Dr. Kolozenski 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 oral functioning and those that have an undesirable effect on aesthetics should be removed or biopsied. Dr. Kolozenski will determine if a need for a biopsy is indicated. All tissue samples are sent to a oral pathologist. Often times a biopsy is the only way to accurately diagnose oral lesions and diseases.
