Occasionally lesions can grow in places where they are not supposed to. You may not notice anything in your mouth but your dentist may notice an area that looks suspicious when examining your mouth. At GTA Periodontics we offer a biopsy service to partially or completely remove a suspicious area and have it diagnosed by a Specialist in Oral Medicine and Pathology. Most biopsy’s come back as negative, however more serious lesions can be found and is better when caught and treated early.
A typical biopsy does not take long and usually heals uneventfully in a short period of time.
