Academics UG Curriculum

We are here with strong dedication to impart the next generation with eternal wealth of knowledge that empowers and helps to provide the most powerful dental care. We the faculty in the department of orthodontics have developed a rich history of healthcare innovation. We strive hard to provide the best suitable and satisfactory smile for an individual, for which we are indulged in treating patients with just not one particular system, rather than using appliances from oldest to the most recent therapies, we also use a combination of multiple systems utilizing the advantages of each.

Under Graduate Programme

Lingual orthodontics- when a patient doesn’t wish for a braces smile.

  • Self-ligating systems- with slightly less pain and less time and less treatment  time at every visit being some of their advantages.
  • Some of the self-ligating systems that we use regularly include-Damon system, selfy, smart clip etc.
  • We also practice invisalign- a removable clear aligner, which stands first in its non-metallic esthetic preference.
  • In growing children to bring about skeletal correction we use myofunctional appliances.
  • In the end stages of growth and highly non-co-operative kids we do use fixed functional appliances.
  • A  recent appliance Advance Sync 2
  • Removable appliances- to correct minor malocclusions.

We take time and make a point to ask specific needs in the smile for each patient as perception of smile may vary from person to person which helps us to disperse patients with a happy smile from within and  a good smile that they deserve. We prioritize not only  providing a bright smile, we also take care of patients’ health by maintaining the best sterilization possible.
