Oral Pathology

Receive Prompt and Accurate Treatment

Oral surgeons are qualified to diagnose and treat abnormalities of the mouth, salivary glands, and jaws. While many changes to the mouth turn out to be benign, it is always a good idea to seek a professional evaluation.

A common area for an abnormality to occur is the mucosa, the pink-colored mucus membrane that lines the inside of the mouth. Abnormalities may include:

  • Mucoceles
  • Chronic ulcers
  • Canker sores
  • Fever blisters
  • Fibromas
  • Cysts and tumors
  • Salivary gland disease
  • Oral cancer

Changes to the mouth that may require further evaluation from an oral surgeon include:

  • Red or white patches in the mouth
  • Chronic hoarseness or sore throat
  • Chewing or swallowing difficulties
  • A painful sore, or a sore that fails to heal

If needed, we will take 3D Scans to get a more detailed look at your mouth and facial structures.

When you seek an evaluation from an oral surgeon, such as the specialists at Whitewater Oral Surgery Group | Dental Implant Experts, a biopsy may be recommended. A biopsy is a minimally-invasive procedure that involves taking a small tissue sample of the affected area, which is then sent out to a lab. We offer several anesthesia options to keep patients comfortable during any surgical procedure. The oral surgeon will formulate a treatment plan based on the results of the biopsy.
