At Green Valley Kids, we are dedicated to ensuring that your child remains healthy. For this reason, our caring and gentle dentist analyzes your child’s oral health for any pathological conditions or tissue abnormalities. Furthermore, if Dr. Chris Roberts detects any growths or irregularities in your child’s mouth, your concerns and questions will be addressed before any treatments begin. Our recommendations are made with your child’s wellness in mind and we can assure you they will receive the best care possible for their dental needs.
An oral pathology and biopsy in Denver, Colorado, includes the diagnosis and removal of a growth or abnormality. Our dentist provides anesthetic when a sample of tissue is taken, and your child may feel numb for several hours after their procedure. Your child should also avoid brushing the surgical site until soreness is gone. We send the sample collected in the biopsy to a lab for analysis, which can be used to diagnose:
- Ulcers, sores, or lesions in your child’s gum or oral tissue
- White or red patches or lumps of tissue
- Chronic swelling of your child’s gums
- Any other abnormalities
You will be contacted when the sample results are returned to us and then you can see us at Green Valley Kids to discuss treatment options with our dentist. If you have any questions, we invite you to call us at 303-371-4485.
