What We Do

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 for priority groups:

  • Patient groups with oral cancer,
  • Patients who are born with missing teeth (hypodontia),
  • Patients with oral developmental deformities (e.g. cleft lip & palate)
  • Patients affected by significant oral and facial trauma. 

Specialist advice & treatment or 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)
  • 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.
