What is biopsy?
Biopsy is a simple and painless procedure where the dentist takes a sample of the unusual tissue or lesion in the oral cavity using a biopsy needle. The sample is then examined by a pathologist to determine if it is cancer, an infection, or something else. If necessary, our dentists will refer you to a specialist for further treatment.
Why is biopsy important?
Biopsy is important because it can contribute to early diagnosis and treatment of serious conditions such as cancer or inflammation in the oral cavity. The earlier a condition is detected, the greater the chance of complete recovery. Biopsy can also help to confirm a diagnosis and plan the right treatment.
How to prepare for a biopsy?
Before the biopsy, our dentists will perform a complete examination of your mouth and take the necessary X-rays. They will also give you specific instructions on how to prepare for the procedure. This may include fasting for a few hours before the procedure or stopping certain medications. Be sure to follow your dentist's instructions carefully to ensure the best possible results.
What can you expect during the biopsy procedure?
Biopsy is usually a quick and painless procedure. Before the procedure, the dentist will give you a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. Next, they will take a small sample of the unusual tissue or lesion using a biopsy needle. The procedure usually takes a few minutes to complete.
- Børst tennene riktig: Børst tennene grundig to ganger om dagen i minst to minutter hver gang. Bruk en fluorholdig tannkrem for å styrke tannemaljen.
