GUM DISEASE

I have just returned from my dentist and we have been watching an area on the roof of my mouth for the past 4 months. My doctor said that it is a growth of bone that some people have not only on the top but also on the bottom. The problem is that the tissue that covers it is very white and has been so for awhile now. My dentist suggested that I go to an oral surgeon for a biopsy. I am hesitant to do this. What do you think?

I think that you should go to the oral surgeon and have a biopsy performed. If it comes out negative everyone has peace of mind. If it is positive you have probably caught it early, in which case the chance of cure is better. Best of luck to you!
