How Oral Surgery in Boynton Beach Saves Your Smile
Oral surgery occurs when there’s been a severe injury to the mouth, a patient suffers from extreme gum disease, or if a tooth extraction is needed to save other healthy teeth. There are several different forms of oral surgery, but they share the primary goal of helping you repair, maintain, and improve your healthy smile.

This type of surgery corrects a wide variety of issues, including:
- Gum/bone grafting
- Dental implants
- Wisdom teeth removal
- Maxillofacial surgery
- Root canal therapy
- Jaw repair after injury
We perform oral surgery when the necessary treatment goes beyond the expertise of a simple procedure. If your wisdom teeth are impacted and you’re experiencing pain, extraction is the right choice. This saves your other healthy teeth from shifting out of their natural position or prevents the development of gum disease and dental decay. Dental professionals remove wisdom teeth to avoid serious damage to your teeth and gums.
Oral Cancer Related Surgery
Another form of oral surgery is oral cancer biopsies. If you have any lesions in your mouth that look suspicious to us, we’ll advise a biopsy. Here, we check for other more serious medical problems that you may not be aware of.
We perform an oral biopsy to check for oral cancer. A biopsy entails the removal of a small area of tissue from the mouth. We send it to a laboratory for further testing and analysis. Our practice receives that information and we relay all information to you in a comprehensive manner.
Jaw Related Surgery
We recommend jaw surgery if your jaw alignment poses a long term risk of damage to your teeth, gums, and facial structure. Boynton Beach oral surgery includes jaw realignment surgery as well as maxillary osteotomies, mandibular osteotomies, and bone grafting surgery. Our team specializes in various forms of oral surgery and we provide the most advanced treatments and procedures in the area.
Additional types of oral surgery include reconstructive surgery to replace missing teeth or repair facial injuries. Reconstructive surgery is important because the jawbone begins to recede if there’s nothing for it to support. Dental implants support the facial structure and maintain a healthy smile.
