Research

Research is an integral component of dental education. Considering this, much emphasis is given for research right from the undergraduate level. The School has initiated a number of substantive developments to support the research endeavor and to demonstrate our commitment to support research in the faculty. The programs offered are focused on a wide range of areas including Conservative Dentistry & Endodontics, Oral & Maxillofacial Pathology & Microbiology, Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Oral Medicine and Radiology, Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics, Paediatric Dentistry, Periodontics, Prosthodontics, Public Health Dentistry. Quality, innovative and value based research is much encouraged and the school has started taking heights in research achievements. It is what distinguishes us from similar schools and what equip our students for leading – edge positions on the rapidly changing healthcare frontier.

Projects

a) Improving the Dental Implant Tissue Bonding by Nano Texture – A Cost Effective Approach – Dr. Anil Mathew

To study the development of dental implants that show faster and enhanced osseointegration, less technique sensitive and which can be used in compromised conditions like diabetes mellitus, osteoporosis, etc.

b) Clinical Application of Tissue Engineering for Bone Augmentation and Endosseous Dental Implants – Dr. Manju V.

This research is mainly focused on clinical use of tissue engineered bone substitute for augmentation of resorbed alveolar ridges and surgically reconstructed maxillectomy and mandibulectomy defects.
