Catch Signs of Diseases Early with the Help of an Oral Pathologist

Your mouth is one of the most important organs in your body. Because of its daily usage and exposure, the mouth can be susceptible to numerous diseases and cancers. It may show indications of serious diseases through varying symptoms. When dentists cannot identify symptoms and sources of pain, they turn to oral pathology. At Midwest Oral Maxillofacial & Implant Surgery, our specialists have years of education and training in working with unique oral conditions. We are qualified to perform biopsies and diagnose unusual symptoms in the mouth.

If you experience inexplicable lumps or bleeding in the mouth, contact our St. Louis & St. Charles County oral pathologists. Contact us today.

Do You Need an Oral Pathologist in Missouri?

Our mouths are lined with a specific type of skin called mucosa that is smooth and pink. If there are alterations in appearance or texture in the mouth’s skin, this may be a warning sign for something more serious, such as oral cancer in extreme cases.

Some signs that may indicate cancerous growth or disease include:

  • Whitish patches (leukoplakia)
  • Chronic sore throats and hoarseness
  • Reddish patches (erythroplasia)
  • A thickening or lump on the skin lining inside the mouth
  • Difficulty in swallowing or chewing
  • Sores that won’t heal and consistently bleed

These symptoms can occur on the lips, tongue, gum tissue, palate, side of the mouth, and more. If you notice such signs, it is imperative you seek medical attention from a trained oral pathologist. Our oral surgeon specialists in St. Louis & South County can help.

We have years of experience administering oral biopsies and carefully examining samples to determine what possible condition a patient may be suffering. Our professionals have specific training in dealing with such conditions. Once we diagnose the issue, we can inform you of your treatment options and how to best maintain your oral health. Schedule a consultation at our practice to get started today.

Great care! If I ever have to do this again Iā€™d return. The doctor was calm and kind, explained everything to me before hand and answered all my questions. The support staff was just as sweet. The office was clean and has COVID precautions in place. Clarice V.
