Oral pathology refers to a group of diseases that affects your mouth and face, including the jaws, joints, and muscles. Without professional examinations, the beginning stages of diseases like oral cancer, often go undetected by the patient. Our oral surgeons are experts in diagnosing and treating oral pathology and can determine if your health is in danger through comprehensive evaluation and oral cancer screenings. We can help you stay healthy by routinely assessing the health of your mouth and facial structures and assisting you in developing better habits to reduce your risk for oral disease. If you are experiencing symptoms of oral pathology, we recommend you schedule an evaluation and oral cancer screening with our oral surgeons as soon as possible.
Symptoms of Oral Pathology
Red or white patches of skin inside the mouth
A sore that fails to heal and bleeds easily
A lump or thickening of the skin inside of the mouth
Chronic sore throat or hoarseness
Difficulty in chewing or swallowing
Stay Informed with Oral Cancer Screenings
Routine oral cancer screenings at our Amesbury, MA surgical facility is the best way to stay informed about oral disease. This simple and painless evaluation involves checking for changes in the texture and color of the skin inside your mouth and tongue. We’ll also check for cysts, lumps, skin thickening, and tumors inside the mouth. If you wear dentures or partials, we’ll make sure the tissue beneath is free from suspicious areas as well. If we determine that certain areas of tissue need evaluation, we perform a biopsy and the sample will be evaluated for oral disease. While a diagnosis is never what you want to hear, know that our oral surgeons are specially trained in oral pathology. We can treat your oral disease with minimally invasive laser therapy and can handle any complications that arise. You’ll have the expert care you need here if you’re diagnosed and skilled evaluation and screenings to help prevent disease in the future.
Don’t wait to get your screening. Contact us today.
