What Is Oral Pathology?
Oral cancer is a dangerous disease that affects thousands of people every year. If not recognized and treated quickly, the results can be deadly. Oral pathology refers to the diagnosis and treatment of mouth diseases, including oral cancer, tumors, cysts, and lesions. Dr. Robert C. Ryan, our board-certified oral surgeon, offers prompt oral pathology screenings and biopsies to help catch and treat any issues before they fully develop. In Dr. Ryan’s office, one of our primary concerns is diagnosing oral cancer, which affects over 53,000 Americans a year. Using our expertise and advanced technology, we provide patients with comprehensive oral cancer treatment.
Symptoms of Oral Pathology (Oral Cancer)
How Pathology Screenings Are Done
Tooth extractions are performed every week, if not every day, at NuSet Dental Implants and Oral Surgery. As a result, we’ve refined our process keeping your comfort as our top priority. When you arrive, we’ll show you to your private surgical suite before administering the anesthesia services previously discussed in your consultation. You’ll quickly feel relaxed and will have no pain during your procedure. Depending on the level of sedation you receive, the most you’ll feel is minor pressure as we remove your tooth. If you have an impacted tooth, more extensive work may be required to gain access to your tooth and detach its roots. However, each step of this process will be explained to you in detail before treatment begins. Recovery periods typically last a few days during which time we may prescribe medication to minimize any discomfort. We’ll review post-extraction directions in-depth in order to avoid complications like dry socket and ensure a swift and easy recovery!
Constant Vigilance Keeps You Safe
One of the best ways to monitor your oral and overall health is to perform timely checks for symptoms at home. If you notice any pain, discomfort or bumps in your mouth or throat, seek appropriate care right away. Often, the beginning stages of oral pathology involve red or white patches in your mouth, chronic sore throat, hoarseness, and/or difficulty chewing or swallowing. Oral cancers or other conditions can develop at any age, so it’s recommended that patients stay vigilant about monitoring their oral and general health.
