Research – Oral Pathology & Microbiology

Oral cancer has a very high incidence in this part of the country because of tobacco use. The overall prognosis of this disease is poor, but is highly curable if diagnosed and treated early. Our emphasis is on “research for early diagnosis” which will help clinicians in their treatment planning and providing better patient care.

Forensic Odontology:

Forensic odontology is a major branch of forensic science, as dental tissues are the strongest tissues in the human body and therefore their characteristics remain unchanged even after long periods of stay in extreme environments:the teeth can often survive long periods of immersion under water, burial under soil, fire, exposure to biological agents in the natural environment. Thus, the importance of dental identification is increasing year by year. Oral pathologists have a major responsibility in the development of this science. The updated current dental curriculum in India includes forensic odontology in the undergraduate and postgraduate syllabus and constitutes a major portion of the subject of oral pathology.
