In House Operation Theatre
The presence of an in-house operation theatre in the department of pediatric dentistry, facilitates the post graduate students to render full mouth rehabilitation for children lacking co-operative ability under general anesthesia without any delay. We have a state of the art operational unit for conscious sedation. So this eliminates anxiety both for dentists and children.
Endodontics in primary teeth is a challenging procedure both for the child and the dentist. We are the pioneer in establishing simple, quick and convenient pulp therapy with the use of exclusive rotary files for primary teeth. This reduces the anxiety and the duration of the treatment.
