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

  • Reddish or whitish patches in the mouth
  • Recurring sore that fails to heal
  • Bleeding
  • New lump or bump in the mouth
  • Chronic sore throat
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Difficulty chewing

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!

The Staff was very helpful, Chrissy made my visit wonderful, she made me feel at ease and helped me to not be apprehensive. Dr. Loveless did a great job of extracting my tooth. I would highly recommend him and his staff.

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

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!

We were headed to Florida when my son came down with an abscessed tooth. Dr. Loveless was able to get us in and remove his tooth before our flight. I can’t thank Laurie enough for making what could be a scary experience for my 7 year old, a fun, pleasant one. I can’t express how thankful I am for her treating him like her own and making sure he was comfortable. She went above and beyond in my eyes and made this nervous mom rest a little easier. Thank you both!!!

I went to get my wisdom teeth removed a few days ago & i could not wait to leave a review. My experience was absolutely PHENOMENAL. I wish i could give them more stars. Everyone at the facility was nice, accommodating and very professional. The procedure was done very quickly and they even gave me Ted Drew’s afterwards! My recovery has been unbelievably easy & fast. I had all 4 wisdom teeth extracted and there was very little swelling. I’ve barely had to take any pain medication and i was even able to eat the next day! I’m convinced they are magicians because the entire experience was just so great it seemed unreal! I never leave reviews but I just had to after receiving such amazing treatment. They definitely live up to the reviews!

My father had gone for a root canal the night before and a root fracture was discovered so the tooth could not be saved. We called the next morning to set up an oral surgery appointment and Dr. Loveless was able to accommodate him the same day. The staff explained everything in great detail regarding finances and post operative instructions. Dr. Loveless also discovered another area of concern and removed an additional tooth. This was extremely helpful since my dad is on blood thinners and we really wanted to avoid having to make two trips. Very clean office as well. Will recommend everyone we know to the practice.
