Classification and Management of Oral Traumatic Lesions: A Comprehensive Review

Ivan Nikolaev Dimitrov | Elitsa Peteva Dzhongova [2]

Abstract: The oral mucosa is often traumatized by some physical and chemical factors. The majority of these traumatic injuries clinically present as ulcers or less often as lesions protruding above the adjacent healthy tissues. The most common locations for these lesions are the buccal mucosa, tongue and lips. Due to the variety in disease progression and macroscopic appearance they can be classified according to their etiology, appearance and clinical course. The most common oral traumatic lesions (OTL) present as a structural defect of the soft tissues, demarcated from the surrounding healthy tissue and have a bottom that is covered with damaged surface epithelial cells. OTL should be differentiated with many other diseases with viral, neoplastic or reactive genesis, while the treatment includes a complex of measures, the major of which is removal of the causative factor that led to their occurrence. Traumatic lesions are part of the dental practice due to the essence of the profession, as well as the features of the oral region.
