Handling more than 500 cases of trauma each year, the department had to face the challenge of adequately rehabilitating these patients to proper dental function and esthetics.

Autogenous, alloplastic and homogenous bone grafts are being done and later implants are placed to totally rehabilitate patients with maxillofacial trauma.
