BIOPSY

BIOPSY

Biopsy is the extraction of a tissue sample in order to determine if it contains any disease. In dentistry, we use teeth and gums for biopsy, usually to diagnose oral cancer. In cases such as these, a "brush biopsy" is used in order to identify any oral lesions that permit any further attention.

If you have any lesions in your mouth that are unnacounted for, then we advise you to consult your dentist to have them examined. Even if they are not cancerous, it is important to have them checked nonetheless.
