Fixed orthodontic treatment starts at district hospital Anantnag

District hospital Anantnag has started “fixed orthodontic treatment”— an advanced oral healthcare procedure.

The procedure deals primarily with mal-positioned teeth and jaws, their diagnosis, prevention and correction. 

“The services will be a boon for the young patients of south Kashmir who cannot afford the treatment in private hospitals as the treatment is too costly,” a statement here said. 

Earlier the facility was only available at government dental college Srinagar. 

The service at the district hospital Anantnag is being rendered by Dental Unit of the hospital headed Dr Mudasir Khan, consultant, orthodontist. 

The health facility has become the third district hospital in the state to start this procedure after JLNM and district hospital Pulwama.

Meanwhile, radio visio graphy (RVG) has been installed at dental section of district hospital Pulwama which will help the doctors to upgrade conservative treatment services for the patients.

Dr Saleem ur Rehman, director general, health services, Kashmir in the statement said the department “is focused to upgrade oral health services across Kashmir division and in that context upgradation of all dental sections is going on as per the oral health checklist already issued.”
