Oral Pathology in Northern Virginia

Like other areas of the body, the soft tissues and bones of the mid-face, lower jaw and mouth may be the site of development of cysts, benign and malignant tumors, and other pathologic processes.

Drs. LaBriola and Zadeh can provide biopsy, definitive treatment and counseling relating to these conditions. A consultation appointment will be scheduled, at which we will conduct an examination and take any necessary X-rays before any surgery is scheduled. Most biopsies are done in the office, but any extensive surgical procedures may be scheduled at a local hospital, usually on an outpatient basis. Biopsies are generally sent to a qualified oral pathologist for microscopic examination.

What is oral pathology?

Oral pathology is the treatment of cysts and tumors in the mouth, lower jaw or face.

What’s involved with getting a biopsy?

A biopsy involves the removal or a piece of the suspicious tissue, which is then sent to a laboratory for a microscopic examination that will accurately diagnose the problem.

Oral Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment

Our oral surgeons are trained to diagnose and treat oral disease, including oral cancer. More than 48,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer each year, according to the Oral Cancer Foundation. Early detection saves lives.

Our oral surgeons can assess abnormal growths in the mouth, including lumps or thickenings, and perform biopsies to determine the cause. The first step is to get an oral cancer screening at our offices in Annandale, Manassas, and Woodbridge.

Dr. Jackson was extremely professional, patient, informative as well as friendly and enjoyable. She explained everything in great detail before my procedure. My personal dentist, Dr. Jones, recommended her. I knew if Dr. Jones recommended her she had to be great. My procedure was exactly as she explained. Her assistant Rosemary was also wonderful. I highly recommend Dr. Jackson to anyone reading t…

I have been a patient for many years. Whenever I have needed a tooth removed I have gone to them. My experience has been pain free during the procedure and very little pain or swelling after. I would highly recommend the doctors at Northern Virginia Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Associates.

Dr. Zadeh is not only a very qualified oral surgeon, he is a very warm and easy to communicate with kind of person. I had a lower canine that had been root-canaled some time ago and ended up having a painful infection. He took out my infected tooth like he pulled out a needle from a butter, not feeling any pain at all. He then placed an imediate implant. He is very efficient in using his time and…

I had all 4 wisdom teeth removed yesterday by Dr. Zadeh. I was very nervous because this was my first surgery ever. All of the staff was was great and explained every step including the sedation process and aftercare instructions. Before I took any medication, my pain was a 3/4 out of 10. This was a very positive experience and I highly recommend this practice.

Evaluation and explanation of my needs was quick, efficient, thorough and clearly explained. I can’t imagine a better oral su…
