Oral Pathology in Coquitlam

Oral pathology is similar to oral medicine but is even more specialized to focus specifically on the diagnosis of oral diseases and disorders. Pathology is the study of the causes of diseases, and many pathologists work in laboratory environments to identify diseases from tissue taken from biopsies. Oral pathologists look at irregular lumps, swelling, skin patches, ulcers, and other abnormalities on the mouth, head, and neck.

Examination by an Oral Pathologist

After examination by your dentist at Coquitlam City Dentist and a referral to an oral pathologist, your oral pathologist will perform another examination. In addition to examining the affected areas, the pathologist will ask about your medical history and lifestyle to try and get a sense of what might be causing the abnormalities in your mouth.

Testing by an Oral Pathologist

Oral pathologists use all kinds of dental technology to assist them in diagnosing patients. They may use a variety of scanners and examination devices to view things going on in the mouth that aren’t visible to the naked eye. Dentists might even call them to help them understand data from examinations in trickier situations. Pathologists also use biopsies to test for and diagnose oral cancer.
