Oral Pathology in Owatonna, Savage MN, Apple Valley

Below we have mentioned 3 common abnormalities that can be fixed with oral pathology. Take a look. 

  • Oral Cancer 

This is one of the most serious conditions in oral pathology. Just like any other cancer, this too can spread to your lips and throat in addition to mouth and tongue. But in most cases, oral cancer can be prevented. If you feel any unusual lumps or sore in your mouth, you should immediately consult a doctor.  

  • Mouth Ulcers 

Ulcers are small, painful lesions that usually develop inside your mouth. Majority of the times they are simply cold sores which are harmless and other times they might be malignant. Without delay you should consult an oral pathologist so that he can rule out oral cancer. 

  • Cleft Palate 

This condition arises in cases where the bony plates at the base of the skull and the soft tissues of the upper lip do not sit properly together in the formative period. This can create problems in hearing, speaking, and eating. However, this birth defect can be corrected by surgery.
