The Restorative Dentistry Department consists of several specialist areas, and provides treatment for adult patients requiring restoration, such as general fillings, root fillings, bridges, crowns and partial denture provisions, along with patients who require implant therapy.
The Restorative Department offers conscious sedation for patients who are anxious about having routine restorative treatment, and for patients with special needs or who are medically compromised, particularly those with learning difficulties, behavioural problems and complex medical conditions.
The service primarily provides both full and partial denture design and manufacture for its patients. The dentures are manufactured at UDH in the dedicated dental laboratories. In addition, the implant provision in UDH is co-ordinated through this department.
Advice and managment is provided for patients with problems relating to gums. Hygienists work very closely to help with preventative measures regarding gum disease and tooth decay. The vast majority of patients are treated on a non-surgical basis such, as anti-microbial therapy.
The Dental Hospital has an undergraduate teaching clinic where patients requiring primarily routine restorative work are treated by supervised trainees.
Restorative Dentistry is situated on the Second and Third Floors.
