Treatments

  • Dental Extractions

    Diseased conditions of the teeth vary greatly. The range extends from the well-known “cavity”, to advanced periodontal disease. Diseases of the teeth also include the common impacted teeth or “wisdom teeth.” These conditions, besides causing intense pain in the jaws, can also have associated infections and may produce cysts or tumors.

    These teeth commonly need to be extracted (or pulled out); a procedure that is performed by an oral surgeon.  UHealth has several expert oral surgeons who have been specially trained to extract teeth with minimal discomfort to the patient.

  • IV Sedation 

    You may be so anxious about dental work that you decide not to go at all.  Rather than not taking care of your teeth and possibly having painful tooth issues, IV sedation may be an option. Conscious sedation is a form of “twilight sleep” that you can receive safely in an office setting. Your sedation will be given through an intravenous line (IV) and titrated until you achieve a state of complete relaxation and semi-sleep. 

    These medications help prevent anxiety and nervousness in the dental setting. All patients undergoing sedation are monitored with the same equipment, just like general anesthesia in a hospital. Our oral surgeons are qualified to administer general anesthesia because they have trained for six months with a hospital-based anesthesiologist. 

  • Complex Dental Rehabilitation 

    If your teeth have been damaged by injury, tooth grinding, extensive decay, or gum disease, we can rebuild broken down or worn teeth with modern day techniques. Missing teeth can be replaced with either bridgework, removable partial dentures, or dental implants as needed. Regardless of the condition of your teeth, we can restore your smile.
