The course concentrates on various patterns of acute and chronic oral ulcerations and erosions. These lesions are the most common symptomatic mucosal pathoses encountered by oral health practitioners. The discussions are presented in a format that insures easy utilization of the information; and all of those in attendance are encouraged to participate and ask questions related to their previous experiences with these pathologic conditions. During the discussion of each disorder, the clinical features, differential diagnosis, route toward definitive diagnosis, appropriate therapy and prognosis will be presented. High-quality clinical photographs are used extensively to clarify and explain thoroughly each included disease process.
At the conclusion of this presentation, each participant should be able to succeed at the following tasks.
- Appropriately classify symptomatic oral ulcerations and erosions
- Formulate an accurate differential diagnosis of acute and chronic oral ulcerations and erosions
- Arrive at an accurate definitive diagnosis of acute and chronic oral ulcerations and erosions
- Appropriately manage patients with acute and chronic oral ulcerations and erosions
- Understand the long-term outlook for patients affected with a variety of acute and chronic oral ulcerations and erosions.
