Oral Biology and Pathology
Oral biology and oral pathology are areas of advanced studies within the field of dentistry that deal with the study of the mouth and oral diseases. Oral biology refers to the study of the mouth and surrounding tissues, while oral pathology deals with the identification and treatment of diseases that affect the mouth and oral tissues.
An oral pathologist studies the causes of diseases that alter or affect the oral structures such as teeth, lips, cheeks, jaws as well as parts of the face and neck. Oral pathologists carry out dissection of biopsies then make a microscopic examination of samples of the biopsy with the use of stains. Oral Biology and Pathology has a wide scope and plays an important role in the day to day life of every individual.
