Oral and maxillofacial pathology refers to the diseases of the mouth and jaw. In order to obtain a definitive diagnosis, Dr. Sanjeet Chaudhary or Dr. Richard Walls will perform a biopsy on the affected area which can effect the bone or the gum tissue. During a biopsy, a small piece or the entire effected tissue is removed for microscopic evaluation.
Biopsies are often performed as an in office procedure under local anesthesia. A lab examines the tissue and provides a report to the oral surgeon for a diagnosis.
