Oral Biopsy Woburn

In order to have a thorough understanding of your oral health, it is important to have regular dental appointments twice a year. During these appointments, our Woburn and Winchester dentist will evaluate your teeth, gums, and oral tissue. If our dentist, Ryan M. Clancy, DMD, MAGD, LVIF, discovers an abnormality in your oral tissue that he believes may need further examination, he may perform a biopsy.

Biopsies can be used to diagnose unhealthy tissues in the mouth and can help to rule out significant oral conditions or help our Woburn and Winchester dental surgeon to diagnose possible oral problems. At Divine Smiles, you will benefit from the fact that we have an in-house dental surgeon because you don’t have to go to a different location or dentist for your oral biopsy procedure or oral surgeries.

If you are in need of a biopsy Woburn dentist, Dr. Ryan Clancy, can help you today. Please contact Divine Smiles today to schedule your appointment by calling us at (781) 396-8558.

Types of Biopsies

If our Woburn & Winchester dentist notices an abnormality in your oral tissue during your next hygiene & cleaning appointment, he may request that you get a biopsy in order to rule out serious conditions or to determine if you need treatment. Divine Smiles performs the following types of biopsies:

  • Incisional biopsy: A portion of the abnormal tissue is removed for further testing
  • Excisional biopsy: The entire abnormal portion of tissue is removed for testing, rather than just a portion of it

Any time there is abnormal oral tissue, a biopsy may be the most accurate form of diagnosis in order to determine what procedures, if any, would help correct your oral health.

Oral Biopsy in Woburn

Why Get an Oral Biopsy?

A biopsy may be used to properly diagnose and treat the following:

  • A sore that has been on your gums for longer than two weeks
  • White or red patches on your gums
  • Gum ulcers
  • Gum swelling that does not go down
  • Loose teeth or dentures caused by changes in your gums
  • Black lesions on your tongue, gums, or oral tissue

Oral biopsies can be used to diagnose cancerous tissue and determine if you have any other oral diseases or infections. From the biopsy, our dentist will be able to determine if you need further care, antibiotics, or procedures.

At Divine Smiles, we have the experience you can trust and the compassion you can relate to. Call us today at (781) 396-8558 for service in and around Woburn and Winchester.
