This is Dr. David

what do you mean by "shadow"? is this something he saw on the dental xrays?

you need to see an oral surgeon to biopsy an area of bone errosion if there is bone erosion.

I would get copies of your xray reports. I would be happy to review them with you.

So. How can I find. That oral. Surgeon???
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
you can ask your dentist to refer you to see an oral surgeon or ENT doctor if you have a shadow on your bone which needs to be evaluated.it could be osteonecrosis or something else.but you might need a biopsy.dentist don't do biopsies of bone in the mouth.oral surgeons or ENT ear nose throat doctors could possibly do a biopsy.
