Prosthodontics is one of the specialties in dentistry which endeavors to restore the function of dental and oral tissues using aesthetic principles. The department emphasizes to rehabilitate completely and partially edentulous patients with complete dentures, removable and fixed partial dentures, maxillofacial prosthesis and intra and extra oral implants.

The department is keen in imparting comprehensive skills to the undergraduate and postgraduate students. The clinical training begins in third year BDS and the students are trained and tested to carry our treatment ranging from simple cases to complex ones. The Post graduates carry out routine treatment as well as complex cases involving complete dentures, cast partial dentures, fixed prosthesis, implants and maxillofacial cases.

The department has separate undergraduate and post graduate clinics with modern equipment. The clinic is supplemented by dental laboratory for casting and fabricating a variety of prostheses.
