Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are experts in performing screenings and various treatments for oral diseases and infections, including cysts, tumors, oral cancer, and much more. Our oral surgeon, Dr. Bryce B. Heiner, has years of experience diagnosing oral pathology symptoms. Once he has accurately diagnosed your oral pathology, Dr. Heiner can discuss your options with you and determine the proper treatment plan to protect your long-term oral health.
Symptoms of Oral Pathology
A few common symptoms of an oral pathology are
- Sores inside the mouth that continue to bleed and not heal
- Swelling that continues to get worse and doesn’t go down
- Reddish or whitish patches on the tongue, inside the cheeks, or lining of the mouth
- Persistent sore throat or problems with swallowing
- Thickening of the lining of the mouth and/or lumps forming on the neck or inside the mouth
If you notice any of these irregularities occurring within your mouth or surrounding areas, do not hesitate to contact our office to schedule an initial oral consultation appointment.
The best way to prevent oral diseases is by maintaining oral hygiene habits at home as well as scheduling dental exams on a regular basis. By taking a mirror and inspecting the inside of your mouth, including underneath the tongue and the roof of your mouth, you are making sure you notice any changes that may be signs of oral pathology. These two forms of preventive treatment are an excellent way to make sure symptoms are not missed or accidentally ignored. If you or your dentist notice anything suspicious, you may be referred to Oral & Facial Surgery of New Mexico. Your dentist or general physician can refer you to any of our two offices in Las Cruces, NM, and Roswell, NM, to schedule your oral consultation appointment with Dr. Heiner.
