These cells are put on a glass slide and recolored with color, so they can be seen under a magnifying lens. In the event that any cells seem anomalous, a more profound biopsy will be performed.

Oral and maxillofacial pathology, recently named oral pathology, is a claim to fame required with the finding and investigation of the circumstances and end results of maladies influencing the oral and maxillofacial areas (for example the mouth, the jaws and the face).
