Abstract: Biopsy is a necessary diagnostic tool to confirm the clinical diagnosis and to make diagnosis itself based on microscopy. For microscopic examination it is necessary to provide a representative sample of the lesion to interpret proper histopathological diagnosis. Present article is an attempt to update the various biopsy techniques in various oral disorders. We also emphasized on the need of careful handling of the specimens to avoid any artefacts in histological sections in order to obtain an accurate diagnosis.
