Oral pathology involves diagnosing and treating diseases of the mouth such as cysts, tumors, and precancerous and cancerous lesions. Many patients experience unusual changes in the mouth, teeth, gums, tongue, or throat that may be caused by disease. Diagnosing diseases in the mouth as early as possible is very important. The earlier a disease is diagnosed, the faster treatment and healing can begin.
What can I expect during the exam?
Part of a comprehensive examination in our office is a screening for oral cancer and other unusual oral conditions. Should anything unusual be found we will discuss with you the options for first determining just what the problem is and second the best way to manage the problem.
How will I be treated?
Treatments vary depending on the type of disease that is present. Each patient’s needs will be addressed on a case-by-case basis in order to achieve the best results. Our office is dedicated to making any procedure performed as comfortable as possible.
