The oral pathology treatment process

Every patient is unique, and so is their individual care. We’ll tailor your treatment to suit your needs, but here’s what you can expect from the overall process:


Comprehensive exam

The first step to any oral pathology treatment plan is a thorough exam to assess your oral health, risk factors, symptoms and identify any potential problems. During this exam, your oral and maxillofacial surgeon will perform a careful assessment of your mouth, a physical examination of your neck and head, and take any necessary x-rays or other imaging tests.


Diagnosis and treatment planning

Based on the results of your exam, your dentist will make a diagnosis and create a customized treatment plan. Treatment options may include medication, biopsies, surgery, or other interventions—depending on your condition.


Treatment and follow-up care

After you have recovered, your oral surgeon will recommend the next steps including follow-up care to help you maintain your oral health and prevent future problems. This may include regular exams, routine imaging, additional surgical treatment, or lifestyle changes.
