Signs of Mouth and Jaw Diseases

It’s important to visit the dentist every six months for exams. At those exams, our dentist may notice abnormalities and refer you to our pathologist.

In the meantime, be aware of any frequent throat hoarseness or soreness. You might experience red or white patches on your cheeks and tongue. You should also watch for sores in your mouth. If your mouth sores are bleeding excessively, be sure to contact our pathologist.
