Department of Operative Dentistry

Operative Dentistry is the art and science of the diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of defects of teeth which require restoration. Such restorations should restore the proper tooth form, function and esthetics while maintaining the physiological integrity of the teeth in harmonious relationship with the adjacent hard and soft tissues of the oral cavity.

During the last 50 years treatment of carious teeth has evolved constantly. The specialty of operative dentistry is concerned with the treatment of carious, discolored and broken down teeth.

Newer techniques and materials are being introduced on a regular basis. Operative dentistry is still recognized as the foundation of dentistry and the base from which most other aspects of dentistry are evolved. The contributions of many practitioners, educators and researchers throughout the world have resulted in operative dentistry being recognized today as a scientifically based discipline that plays an important role in enhancing dental health.

The dynamic specialty of operative dentistry is made up of several sub specialties. It includes:

  • Conservative dentistry
  • Endodontics
  • Paedodontics
  • Cosmetic dentistry
