Oral Pathology | Leominster & Gardner MA

Oral pathology is the diagnosis and treatment of diseases that occur in the mouth. Routine dental checkups with your dentist and good oral hygiene behaviors are necessary to keep your smile as healthy as possible. Unfortunately, even with the best health habits, our mouth is particularly susceptible to the development of pathologies. Many oral pathologies are not necessarily painful, and it is important to see a specialist for proper evaluation if you notice a change in your mouth.

At Central Mass Oral Surgery, our oral surgeons are experts in treating oral and maxillofacial pathology. Our staff can schedule a consultation to perform an oral exam and determine if an oral pathology treatment is necessary for your current health. Dr. Colarusso, Dr. Baran and Dr. Kobakov can help maintain your smile using screenings or oral procedures at both offices in Leominster, MA, and Gardner, MA.

Oral Pathology Symptoms

Many oral pathologies do not cause an immediate, noticeable change in the mouth, which is why it is important to be aware of symptoms. If you notice any of the symptoms below, it is important to seek evaluation and treatment.

  • Swelling that only increases
  • A constant sore throat or extreme difficulty in swallowing
  • Red or white patches that appear on the tongue, cheeks or the lining of the mouth
  • Sores in the mouth that bleed persistently and do not heal
  • Thickening of the lining of the mouth/lumps forming on the neck or inside the mouth

Many of the symptoms above act as indicators or warning signs of a more serious problem or can develop into a more complex condition if not immediately treated. If you can notice any abnormalities, we encourage you to contact our office staff to schedule a consultation as soon as possible.

Diseases in Oral Pathology

There is a wide variety of oral pathologies and the treatment recommended by our surgeons will depend on your particular condition. Some of the most common pathologies diagnosed and treated by oral surgeons include

  • Cysts
  • Ulcers
  • Tumors
  • Salivary gland disease
  • Oral cancer
  • Viral, bacterial, or fungal infections

Our oral surgeons can complete a full evaluation of your condition and recommend treatment during your consultation. Sometimes, a biopsy is recommended to assess the situation thoroughly. A patient’s current oral health, medical history, and preferences will all be taken into consideration when selecting the method for treatment.

Oral Pathology Treatment at Central Mass Oral Surgery

Drs. Colarusso, Baran and Kobakov highly recommend that patients maintain oral hygiene habits at home and have regular visits to your primary dentist for your gums and the lining of your mouth. Our friendly office staff provides a welcoming environment for every patient visit, and we are happy to schedule your oral pathology evaluation at either of our practice locations in Leominster, MA, or Gardner, MA.

Patient Review by Kathryn P

I was very nervous to come into the office, but CMOS calmed my nerves. Stephanie was able to hold a hand and give some great advice. Dr. Kobakov is very good at what he does and made the process effortless. A nice stop in the recovery room with Kelly left me with no questions and Melissa made for a stress free checkout with some laughs. An experience I have never had while visiting a doctor’s office! Thank you CMOS for helping me!!
