Red, White, and Ulcerative Lesions of the Oral Cavity. What Are They? How To Treat?

This course is designed to guide you through the differential diagnosis, treatment and management of commonly encountered oral soft tissue growths and ulcers. Differentiating oral ulcers based on the clinical presentation, duration and location is imperative for appropriate management. Subjects include the differential diagnoses of white lesions, including leukoplakia and lichen planus, and red lesions, including erythroplakia and geographic tongue. Emphasis on the clinical presentation of oral dysplasias or early cancer will be illustrated. Recognizing HPV infections that affect the oral region, including both low and high-risk HPV types, will be discussed. We’ll review the risk factors for HPV-related cancers, the current HPV vaccines available, and the role of oral health care providers in screening for these cancers. Diagnosis and treatment algorithms of lichen planus and other vesiculo-erosive conditions that can affect the oral mucosa will be presented. Biopsy techniques, including biopsies for direct immunofluorescence, will be reviewed. Differentiating oral ulcers based on clinical presentation, duration and location will be discussed, with special reference to oral herpes and aphthous ulcers. Diagnosis and treatment options for Burning Mouth/Tongue Syndrome will be discussed and tips on separating this entity from other causes of burning, including candidiasis and reactions to topical agents such as cinnamon, mints, and other agents.
