Dental

Our children’s dental department is based at St Thomas’ Hospital, having moved from Guy's Hospital in October 2014.

We are a regional centre for children and young people who need specialist dental and oral healthcare.

We provide an A&E service for dental emergencies as a well as a full range of outpatient and treatment clinics (local anaesthetic, inhalation and intravenous sedation).

We also carry out day surgery under general anaesthetic and provide inpatient treatments.

Conditions treated

We treat children with:

  • complex medical problems
  • soft tissue conditions (such as problems with the gums, cheeks or tongue)
  • special needs
  • dental anomalies (such as altered tooth structure, shape, size, form and number of teeth)
  • complex dental injuries
  • periodontal (gum) problems
  • extensive tooth erosion
  • extensive tooth decay (in very young children, or uncooperative older children)
  • phobias (where other treatment attempts have failed).

We also treat children who need:

  • surgical removal of teeth that have failed to come through ('erupt')
  • investigation of disorders of tooth eruption and loss.

Our clinics

We work closely with other dental specialities and healthcare professionals in our multidisiplinary clinics. See the clinics page for more information.
