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.

Our team of oral and maxillofacial surgeons 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.

Great experience. Everyone was calm and very reassuring during both my consultation and wisdom teeth removal visit. Despite my anxiety, everyone spent their time seeing if I had questions and tried to create a relaxing atmosphere before I had to go through with the surgery. Highly recommend anyone coming here. Clean and modern office with a 10/10 experience throughout.

Had my wisdom teeth extracted yesterday and opted out of sedation. Needless to say, I was a bit nervous. But after 25 minutes I was checking out and felt great. I couldn’t talk much, but the entire process was fast and efficient. Now 24 hours later, I’m thinking I would be perfectly fine to go back to work tomorrow morning! I am very appreciative that I was recommended to this OMFS off…

I was referred to NVOMSA by our family dentist, and I have t say I was very impressed with Dr. Zadeh and his staff. My son had all 4 wisdom teeth extracted and had a great experience. The procedure took about 1/2 and hour and my son is recovering very well, miniaml swelling. Overall and excellent experience. They did a great job with my son’s wisdom teeth extractions.

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’m afraid of all doctors but this was the best experience I’ve ever had. Everyone was extremely nice, with a warm inviting atmosphere. Their manager, Kelly was patient with all of my questions and helped me without hesitation. If I hear of someone needing surgery, this is who I’d recommend.

My son recently got his wisdom teeth extracted. Dr. Zaheh made my son feel very comfortable and relaxed. The procedure did not last long at all which led to a quick recovery. My son had absolutely no swelling which was unbelievable! He hardly experienced any pain either. He went out with friends a few days later and will recommend others to Dr. Zadeh!
