Oral Cancer Screening in Vail, CO

Oral Cancer Screening in Vail, COOral pathology involves diagnosing and treating diseases of the mouth such as cysts, tumors, and precancerous and cancerous lesions.  Many patients experience unusual changes in the mouth, teeth, gums, tongue, or throat that may be caused by disease.  Diagnosing diseases in the mouth as early as possible is very important.  The earlier a disease is diagnosed, the faster treatment and healing can begin. 


What can I expect during the exam?

Your doctor may perform a number of tests or exams to determine what is causing the symptoms you are experiencing and diagnose the disease.  Usually, biopsy or tissue removal is the best way to determine a diagnosis as the sample is sent to a laboratory for analysis. 


How will I be treated?

Treatments vary depending on the type of disease that is present.  Each patient’s needs will be addressed on a case-by-case basis in order to achieve the best results.  Our office is dedicated to making any procedure performed as comfortable as possible.
