Oral Pathology Fresno California

Oral Pathology Fresno California

Our mouth is the window to our overall health. Therefore it is important that the oral cavity is free from all forms of diseases and defects. Oral pathology is an area of dental medicine which is dedicated to the study of diseases related to the oral cavity, jaws, temporomandibular joint and salivary glands. The aim is to perform a thorough check of the oral cavity and make sure that no problems exist. In this regard, oral cancer screening is one of the things we do at our Fresno, California office.

Our oral cavity is covered with a thin layer of skin called mucosa which is different from the skin in other parts of the body. The color and the smoothness of the skin are totally different. Changes in the color of skin or thickening in areas of the oral cavity may be indicators of oral cancer. Following are some of the common symptoms.

  • Tongue pain
  • Soreness which does not fade away
  • Thickening of skin in a particular area
  • Difficulty chewing food
  • White or reddish patches

It is important to note that pain is not always a symptom associated with oral cancer. Oral cancer examination can help in early detection. If you have any queries regarding oral cancer contact our office.
