Oral Pathology

Woman smiling while at dental officeSurgeons undertake great care when a patient comes into their office. It is important for the surgeon to perform a comprehensive oral examination to determine the extent of the problem or condition to be able to come up with an effective solution for the patient. This is what happens with oral pathology, which involves the surgeon assessing your oral health to determine which disorders might be affecting and limiting you from achieving a bright and perfect smile. At Advanced Center for Oral Surgery, Facial Surgery and Dental Implants you will find a caring team of specialists that will ensure you get the personalized treatment plan that you require so you can get back to optimal oral health.

What is Oral Pathology?

Oral pathology goes hand in hand with maxillofacial pathology. They are a dental specialty that requires the surgeon to study and diagnose jaw and mouth disorders. This might also involve assessing any problems with your face or skin. An oral pathologist is well trained and highly skilled to explore your dental health to determine if any diseases are affecting you.

Some of the diseases and abnormalities of interest for an oral pathologist include oral cancer, geographic tongue, oral ulcers, periodontal (gum) disease, tongue enlargement (macroglossia), jaw misalignment, and cleft lip or cleft palate. Our surgeons can handle a wide range of dental conditions and it is, therefore, important to talk to one of our surgeons to determine the best treatment plan for your case.

When Do I Require an Oral Pathologist?

You may require the services of an oral pathologist if you experience oral health deterioration. Many oral conditions are in the category of maxillofacial and oral pathology, and it is important to determine what makes you a candidate to see an oral pathologist. For instance, if you experience excessive bleeding in your mouth, severe throat hoarseness or soreness, and white or red patches on the tongue or cheeks, it could be an indication that you are at risk of developing oral cancer. This would signal that you require a comprehensive assessment by a pathologist. It might turn out to be a completely different condition requiring a different treatment plan. That is why it is vital to include a pathologist in the diagnosis and treatment plan.

If you or a loved one are experiencing oral health problems, it is important to see a pathologist immediately to ensure that the problem is identified early on for an effective treatment plan.
