A healthy oral cavity is a replication of good health. Untoward changes noticed in the oral cavity should be evaluated and confirmed to render a definitive diagnosis. Biopsy remains the gold standard to render a conclusive diagnosis in adjunct with clinical diagnosis. Biopsy helps us to assess the histological characteristic pattern of different suspected lesions with its differentiation and extent or spread depending on the type of biopsy performed. Further, a definitive diagnosis will help in early treatment planning and a better prognosis, all of which is the need of the hour. The different types of biopsies are indicated for different disease process depending on its site, location, extent, accessibility, nature and the armamentarium available. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages.
