combinations like metal acrylic, metal ceramic, metal composites.
  • Crowns for restoring root canal treated teeth and restoring broken down teeth
  • Bridges for replacement of missing teeth.
  • Implants to replace the lost single tooth / multiple teeth / all the teeth
  • CADCAM, DMLS technology

Unesthetic smile because of broken teeth, worn out teeth, spacing between teeth

  • Laminate veneers
  • Smile Designing
  • Full mouth rehabilitation

Missing Oral and Craniofacial defects – Acrylic, Metal, Silicones

  • Defects of jaw bones (maxilla and mandible)
  • Defects of the eye (orbital and ocular prosthesis)
  • Defects of the nose (nasal)
  • Defects of the ear (auricular)
  • Defects of skull bone (cranial)
