Self-Study CE Course:
Oral Ulcerations 

Oral ulcerations are relatively common lesions that can have a wide range of etiologies, from traumatic to infectious to autoimmune to idiopathic. The management of oral ulcerations varies accordingly with the cause of the ulceration. Consequently, accurate diagnosis of oral ulcerations is paramount in ensuring the correct treatment, recommendations, and follow-up are provided for affected patients. The dental clinician should be familiar with the following diseases and conditions that may present with mucosal ulceration.
