In a healthy mouth, the inner lining will be covered with mucosa, a special type of skin that is smooth and pink. When changes to the appearance of the mucosa are noted, this could be a warning sign that something is going on with the pathology of your mouth. The following can be signs that a pathological process or cancerous growth is beginning:

  • Reddish patches (erythroplasia) or whitish patches (leukoplakia) in the mouth
  • A sore that fails to heal and bleeds easily
  • A lump or thickening on the skin lining the inside of the mouth
  • Chronic sore throat or hoarseness and/or difficulty in chewing or swallowing

These changes can be detected on the lips, cheeks, palate, and gum tissue around the teeth, tongue, face, and/or neck.

Oral Pathology Procedures

Our Oral Pathology is tailored to our patients needs. We can provide advanced imaging tests, and physical examination. Once the information has been gathered Dr Akbiyik can determine which oral maxillofacial treatment would be most appropriate. We then share our maxillofacial treatment plan with you to provide a space for active discussion on how best to proceed.

Dr Akbiyik has a wealth of experience in diagnosing and treating these conditions. By choosing to have your treatment at Brisbane Maxillofacial Surgery, you can be assured of personalised care using the latest technology and techniques.
