Oral Surgery

happy dental patient

Oral surgery is an umbrella term for surgical treatments such as dental implants, extractions and bone grafting. Dental implants, an excellent solution for missing teeth, are surgically placed tooth roots that hold dental crowns in place. Extractions are necessary if a tooth can’t be saved due to breakage, decay or infection. A wisdom tooth extraction may be recommended if there isn’t enough room in your mouth and they become impacted, partially erupted or infected. Bone grafting is frequently done following an extraction to help preserve the bone level for implant placement or fabrication of a bridge. While Dr. Berg can perform many oral surgery procedures, an oral surgeon may be required for others.
