We Use Oral Pathology
to Diagnose Various Diseases 

Our periodontist knows how diseases can affect the health of your teeth, gums, and jaw bone with the study of oral pathology. Because of this understanding, we are able to do a better job at treating the patients who visit Montgomery County Periodontal Associates. Please contact Dr. Miles Mason today if you would like to learn more about oral pathology in The Woodlands, TX, or  Conroe, TX.

At our office, we are dedicated to helping you stay in optimal oral and overall health. This includes striving to detect and diagnose any conditions or abnormalities as early as possible so you can receive the treatment you need. During your visits to our office, our periodontist and team will check for changes in your oral health and appearance, as well as any other abnormalities that may signal a pathological process. The most serious of these is oral cancer, which has a much higher chance of being successfully treated when it is identified early. We may also detect diseases such as salivary gland disorders, mumps, odontogenic infection, and more. The following signs may signal a pathological process or cancerous growth:

  • A chronic sore throat or hoarseness
  • A sore in the mouth or on the lips, face, or neck that bleeds easily and does not heal within two weeks
  • Difficulty or pain when chewing or swallowing
  • A lump or thickening in the skin lining the inside of the mouth
  • Red, white, or speckled red and white patches in the mouth
  • A change in how the teeth fit together or in how your dentures or other oral appliances fit

If you notice any of these symptoms, we encourage you to contact our office for a thorough exam. We may use several types of diagnostic techniques and tools, including radiographic, microscopic, biochemical, and other in-office examinations. For more information, please feel free to contact us today.

Dr. Mason and his staff have been fantastic.  Dr. Mason has performed periodontal surgery on me twice and always made himself available for after hours care and questions.  The surgical results turned out well and working with his staff has always been a nice experience.
