Oral Pathology

If you notice an abnormality in your mouth's lining, on your tongue, or in your jaw, you should seek an evaluation by an oral surgeon for diagnosis and treatment.

Our team at Hill & Ioppolo Oral & Dental Implant Surgery of Lubbock can assist you with oral pathology screenings or treatments to maintain your smile. Oral pathology is the diagnosis and corresponding treatment of any diseases that occur in your mouth.

It is important to be conscious of any symptoms that arise in your mouth — the earlier a pathological process is caught, the easier it is to treat. If you or your dentist notice any changes in the lining of your mouth, our oral surgeon, Dr. Robert B. Ioppolo, is more than happy to give a second opinion. A few of the warning signs of a potential oral disease include:
