Oral Pathology Exam

Oral pathology is the diagnosis and treatment of mouth diseases, including tumors, cysts and lesions. These lesions can either be cancerous or non-cancerous. Patients can experience changes in their mouths, teeth, gums, tongues and/or throats that can be linked to a mouth disease. Early diagnosis and swift treatment is the best way to begin healing.

What should I expect during treatment?

Dr. McKenzie will perform a comprehensive examination and will likely order a number of tests in order to detect the cause of your symptoms. He will also use these findings to determine the specific disease you may have. Typically, a biopsy or tissue sample will be sent to a laboratory for in-depth analysis. This is usually the best way to diagnose your mouth disease.

For you to have the best results, your treatment plan will be customized for your specific disease. We strive to provide a pleasant experience while offering the most effective treatment possible.
