What is an Oral Biopsy?

Oral Biopsy is a surgical procedure to obtain tissue from the patient’s oral cavity, for microscopic examination, usually to perform a diagnosis.

Purpose of an Oral Biopsy

An Oral Biopsy can be performed for several reasons. Sometimes:

  • there are inflammatory changes in the oral cavity of unknown cause that persist for long periods;
  • an oral lesion interferes with proper oral function;
  • for bone lesions that are not specifically identified by clinical examination and X-rays, or any oral lesion that has the characteristics of a malignancy.
