Restorative dentistry

We state repeatedly on various pages that this website does not deal with (routine) dentistry; this statement holds true. However, there are a number of maxillofacial conditions and treatment modalities, such as head & neck malignancies or serious trauma where specialist considerations apply either for patients with specific conditions or situations who need comparatively conventional dental input which would be impossible without specialist (usually hospital based) provision, or where the techniques are beyond that applicable to general dental practice. There is also the consideration of restorative dentistry in children with major maxillofacial conditions or undergoing maxillofacial surgery.

This section on restorative dentistry discusses dental precautionary and preserving interventions, oral hygiene and dental restoration in the context of underlying maxillofacial conditions and the treatment of these conditions.
