TProsthodontics is the first among the nine dental specialties recognized by the Dental Council of India (DCI) the apex body governing Dental Education, training and curricula in India. Prosthodontics deals with the diagnosis, treatment planning, rehabilitation and maintenance of the oral function, comfort, appearance and heath of patients with clinical conditions associated with missing or deficient teeth and/or oral and maxillofacial tissues using biocompatible substitutes.
The Department of Prosthodontics and Implantology at P.M.S College of Dental Science and Research provides for extensive training to both our Post Graduate and Under graduate students and equip them with a special understanding of the dynamics of a smile, the preservation of a healthy mouth and the creation of suitable and enduring restorations that are custom made, in house, at our state of the art, ceramic and restorative lab. Serving as the architect of a comprehensive dental treatment plan encompassing the stomatognathic system as a whole and as a synergistic unit, we in the Department of Prosthodontics collaborate with our colleagues and specialists in the other branches of Dentistry and allied health professionals such as speech therapists, psychologists and anaplastologists to develop solutions to dental and maxillofacial health concerns. We in the Department of Prosthodontics work with congenital defects as well as problems arising from trauma and neglect.
Crowns, bridges, complete and removable partial dentures, dental implants and implant supported restorations in the oral cavity and in maxillofacial structures, treating TMD and jaw joint problems, traumatic injuries to the maxillofacial structures and/or teeth, snoring or sleep disorders and oral cancer reconstruction and continuing follow up are just some of the treatment care provided by the Department of Prosthodontics at P.M.S College of Dental Science and Research in restoring optimum function and aesthetics.
