Regular check-ups and good oral hygiene are necessary for taking care of your smile. UHealth experts offer routine dental examinations, cleanings, fluoride treatments, and X-rays. In addition, our highly-trained staff and dental hygienists will take the time to teach you how to maintain good oral hygiene at home. 

We also offer advanced dental services including fillings, extractions, crowns, root canals, and deep cleanings to control periodontal disease.  If dental work makes you nervous, we offer IV sedation as well.

Why Choose UHealth?

Center of excellence. Our oral surgery experts are known for our expertise in dental implants and bone grafting.  We use growth factors (PRP and BMP) to accelerate healing and promote bone formation in graft areas.

General dentistry. In addition to providing more complicated procedures, we also offer routine dental services like extractions, cleanings, and examinations.

IV sedation. If dental work like extractions and root canals make you extremely nervous, IV sedation can really help you get the care you need. Our oral surgeons are qualified to administer general anesthesia because they have trained with a hospital-based anesthesiologist.

Cutting-edge procedures. As part of the University of Miami Health System, we are able to perform more advanced oral surgeries, such as tumor removal, reconstructive jaw and cosmetic surgery. Our experts have access to the latest treatments for snoring and sleep apnea.

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.
