Hi, I'm Brent, and I'm from Panama City, Florida. I came to see Dr. Claussen for an extraction. I was referred from my dentist. I called and had a bad toothache, and they were very quick to get me in. The extraction was handled very quickly, very professional....

Claussen, DMD is an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and Doctor of Medical Dentistry, making him highly qualified to provide treatment for diseases, injuries, and defects of oral and facial structures.
Whether you need wisdom teeth removal, dental implant placement, bone grafting, a full arch of teeth restored, facial trauma surgery, or the treatment of oral pathology, our surgical and office staff are highly skilled to handle your unique oral surgery needs. All patients want to find a surgical team that they feel comfortable with and trust to provide exceptional care. We have the pleasure of serving Panama City, the Bay, and surrounding counties with exceptional oral surgical care you can trust.
Whether a tooth is lost as a result of decay, periodontal disease, or facial injury, it can be difficult to perform day-to-day functions. The best option for restoring a natural-looking smile and function to the mouth is the placement of dental implants. A dental implant contains three parts: the implant, the abutment (small metal post), and the custom-designed crown.
During this procedure, Dr. Claussen will place the implant directly into the jaw bone and allow the implant to fuse directly with the bone, giving it the stability of your original natural tooth. Dental implants also maintain the health of adjacent teeth and decrease the bone loss associated with missing teeth. At Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center of Panama City, our patients’ oral health and function are our top priorities. If you want to find out if you are a candidate for dental implants, we welcome you to schedule a consultation.
Your wisdom teeth, or third molars, are an additional set of molars in the back of your mouth that are the last to erupt. These additional teeth can crowd existing teeth and can become impacted, causing pain and discomfort. We recommend that wisdom teeth removal occur as early as possible, usually during the mid- to late teens, to avoid numerous oral health problems caused by wisdom teeth. As an experienced oral surgeon, Dr. Claussen will explain what to expect during the wisdom tooth removal procedure and develop the best plan of action for extraction. The Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center of Panama City team offers a range of anesthetic and sedative options including local anesthesia, nitrous oxide, and IV sedation so you can rest comfortably during your procedure.
If you have wisdom teeth that are causing problems or are interested in taking preventative measures to ensure your oral health remains intact, please call us at Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center of Panama City to schedule your consultation.
The All-on-4® Treatment Concept is a revolutionary solution for patients who have lost, or are in the process of losing, an entire upper or lower arch of teeth. In a single surgical procedure, you can receive your dental implants and a temporary denture allowing you to begin receiving the benefits of your new teeth right away. Once your dental implants have fully healed, the temporary denture will be replaced by a permanent denture molded to your mouth’s exact specifications. To determine if you are a candidate for full-arch restoration, Dr. Claussen will meet with you for an initial consultation, review your medical history, and perform an oral examination of any remaining teeth and the gums. The All-on-4® Treatment Concept can significantly improve your overall quality of life and confidence.
These teeth will allow you to consume a whole food diet and can be treated like your natural teeth. Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center of Panama City is available to answer any questions you may have about any procedures we offer. Please call us at (850) 215-0798.
