CBCT machine can be used exclusively for 3D imaging of maxilla and mandible, similar to that of computed tomography (CT). It helps in implant planning, assessment of roots, root canals, tooth fractures, 3D cephalometry, analysis of TM Joint, imaging of benign and malignant lesions of the jaw and much more. In our department we have undertaken several research projects on CBCT imaging and we also encourage further researches in the same field in the future.
Imaging and Morphometric analysis
The Olympus BX35 Research Microscope has phase contrast, polarizer, fluorescent attachment and CC TV with camera along with image analyser software which facilitates research activities of post graduates, PhD students and faculties of both dental and medical college.
Endodontic Microscope helps in visual enhancement and improved ergonomics. This eliminates long hours spent in a narrow operating space to treat obscure microanatomy. It also has the ability to appreciate the characteristics of magnification devices and the varied levels of magnification will encourage clinicians to use them and eventually increase their proficiency to perform endodontics procedures, hence improving the treatment outcomes.
Dental Laser Clinic
Laser dentistry can be a precise and effective way to perform many dental procedures. The Department of Periodontics has a well-functioning soft tissue Diode laser -ARC FOX Diode Laser for patient management as well as research purposes. It offers virtually pain free treatments and ensure bloodless experience to the patient, making it more acceptable mode of treatment by the patient.
Various procedures done in the department using LASER equipment include
Research projects done using LASER equipment in department:
Dental Laser Clinic
High End Olympus BX35 Research Microscope is present in the institute. This has phase contrast, polarizer, fluorescent attachment and CC TV with camera alongwith image analyzer software which facilitates research activities of post graduates, Phd students and faculties of both dental and medical college. There are adequate compound binoculour microscopes for the research activities of post graduate and faculties.The olympus streomicroscope is facilitating invitro research work involving the preparation of tooth specimen and evaluation of restorative works of post graduate students from clinical departments.
The immunohistochemistry laboratory is taking care of advanced studies apart from the routine diagnostic pathology. The microbiology setup with its facilities is catering to the research activities of the undergraduate and postgraduate students. The special stains techniques innovations have been done to highlight the epithelial pathology of oral tissues and have been awarded as the best paper at a national conference.
