Dr. Erik Palmberg provides minor oral surgery procedures to improve your oral health. These procedures are recommended when more conservative treatment options are not enough to restore your damaged teeth. If you require a more complex procedure, our dentist will work with a trusted specialist to ensure you receive the care you need.
The goal of oral surgery is to improve the function, health and appearance of your smile and surrounding oral structures. While we primarily offer routine tooth extractions, other common examples of oral surgery include:
- Wisdom teeth removal — to extract third molars that are impacted or have erupted at an incorrect angle.
- Jaw surgery — to treat a TMJ disorder, improve the fit of dentures or correct uneven jaw growth.
- Bone grafting — to increase bone density or improve the chances for a successful dental implant.
- Dental implant placement — to surgically insert the implant post and complete the first stage of your implant treatment.
Dr. Palmberg will examine your entire mouth to determine if oral surgery is needed and discuss the findings with you so that you can make an informed decision about your treatment.
