  • You can take second opnion as the palatal swelling can be because of the infection in the #5 -7 tooth May be all of thaes teeth or one of them is infected and some intraoral sinus is formed. But you should not take the chance and get the test done. Basically the biopsy is done to rule out any pathology and if treatment is done in the early stage it s better.
