As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Karim Hussain diagnoses and treats problems affecting the mouth, teeth, gums, jaws, salivary glands, face, neck and other related facial structures.
Oral surgery may be required to diagnose or treat injuries and diseases in the mouth. Biopsies can determine the presence of oral cancer or tumors, which may then be surgically removed (excised).

The two-fold goal is to treat the problem and achieve the most aesthetically pleasing result possible.
