At The Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Center of South Louisiana, we understand the concern that comes with noticing an unusual bump or growth in your mouth, on your gums, tongue, or inner cheeks. While an unidentified growth can be unsettling, our team is here to provide reassurance and guidance. We offer comprehensive diagnostic services to help you identify the cause of your oral abnormality. This often includes cysts, lesions, and in some cases, tumors. Once we have a clear diagnosis, we can discuss the appropriate treatment plan.

How We Diagnose Oral Abnormalities

Our diagnostic process typically involves a thorough physical examination, dental scans, and a biopsy. Once a biopsy is performed, Dr. Brandner will send the sample tissue to an oral pathologist to determine if the lesion is cancerous.

Signs to Consider a Consultation

  • Unexplained growths in your mouth
  • Difficulty chewing, swallowing, or speaking due to an oral abnormality
  • Red or white patches inside your mouth
  • Chronic sore throat or hoarseness
  • Mouth sores that bleed easily or don’t heal

What To Expect During Your Appointment

Most oral pathology appointments involve minimal discomfort. We typically perform a physical examination and review your dental scans first. Biopsies, if necessary, involve a slight pinch with a needle.
