Oral Surgery in Harford County, MD
Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a specialty of dentistry concerned with the diagnosis and surgical treatment of congenital or acquired diseases, dysfunction, defects or injuries of the mouth, jaws, face, neck and associated regions.
Some of these issues are:
- When Teeth Are Lost
When a tooth must be extracted due to trauma, bone loss or other reasons, implants can be placed into the bone if you are determined to be a good candidate.
The wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the most frequently impacted teeth because of a lack of space in the jaw. In most cases, wisdom teeth that do not erupt into proper alignment should be extracted.
- Facial Trauma
Oral surgery can help in cases of facial trauma that result from accidents or facial genetic malformation of the jaw and face.
