Oral Pathology

Dr. Cullum is experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of both benign and malignant conditions that occur in the mouth, head, and neck region.

Symptoms of Oral Pathology include:

  • Red or white patches in the mouth

  • Sores that fail to heal or bleed easily

  • Lumps or thickening in the gums

  • Chronic sore throat or rasping

  • Difficulty chewing or swallowing

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

As an oral and maxillofacial practice, our office treats:

  • Benign cysts and tumors of the jaw bone

  • Non-healing ulcerations in the oral cavity

  • Bisphosphonate-related Osteonecrosis of the jaw

  • Red and white legions of the oral cavity (leukoplakia and erythroplakia)

At your oral pathology appointment, Dr. Cullum will perform a through exam, focusing on the area of concern. He will evaluate the area and may recommend a biopsy or removal of the legion. After the specimen is evaluated and diagnosed by a pathologist, we will discuss with you options for treatment.

We highly recommend performing an oral cancer self-examination every month. DO NOT ignore suspicious lumps or sores. If you have any concerns or questions, please contact your dentist for an evaluation an referral to our office, if deemed necessary.

Steps for Treatment

How to Get the Best Maxillofacial and Oral Surgery in Idaho

  • Step 1: Schedule Your Appointment
    If you need an oral or maxillofacial surgeon, or you notice any alarming symptoms, give us a call right away. We will be happy to set up a consultation and are ready to answer any questions you might have.
  • Step 2: Get an In-Depth Consultation
    At your initial appointment, we will go over your concerns and assess the situation. We may decide to take x-rays or perform other diagnostic procedures. Then we will walk you through your options to determine the one that is right for you.
  • Step 3: Prepare for Your Surgery
    Once you arrive for your procedure, we will walk you through everything you need to know so you know what to expect during and after the procedure. While many oral procedures are quick and require minimal downtime, some may require general anesthesia, so you may wish to have someone to drive you home.
  • Step 4: Your Procedure
    Once all your questions have been answered and you have the information you need to move forward, we will begin your procedure. We offer a wide range of sedation techniques, including nitrous oxide sedation, oral sedation, and dental IV sedation for your comfort.
  • Step 5: Receive Post-Care Instructions
    After your procedure, our highly-trained staff will lead you to our comfortable recovery area and give you detailed instructions on how to care for your incisions to protect against infection and encourage fast healing. We will also generally schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure you are healing correctly.
