Anyone have a biopsy done for oral lichen planus?

My dentist is sending me to a peridontist just to confirm his diagnosis. I wasn't at all concerned as I was told he would only 'look at' my gum and cheeks. But now after reading some of these posts about people having biopsies done on theirs, I'm very frightened as I'm pretty sure that's what he'll do to me, too.

Can someone tell me what they do and if it hurts? Do they numb it first? And why do they have to do a biopsy if they know what it is? I'm getting so upset they more I think about it. Any help at all will be greatly appreciated. I'm even thinking about not going at all, I'm so scared.
