Biopsies Of Oral Cavity

Biopsies Of Oral Cavity

A biopsy of oral cavity is a dental procedure that involves the removal of a small piece of tissue from the mouth or oral cavity for microscopic examination. Biopsies are often carried out to diagnose abnormal growths, lesions, tumors, or cysts in the oral cavity. The tissue sample removed during a biopsy provides important information such as the nature of the abnormal growth or lesion.

Biopsies of the oral cavity are also used to monitor the progression of certain oral conditions, including oral cancer. By examining changes in the oral tissues, the dentist can get a better understanding of how a specific oral disease is affecting the body. However, it is important to note that not all oral growths or lesions require a biopsy. Only your dentist can tell when an oral biopsy is needed.
