Oral Pathology Stories
Oral diseases can range from simple canker sores to more serious issues such as oral cancer. It is important to pay attention to the health of your mucosa (the lining of the mouth), and if you notice any unusual changes, you should make an appointment to see your oral surgeon as soon as possible for a diagnosis and the formation of a treatment plan. When oral pathologies/diseases are caught early, they are more easily treated.
Most changes in the oral cavity will not be serious, but any unanticipated change in the mouth should be looked at by your oral surgeon. Our oral pathology patients share their stories here with the hope that their perspectives will help you to be more at ease during your treatment at our practice.
