Hypodontia service

QVH runs a specialist service for patients with Hypodontia (developmentally absent teeth).

All patients referred by general dental practitioners or orthodontic specialists identified with a diagnosis of Hypodontia are seen in a multidisciplinary clinic (Hypodontia multidisciplinary team/missing tooth clinic), to discuss options and the ideal timing of treatment prior to treatment plans being confirmed.

Referrals are accepted for advice and treatment.

Referrals are also accepted for multi-disciplinary team (MDT) treatment planning for patients who are having or who are being considered for orthodontic treatment in a specialist practice, or neighbouring NHS Trust.

The QVH Hypodontia Team works closely with the Hypodontia Team at Guy’s and St Thomas (GSTT), with an integrated treatment pathway for patients falling within NHS criteria for restorative management of Hypodontia with implants.
