Addressing abnormalities in your mouth’s tissues promptly is vital for maintaining optimal oral health. Oral biopsies play a crucial role in this process, helping to accurately identify the nature of these abnormalities. Dr. Austin Burnett is dedicated to ensuring that your experience is as comfortable and precise as possible, providing expert care throughout the biopsy process.

What are Oral Biopsies?

Oral biopsies involve the careful removal of tissue samples from affected areas in your mouth. These samples are then sent to a laboratory for thorough analysis. The procedure aims to determine whether the tissue is benign, precancerous or cancerous. Utilizing the latest techniques and equipment, Dr. Burnett and our team ensure that the biopsy is conducted with utmost precision and care, minimizing any discomfort.
