The Face of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Recognized as one of the Top Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons of Orange County by Orange Coast Magazine, Dr. Steven Miyamoto has decades of experience providing high-level care to oral surgery patients. Dr. Miyamoto combines sophisticated technology with the latest oral surgery innovations to ensure your family’s oral health is in the best of hands.

Dr. Miyamoto ensures patient satisfaction by providing personalized care for each individual undergoing oral surgery. He specializes in using growth factors and stem cells to expedite healing after surgery. He utilizes the patient’s own stem cells to speed up healing after wisdom teeth removal – this has virtually eliminated the risk of dry socket over the last six years.

His practice also uses stem cells and growth factors to speed up healing in bone grafting to prepare for implants, treatment of facial injuries, fosamax related osteonecrosis and, such state-of-the-art techniques as pinhole surgery.

A perfectionist, Dr. Miyamoto places all of his dental implants with computer guided planning techniques for more precise and successful surgeries. In over 26-years of placing dental implants, his long-term success rate is 99.9%.

Through the prestigious Seattle Study Club, he is involved with teaching a yearlong course which will educate and mentor general dentists on how to place and restore dental implants.

Dr. Miyamoto’s favorite trips involved going on medical missions to an orphanage in China, rural areas of Ensenada, and Guatemala with dental students from UCLA and Loma Linda, as well as serving at an annual free health care day in Orange County for those in need.
