Expertise in oral medicine also provide dental and oral health care for patients with medical diseases that distress dental treatment, together with patients receiving treatment for cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular and infective diseases. With the introduction of innovative radiographic techniques and the merger of computers in the day to day functioning, use of projection slides; computerized images etc. have solidified vast help in diagnosis and management of patients with precision. The field of Oral Radiology encompasses the imaging of teeth, jaws, and the head and neck region. The images are interpreted with an aim to diagnose diseases affecting the teeth, oral cavity, jaws and the maxillofacial structures. The Department is headed by Dr. Sunil R Panat.
