DEPARTMENT PROFILE:
The department of Prosthodontics (Room No.5) of the Coorg Institute of Dental Sciences caters to the needs of patients needing replacement of missing natural teeth. This department treats on an average of over 100 patients daily. The treatments range from replacing tooth/teeth by a removable/fixed denture to complicated procedures like replacement of missing maxillofacial structures (eye, nose, ear) with artificial substitutes and placement of dental implants.

 Facilities available in the Removable partial denture section:
Replacement of missing teeth (single tooth to multiple teeth) with acrylic plate partial or cast partial dentures that can be removed on a regular basis.
Facilities available in the Fixed  partial denture section:
Replacement of missing teeth with artificial teeth that are securely luted/fixed to the remaining teeth and that cannot be removed on a regular basis.
Facilities available in the complete  denture section:
Replacement of full complement of teeth by artificial substitutes with the help of complete dentures.
Dental Implants section:
Replacement of missing tooth/teeth with a fixed artificial tooth/teeth that are retained by means of an implant/fixture that is implanted into the underlying bone without jeopardizing the integrity of the adjacent natural teeth.
Maxillofacial prosthesis section:
Replacement of missing craniofacial tissues (eye, ear, nose etc) with artificial biocompatible substitutes.
                                                     
Ongoing Research Projects:

  • The influence of platform switching on stress distribution in the peri-
    implant area under varying bone densities: A three dimensional
    finite element analysis.
    - Dr. Helen Mary Abraham

  • 'A comparative study on scannability, dimensional stability and
    shore hardness of CAD bite material with two other IPS contrast
    sprayed elastomeric bite registration materials.
    - Dr. Jumol Joseph

  • A study to evaluate the efficacy and tensile strength of tissue condi
    tioners after incorporation of three antifungal agents.
