Oral pathology refers to any disease that affects the oral and maxillofacial areas, including diseases of bone, soft tissue, and salivary glands. When healthy, the inside of your mouth is lined with mucosa, a special type of skin that is smooth and pink. Any changes in the appearance of the tissue around the lips, cheeks, palate, gums, teeth, tongue, face or neck should be examined, as they can be a warning signs for serious oral diseases.
