About Department

The Department of Orthodontics deals with the correction of teeth and jaws that are not positioned properly. Difficulty in maintaining the hygiene of crooked and imbalanced teeth provides a risk of tooth decay and periodontal disease.

This can cause extra stress on the chewing muscles and can further lead to headaches, TMJ syndrome and neck, shoulder and back pain. Crooked and imbalanced teeth can also reduce the level of physical attractiveness.

At the department, periodic clinical audits are carried out to assess cases treated with Lingual orthodontics and temporary anchorage devices (TADs) to guide the students during treatment delivery. Regular workshops and CDEs are conducted to keep the students abreast with the latest trends in clinical and research areas of orthodontics.
