Tooth Removal

Biopsy – Similar to Oral Cancer Screening

Any type of abnormal growth in the mouth should be removed. Most of the growths inside the mouth are benign and can be removed if diagnosed early. Usually a small incision is made around the abnormal growth and stitches are placed.

Assessment of Oral Disease

Drs. Musser, Richards, and Kirkpatrick are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of these problems and may work with your physician in treating you if you are in need of oral surgery near Orlando and Tampa, FL or other procedures.

Oral Cancer Screening – Similar to Biopsy
