About the Department

Headed By:

DR. SAMARENDRA RAY

MDS


This department deals with diagnosing , monitoring and treating facial growth related issues and malalignment of teeth. Improper growth patterns in children and presence of deleterious habits like thumb sucking and mouth breathing can lead to patients having malaligned teeth placed in a haphazard manner in the jaws. These malaligned teeth and jaws are cosmetically poor and lower the patients self confidence as time progresses. These malaligned teeth are ineffective in chewing and fall prey to gum disease faster.

This department caters to the above mentioned misalignment majorly by providing fixed braces ( orthodontic brackets ) to these patients. Some minor deformities are also treated by removable appliances with springs in them to correct rotations and overlapping of tooth.

This department works in close association with pediatric dentisty department , as the primary age group of its patients are 11 to 13 yrs of age. This department also works in close association with oral surgery department when some adult patients reporting with misaligned teeth need orthognathic jaw surgery for correction.
