Throughout the medical field, a biopsy is simply the removal of a tissue sample to determine if it is diseased. In dentistry, teeth and gums are sent for biopsy. The role of a biopsy in the dental industry is to diagnose or rule out oral cancers. In these instances, a brush biopsy or a conventional biopsy is used to identify oral lesions that warrant further attention.

If you notice an unexplained lesion in your mouth or a non healing area of irritation that has been present for over ten days, please call to arrange for an evaluation with Dr. Solomon. The visit will be quick and is designed to identify the change in your mouth, and to head off a more serious medical problem.
