ORAL PATHOLOGY: Detect & Diagnose Oral Diseases

Connection between Oral and Overall Health

Dr. Donald and Dr. Alissa Roman can understand more about your oral health and the development of dental diseases through the study of oral pathology. The Roman Dental Arts team detects and diagnoses the connections between oral health and overall health problems in order to provide our patients with optimal care.

We are dedicated to helping you maintain optimal health. This includes striving to detect and diagnose any conditions or abnormalities as early as possible, so you can receive the treatment you need. During your visit to our office, we will check for changes in your oral health and appearance, as well as any other abnormalities that may signal a pathological issue.

The most serious of these is oral cancer, which has a much higher chance of being successfully treated when it is identified early. We may also detect diseases such as salivary gland disorders, mumps, odontogenic infection and more.

Warning signs of a pathological process or cancerous growth

The following signs may signal a pathological process or cancerous growth:

  • A chronic sore throat or hoarseness
  • A sore in the mouth or on the lips, face or neck that bleeds easily and does not heal within two weeks
  • Difficulty or pain when chewing or swallowing
  • A lump or thickening in the skin lining the inside of the mouth
  • Red, white or speckled red-and-white patches in the mouth
  • A change in how the teeth fit together or in how your dentures or other oral appliances fit

If you notice any of these symptoms, we encourage you to contact our office for a thorough exam. We may use several types of diagnostic techniques and tools, including radiographic, microscopic, biochemical and other in-office examinations.

For more information, please feel free to contact us today.
