The Restorative Dentistry Department provides specialist treatment and advice in all aspects of Restorative Dentistry for the rehabilitation of oral and dental function, together with dental and facial appearance.
Specialist care is prioritised to patient groups with oral cancer, patients who are born with missing teeth (hypodontia), patients with oral developmental deformities (e.g. cleft lip & palate) and patients affected by significant oral and facial trauma. For these cases, we often work closely with our colleagues in various departments at the Leeds Dental institute including Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Orthodontics and Paediatric Dentistry.
We also provide specialist advice and treatment planning to general dental practitioners in the following areas: Endodontics (root canal problems), Periodontics (gum problems), Fixed and Removable Prosthodontics (replacement of missing or worn and broken down teeth) and Implant Dentistry.
We work in partnership with the University of Leeds and Health Education England (Yorkshire and the Humber) to provide teaching to a range of students and dental professionals (dentists, hygiene therapists, nurses and technicians) and conduct clinical dental research.
