If there’s anything suspicious, we’ll schedule a follow-up in a few weeks to see if the abnormal tissue is still present. We’ll also see if the area has expanded or changed in any way.
We may also suggest a biopsy, which is the removal of a sample of cells in the affected area, to send to a lab to determine whether the abnormality is cancerous.
Trust us, it’s easy — and with oral cancer cases on the rise, it’s a smart thing to add to your routine preventative dental care. After all, you’re not just a pretty smile!
