Description: Ulcers in the oral cavity are relatively common. These disorders along with red lesions can be placed on a spectrum ranging from a simple traumatic change to a frank malignant life threatening lesion. Dentists are involved with such lesions in their daily practice and should be able to approach them correctly. Diagnosing and managing these disorders are challenging, but very critical, as detection of a premalignant lesion should be considered a lifesaving diagnosis in dentistry. This lecture will review major features of these lesions and provide a road map for clinicians on how to make a differential diagnosis and how to manage such disorders based on their pathognomonic clinical character.
Learning objectives: Upon completion, participants will be able to:
1- Identify the key elements to differentiate between malignant and non-malignant ulcers and red lesions.
2- Recognize the main points in diagnosing such lesions and evaluate them based on reliable diagnostic criteria.
3- Choose and conduct a strategy for managing this group of disorders.
