Velammal Hospital - Dentistry
Dentistry is one profession that has an enigmatic past, a modern present and unbelievable future. Even to the well-oiled professional, the dynamics of dentistry can be perplexing. As the marvels of the mouth continue to awe us, the technology that aids in mastering the mysteries of the mouth continues to develop at an astonishing pace. To a dedicated dentist, the fascination for the jaw will never cease.
Every facet of dentistry has undergone a transition, a revolution of sorts. Numerous ideas have been proposed, explored, accepted and criticized; from chairs, armamentarium, pain management, material aspects, surgical techniques and diagnostic aids etc. the ground is all set for the young minds to purview the past, practice the present and embrace everything that the future has to offer.
The need for finesse and refinement has cast its spell on every aspect of dentistry. The advent from early dental drills to ultrasonic/ fibroptic high speed devices, knifes to LASERS, hanging motors to physio-dispensers, ether chamber to TENS (Trans-Electronic Nerve Stimulation) and EDA (Electronic Dental Anaesthesia), wood picks to piezo-scalers & piezotomes, reverse headgears to lingual orthodontics, dentures to implants, ablative surgeries coupled with tissue loss to distraction osteogenesis, there is not one facet of dentistry that has not witnessed an advancement in technique and technology.
