Paediatric dentistry

The paediatric dentistry department in the Children’s Hospital provides dental care for children aged under 13 years.

We treat a range of issues including:

  • complicated mouth injuries
  • missing, extra and unexplained worn teeth
  • teeth that fall out too early or too late
  • cleft lip and/or palate
  • irregular face and head bone growth (craniofacial anomalies)
  • buried teeth
  • gum problems
  • problems with the skin inside your mouth and the bones supporting your teeth

A child may be referred to the paediatric dentistry department by:

  • a dental practice
  • a community dental care service
  • a primary care specialist
