DEPARTMENT PROFILE:
The department of Periodontics of the Coorg Institute of Dental Sciences caters to the needs of patients needing gum care. This department treats on an average of over 100 patients daily. The treatments range from simple scaling of teeth (cleaning) to complicated procedures like root planing, curettage, flap surgery, laser surgeries and dental implants.

Facilities available in the prophylactic division:
Scaling and root planing: Cleaning of teeth either manually by students or using ultrasonic scalers is performed for patients requiring cleaning.

Facilities available in the surgical division:
For advanced gum infections, surgical procedures including the use of laser assisted flap surgeries are performed. Additionally, postgraduate students and faculty routinely perform regenerative periodontics including the use of bone grafts and membranes.

Facilities available in the Implants and Laser division:
Postgraduate students undergo comprehensive training in the placement of dental implants. The students are trained in the diagnosis and treatment planning of dental implants. Additionally, they also are trained in the placement of dental implants on patients. Diode laser unit along with comprehensive training to postgraduates for various treatment modalities.
