Our team delivers oral surgery in Miami Beach in a welcoming environment where we spend time with each patient, explaining the reason that their dentist referred them to our office.

Selecting an oral and maxillofacial surgeon is a very personal decision and we will do everything possible to ensure that you have confidence in us and that you are willing to trust your smile to our team.
What Do Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons Do?
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons have the training and hospital-based experience needed to handle complex problems associated with the teeth and jaws, including jaw reconstruction and facial trauma treatment. After graduating from dental school, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon completes another four or more years of training to study advanced anesthesia, pathology, emergency medical care and other disciplines, usually along with medical students in a hospital-based residency program.
The American Dental Association accepts oral surgery as a specialty.
What Types of Oral Surgery Services Are Available?
We can diagnose and treat, both surgically and nonsurgically, oral and maxillofacial diseases and defects, restoring functionality and aesthetic aspects. Our oral surgeon in Miami Beach performs a full range of oral and maxillofacial procedures for your convenience, including:
Extracting Impacted Teeth, Including Wisdom Teeth
As part of our service to our patients, we can remove painful, impacted teeth that your dentist felt were complex extractions. Additionally, we perform wisdom teeth extractions in our office, as opposed to sending you to a hospital. Our staff will explain the post-operative instructions, tell you what to expect and go over any medications that you may need to relieve any discomfort after your surgery. If you would prefer to have one or more extractions done in a comfortable, safe setting, schedule an appointment with our office.
Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth and they look and function just like natural teeth. We often see patients at our oral surgery office who smile more often after the procedure and feel more self-confident. Individuals who previously wore dentures can now laugh, eat their favorite foods and even sneeze without the embarrassment of their dentures slipping once they have permanent dental implants.
Our oral surgeon in Miami Beach can reconstruct your jawbone in areas where deterioration occurred, making it suitable for implant placement. Missing teeth are generally responsible for bone deterioration since chewing provides the constant stimulation the jawbone needs to remain healthy. Chronic infections, accidents and osteoporosis may also cause bone loss.
Denture Related Procedures
While being fitted for dentures, your dentist may refer you for oral surgery in Miami Beach to have any complex extractions performed. Additionally, we can remove mouth bumps, called tori, on the roof of your mouth that would prevent your dentures from fitting comfortably.
The Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is located in the spot where the jaw and skull meet. Disorders of the joint can cause chronic pain, which is why visiting a specialist is important for receiving an accurate diagnosis and to discuss treatment options. Common causes of TMJ disorders include muscular diseases, bite problems, stress, a jaw injury or grinding one’s teeth. Surgery is not always necessary as sometimes a mouth guard will correct the condition. Call us for an appointment if you would like to hear about the options available to get your jaws opening and closing comfortably.
Since the initial stages of oral cancer do not cause any pain, routine oral self-examinations are important. If you or your dentist notice any unusually colored tissue or a sore that does not seem to heal, our oral and maxillofacial surgeon in Miami Beach will do a biopsy and in most instances, you can have the growth or lesions removed in the comfort of our office.
We also offer reconstructive surgery, sleep apnea treatment and corrective jaw surgery. Call our office to inquire about a specific service that you do not see listed and then schedule your initial consultation with us to learn more about your treatment options.
