Oral Pathology

Typically, the tissues inside your mouth should be smooth and coral pink. When a shift occurs in and around the mouth, it should be assessed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Pain does not always appear with oral pathologies, so knowing how your mouth typically looks and feels is essential—conducting an oral self-exam at least once in a while is a healthy habit to get into. When you better understand your mouth, you know if and when changes occur. When detected early, most oral pathologies can be quickly treated. A biopsy is generally conducted to verify a diagnosis and prepare the proper treatment. An oral biopsy is a small tissue sample of the concerned area sent off to a lab for diagnosis. Dr. Jonathan K. Nakano can select the proper treatment from the pathologist’s findings.

Signs and Symptoms of Oral Pathologies

Most oral pathologies are harmless, but it is necessary to rule out more severe diseases and conditions, such as oral cancer. The signs and symptoms may differ from patient to patient. Expected changes in and around the mouth that need an oral and maxillofacial surgeon include:
  • Patches of red or white in the mouth
  • A wound that bleeds quickly or does not heal
  • Any lump or inconsistency
  • A chronic painful throat and/or hoarseness
  • If you have noticed any irregular changes in your mouth, please call our office to schedule an appointment.
