Department Of Prosthodontics, Crown & Bridge and Implantology

Prosthodontics is that branch of Dentistry pertaining to the restoration & maintenance of oral function, comfort, appearance & health of the patient by the restoration of natural Teeth and or replacement of missing teeth & craniofacial tissue with artificial substitutes.  This subject is taught from 1st to 4th BDS.

Department of Prosthodontics has separate UG and PG Clinic’s measuring 2225 sft . UG Clinic is with 22 dental chairs and PG Clinic is with 19 dental chairs.


Undergraduate Program:

In the first yearof Undergraduatecurriculum, Dental Materials, acore subject in dentistry is taught to get an insight of material studies used in various branch of clinical dental practice. In the 1st and 2nd BDS, the laboratory skill to acquire expertise in handling material science and theclinical acumen isachieved by training students on Phantom heads in the Pre- clinical Prosthodontic laboratory.

In the 3rd& 4th year of curriculum, students are trained to achieve clinical expertise under faculty supervision in treating partially / completely edentulous conditions with removable or fixed treatment strategies. Also the students are introduced to recent treatment modalities such as Implantology , Full mouth rehabilitation, smile designing and Maxillofacial Prosthodontics. The department is equipped with separate Undergraduate Clinic, State of the art well equipped Laboratory and air conditioned ceramic lab. These equipments are necessary to carry out the best of restorative work.


Postgraduate Program:

An advanced education and training program in Prosthodontics is catered to highly qualified graduate dentists who are interested in specialised practice or teaching and research. Admissions are based on NEET qualifying exams.

The postgraduate program includes extensive clinical and laboratory phases of Prosthodontics training in the areas of fixed and removable partial dentures, complete dentures, maxillofacial prosthetics and implant Prosthodontics.The principle of scientific research design and evaluation are emphasized in the form of compulsory University dissertation and library dissertation which is to be submitted at the end of the curriculum.

The department is equipped with separate postgraduate clinic and state of the art laboratory with air conditioned ceramic lab. Laboratory equipment includes induction casting machine ,ceramic furnaces , metal free ceramic furnace, surveyor with milling machine for precision work, fully and semi adjustable articulators. Department is equipped with digital scanner, RVG, for fabricating prosthesis in CAD CAM technologies.

The curriculum also involves training of the students in the placement of implants and application of recent advancements seen in the field of dentistry such as computer guided surgeries and digital smile designing.

Vision

To train students by means of a multifaceted program, which will produce Specialists of high caliber by integrating sound clinical principles with ethical Standards.

Mission

  • To train Undergraduate and Postgraduate students in providing comprehensive oral and maxillofacial rehabilitation with compassion and care.
  • To provide timely and efficient care.
  • Prepare students to develop ability in critical thinking and problem solving.
  • To provide patient centered services.

Head of the Department of Prosthodontics – Message

Dr. Ponnanna A.A (Principal,Prof. & HOD) MDS (Prosthodontics)

Greeting to all

The masters in Prosthodontics program is designed for qualified dentist pursue advanced didactic education and clinical experience in the field of restorative, implant and digital technology for comprehensive dental treatment. The three years programme includes curriculum where the student is trained to be academician, researcher and clinician.

The graduates of this programme will be well positioned to become leader in the continued development and integration of the restoration and replacement techniques. In addition, the students at the end of this programme will be able to conduct themselves in an ethical and professional manner consistent with the expectation of the profession.
