General dentistry includes preventive and corrective care of the teeth and gums. Preventive care involves fluoridation, teeth cleaning, X-rays of the teeth, and an inspection of the mouth, gums and teeth.
Corrective care is wide-ranging and includes the filing of cavities, placing of sealants, repairing of fractures of the teeth, straightening teeth, fitting dentures, and surgical treatment of gum disease.
The HSA dental services are delivered on site at the Cayman Islands Hospital, the Faith Hospital and the Merren Health Centre, and at schools and district clinics in Grand and Little Cayman.
