The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

What We Do

The Restorative Dentistry Department provides specialist treatment and advice in all aspects of Restorative Dentistry for the rehabilitation of dental function and appearance.

Specialist care is prioritised to patient groups with oral cancer, patients born with very few teeth (hypodontia), patients with oral developmental defects (e.g. cleft lip & palate) and patients affected by significant trauma.  In 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) and Fixed and Removable Prosthodontics (replacement of missing or worn and broken down teeth).

We work in partnership with the University of Leeds and Health Education 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.
