Oral Biopsy

What Is An Oral Biopsy?

At GMGD, we’re not just dedicated to your LIVBRITE smile, we’re committed to your overall wellness. This holistic approach includes oral cancer screening as a part of every appointment. Just like other forms of cancer, the earlier oral cancer is detected the better.

During your examination, we’ll ask you about your dental health and any issues that may have recently arisen. We’ll also conduct a visual examination of the inside of your mouth for any possible warning signs of cancer. Typically, the inside of your mouth should appear smooth and coral-pink; an unusual appearance could be a potential warning sign for oral cancer or mouth cancer.

Pathological and visual concerns include
– Difficulty in swallowing
– Chronic hoarseness or sore throat
– Reddish or whitish patches
– A lump or thickening of the lining inside your mouth
– A sore that fails to heal and bleeds easily

If an area looks suspicious, an oral biopsy may be required. A biopsy is the most definitive way to screen for signs of cancer. The process involves surgically taking a small sample of the suspicious tissue and submitting the biopsy to an oral pathologist. The pathologist will then examine the sample at a cellular level and make a diagnosis. We recommend performing this biopsy under local anesthesia.
