The delicate tissues of the mouth are subject to a number of oral diseases, all of which can easily be managed here at South Florida Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery for the patients in Jupiter, West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, and the surrounding cities in Florida.

What is the Management of Oral Disease?

The management of oral disease involves providing ongoing care for individuals diagnosed with a disease of the bone, gums, teeth, mouth, or salivary glands. The oral diseases we treat here at South Florida Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery include, but are not limited to:

  • Oral Cancer
  • Canker Sores
  • Gum Disease
  • Oral Herpes
  • Candidiasis, better known as “thrush”

Benefits of Managing Oral Disease

When diagnosed with a serious oral disease, such as cancer, managing your condition is literally a matter of life or death. If you have another oral disease, you may notice benefits such as:

  • Fewer outbreaks that are shorter in duration
  • Less discomfort
  • A reduced chance of the disease or infection spreading

What is the Procedure for Managing Oral Disease?

This will depend upon the exact condition you have and its severity. One of our doctors will provide you with more details only after making a firm diagnosis.

Preparing to Manage Oral Disease

You will require a complete oral exam, and may even need to undergo dental work such as a tooth cleaning to remove plaque and bacteria from the mouth. You should stop smoking and using alcohol, regardless of the type of oral disease you have.

Recovery from the Management of Oral Disease

You may notice some discomfort, numbness, or tingling in the mouth, but these symptoms should not be severe. Contact our office at once if you notice a relapse in your condition, or are experiencing extreme discomfort.

How much Does Management of Oral Disease Cost in Jupiter?

Our benefits coordinator will serve as a liaison between you and your insurance company to determine what if any benefits are available, as well as what your copay and deductible amounts are. Once we have determined your out-of-pocket costs, we will then discuss our many payment options, which include cash, personal check, and major credit cards.

Many of our patients are also able to afford treatment by applying for CareCredit® financing. CareCredit® is in itself a credit card that can be used at leading healthcare providers such as dentists, optometrists, and general practitioners. This makes it a great option if you are considering treatment from more than one provider. Even those with less-than-perfect credit scores are often approved for CareCredit® and are able to obtain payment plans they can easily fit into their monthly budget.

What to Expect During Your Consultation

We will examine your teeth and the soft tissues of your mouth to determine if an underlying condition exists. Depending upon our findings, we may also ask for X-rays or take a biopsy of any lesions we discover.
