Dentistry - Restorative

Restorative Dentistry is a consultant led service that provides adult patients with assessment, diagnosis and advice for the full range of advanced restorative problems.

Restorative Dentistry includes the subspecialties of endodontics (root canal
treatment), prosthodontics (dentures and bridges) and periodontics (treatment of gum conditions).

Patients must have a dentist willing to provide routine treatment and maintenance care during and after specialist treatment.

Patients will only be offered treatment at this hospital based department if they:

  • require specialist expertise or equipment that cannot reasonably be provided within primary dental care
  • have a significant medical history that affects clinical management
  • have a “modifying factor” that increases the complexity of treatment for the patient.

Examples of specialist treatment include:

  • Locating access to the root canal system
  • Removal of fractured instruments from a root canal
  • Initial management of tooth surface loss and temporomandibular joint dysfunction
  • Management of complex prosthetic cases
  • Dental reconstruction cases
  • Initial management of advanced (moderate to severe) periodontal disease
  • Surgical removal of drug associated gum overgrowth
  • Multidisciplinary care, with orthodontics, of appropriate cases including hypodontia, gross malalignment and syndromatous conditions of the jaws.
