Oral Pathology

Oral pathology is a specialty of dentistry that deals with diseases affecting mouth and oral mucosa, sometimes the indicator of a serious underlying health problem.

Oral pathology is important because often the best indicator of a health problem is a visual examination of the oral tissues.


For instance, oral cancer is sometimes noted by one or more of the following symptoms:

- Chronic sore throat
- Difficulty in chewing and swallowing
- Vocal strain or hoarseness
- Bleeding and sores inside the mouth that won’t heal
- Thickening or lumps of the mucosa inside the mouth
- Red and white patches in the mouth
