Services Medical & Oral Diseases

Medical and oral diseases of the mouth, face and jaws include: mouth ulcers, white lesions (such as Lichen planus), infections, sore mouth, swellings & oral cancer.

They can be caused by disorders of the immune system, inflammation, infection, developmental, nutritional, medications and neoplasia (cancer). We are trained in both Medicine and Dentistry and have further specialist training that means we are well versed in mouth, teeth and jaw conditions.

Initially there will be a clinical evaluation followed by further investigations like x-rays, CT or MRI scans, biopsy, swabs and blood tests.

The presence of abnormal tissue in the mouth or jaws requires further evaluation through oral pathology. This usually requires a biopsy to determine the diagnosis followed by surgical management of the abnormal tissue.
