The Department of Orthodontics at Tagore Dental College Hospital is equipped with state of the art infrastructure and equipments for imparting knowledge to the Post- Graduates on the use of latest equipments and giving them an exposure to the latest trends in Orthodontics.
As far as Orthodontics is concerned, we deal with individuals as early as 6-7 yrs to identify & recognize any developing skeletal abnormalities and preventively treat them so that it will turn out to become a problem.
And if the individual fails to visit the clinician at an early stage of the skeletal abnormality, then we have treatment options to modify & correct those skeletal and dental abnormalities.
Further we have various treatment options for adults ranging from removable appliances to fixed appliances. In adult individuals where skeletal abnormalities are present, Orthodontics along with Orthognathic Surgeries can bring great improvement in their lifestyle.
With the advent of Micro Implants the sphere of impact, to treat challenging malocclusions, has widened.
