Oral Medicine is the discipline of dentistry concerned with the oral health care of medically complex patients – including the diagnosis and management of medical conditions that affect the oral and maxillofacial region. We advocate for optimal oral health and healthcare for everyone with medical illness. Oral Medicine practitioners are experts in complex oral and dental situations. They are familiar with and able to treat many complex conditions.
A variety of abnormal lesions may arise in the oral cavity. These lesions may require removal and biopsy for a proper diagnosis. Depending on the size and location of the lesion this is accomplished by carefully removing the lesion after application of local anesthetic.
