Oral Pathology


Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons are uniquely trained to diagnose and manage all oral pathology. As a licensed physician as well as oral surgeon, Dr. Loveless is equipped to treat most intraoral diseases. Common pathology include:

  • Jaw Cysts
  • Jaw Tumors
  • Oral Cancer
  • Leukoplakia
  • Osteonecrosis
  • Vesiculobullous disease: Pemphigus and Pemphigoid
  • Lichen Planus
  • TMJ Pathology
  • Infections
  • Mucoceles

In regards to oral pathology, the mouth is often associated with systemic illness as well and can often be an early warning system for other disease.  An oral cancer screening should be done at your dentist’s office every six months as well as a monthly screening at home.

Oral Disease Symptoms

  • Recurring sore that fails to heal
  • Bleeding
  • New lump or bump in the mouth

Oral pathology specialists at Archway Oral and Dental Implants can assist you if you are experiencing one of these symptoms, or have been referred by your dentist to be evaluated. Please do not hesitate in contacting our oral pathologists. Early detection and diagnosis can be lifesaving!

Dr. Loveless,

Thank you for making my tooth extraction so quick and easy. I was expecting a lot of pain. Haven’t experienced any residual pain, either since I woke up the following morning. You should hang a shingle stating “painless Dentist”!! Also, your staff is so kind and attentive. I would definitely come back when needed, and recommend you to anyone in need. Though I don’t wish that pre-surgery pain on any person (or animal) for that matter!

What can I say? No one likes to visit the dentist…especially for anything other than having their teeth cleaned. I am no different. Hated that I had to have a tooth taken out but it was necessary. I was referred here by my dentist to see Dr. Loveless. If I ever have to have anything else done from an oral surgeon, I would never wish to see anyone else. Dr. Loveless and his staff not only made me feel less anxious but they were super nice and made sure that I knew everything that was being done. I would refer them to anyone with complete confidence! If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would. I want to tell them all thank you for making this process much easier on me. Just an amazing staff and surgeon!!

Great place. Super nice staff and quick procedures. Everyone I know who got surgery done elsewhere was bedridden for a week but I had almost immediate recovery time. Highly recommend this place

Very friendly staff. Doctor spent time to explain and answer questions. Easy to make an appointment. Easy to get a recheck. Staff and Doctor made themselves readily available for questions after surgery even during holidays.

Dr. Loveless and the rest of his team was great! They made the whole experience very enjoyable. I was really nervous before going into my surgery and the team was very friendly and made me feel at ease. I will definitely recommend friends and family to Dr Loveless. He has a great bedside manner and, is very professional. I know ive found an awesome oral surgeon.
