What is a Periodontal Biopsy?

A periodontal biopsy is a diagnostic procedure involving the removal of a small tissue sample from your gums or other oral structures. This sample is then examined under a microscope to identify the nature of a lesion, tumor, or abnormal growth. Biopsies are essential for accurate diagnosis and determining the most appropriate treatment plan for your specific condition.

Benefits of Periodontal Biopsies:

  • Accurate Diagnosis: Biopsies provide precise information about the nature of oral abnormalities, ensuring accurate diagnoses.
  • Tailored Treatment: A correct diagnosis allows for the development of a customized and effective treatment strategy, optimizing your periodontal health.
  • Early Detection: Biopsies aid in the early detection of potentially serious conditions, enabling prompt intervention and better outcomes.

The Periodontal Biopsy Process:

  • Consultation: Dr. Denise C. Gay will thoroughly assess your oral health, discuss your concerns, and recommend a biopsy if necessary.
  • Local Anesthesia: The biopsy site will be numbed using a local anesthetic to ensure a painless procedure.
  • Tissue Removal: A small tissue sample is carefully taken from the affected area using specialized instruments.
  • Pathological Examination: The tissue sample is sent to a pathology laboratory, where experts examine it microscopically to provide a definitive diagnosis.
  • Results and Treatment: Once the results are available, Dr. Gay will discuss the findings with you and develop an appropriate treatment plan tailored to your needs.

Important Considerations:

  • Preparation: Follow any pre-biopsy instructions provided by Dr. Gay to ensure accurate results.
  • Post-Biopsy Care: Gentle oral care after the procedure promotes proper healing and reduces the risk of complications.
  • Patience: It may take a few days to receive the biopsy results. Dr. Gay will communicate the findings and the recommended course of action.
