About the Treatment

Maxillofacial trauma is trauma to the head and face region caused most frequently by accident, injury or violence. Care for patients with type of injury often originates in the Emergency Department and may involve treatment, restoration and follow-up care by a team of dental specialists, including oral surgeons, prosthodontists, orthodontists and general dentists.

In the Massachusetts General Hospital Division of Dentistry, our practice offers its patients access to the full scope of dental specialists.
