Even the most frequently seen conditions in oral pathology may be diagnostically challenging to clinicians who do not encounter them regularly. This presentation will help in the identification of both common innocuous and the more clinically significant lesions, including the atypical presentations that vary from classic textbook pictures. The demonstration that follows is designed to help general dentists and specialists alike to feel comfortable performing uncomplicated soft tissue biopsies in their offices.
- Learn differential diagnosis of the most commonly encountered oral infections, immune-mediated diseases, and tumors
- Review management strategies, including pharmacologic treatments
- Investigate indications for biopsy and alternative diagnostic procedures
- Compare punch and scalpel biopsy techniques
