Signs and Symptoms

Our oral surgeons, Dr. Marc Dentico-Olin and Dr. Lester Machado, have several years of experience treating oral pathologies in San Diego, California. Since most oral pathologies are painless, they require a thorough examination to be detected.
Diseases such as salivary gland problems, odontogenic infection, tongue enlargement are a few of the most prominent cases of oral pathologies. But, the most severe oral pathology is oral cancer. When identified early, its progression can be prevented. The following signs and symptoms may indicate the presence of oral pathology or malignant growth:
  • Hoarseness or persistent sore throat
  • Any sore with continuous bleeding and slow healing
  • Difficulty or pain in chewing or swallowing
  • Lump in the mouth’s lining
  • Thickening of the skin lining inside the mouth
  • Red, white, or a combination of red and white patches in the mouth
  • A change in teeth arrangement or oral appliances’ fit
If you see any of these signs or symptoms, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team for a comprehensive examination.
