Conservative Dentistry is the subject that deals with the art and science of the diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of defects of teeth which do not require full coverage restorations for correction; such treatment should result in the restoration of proper tooth form, function and aesthetics while maintaining the physiological integrity of the teeth in harmonious relationship with adjacent hard and soft tissues.
ENDODONTICS is the subject that deals with art and science of diagnosis treatment and prognosis of pulpally compromised teeth.
A team of Endodontists along with experienced Post Graduates will be visiting the KLE International School to conduct an awareness camp since the environment is more conducive to learn & dental health education & motivation shall be more effective, after all a child needs to be conditioned from a tender age that DON’T RUSH, WHILE YOU BRUSH!
At the fag end of the week, the department will be hosting Dr.Abhijeet Shetty from Mumbai who will be conducting a course on advanced endodontics which is essential for the Post Graduates as a part of continuing education.
With this the department aims to send across a message that Oral Health is not expensive, neglect is & hence we invite all the citizens in and around Belagavi to avail this opportunity and benefit the most from it.
