Oral Pathology is the diagnosis and treatment of oral disease or disorder. The sooner signs of disease or disorders are caught, the better. Looking for these signs is one of the many reasons a regular dental exam is so important to your health. Our team at Reno-Tahoe Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center is here to help you in finding possible troublesome spots and then receiving the correct instruction or care to alleviate the problem.
As a standard, dentists have been one of the first medical professionals to note signs of possible oral cancers. It is a regular part of your checkup appointments, and it is so simple that you may not even notice that we have done it. We simply look for signs of anything amiss or out of the normal through visual examination with a probe. If something is spotted, further examination is done, both through radiology or possibly through a simple biopsy.
