What is a Hard or Soft Tissue Biopsy?
A patient’s general dentist may recommend a biopsy for the assessment of any unexplained oral mucosal abnormality that persists despite treatment or the removal of any local irritants. Lesions that interfere with function and those that have an undesirable effect on esthetics should be removed or biopsied. Dr. Flynn will determine if a biopsy is indicated. Often times a biopsy is the only way to accurately diagnose oral lesions and diseases.
Dr. Flynn utilizes laser technology and microsurgical techniques, which enable him to perform the least invasive biopsy possible and make his patients feel comfortable during and after this procedure. At Innovative Periodontics and Implants we help our patients relax and make them feel comfortable during this procedure!
