One of the most important parts of our jobs as dental professionals is to look for potentially dangerous conditions in the mouth. Looking for oral pathology is challenging as there are a wide range of normal appearance of tissues in the oral cavity. Being able to differentiate normal from possibly abnormal conditions is very important.
In addition to reviewing various pathologies that can be observed visually by routine oral inspection, this course will also review oral pathologies that are best detected on radiographic inspection.
This course will review important oral pathology conditions such as:
- Amalgam tattoo
- Epulis Fissuratum
- Inflammatory Papillary Hyperplasia
- Geographic Tongue

- Smokeless Tobacco Pouch Keratosis
- Lichen Planus
- Oral Melanotic Macule
- Buccal Exostoses
- Dentigerous Cyst
- Incisive Canal Cyst
- Lateral Periodontal Cyst
- Central Giant Cell Granuloma
- Periapical Cemento-Osseous Dysplasia
The course will discuss how to properly refer patients to oral medicine specialist when potential oral pathology problems are observed.
After completing this course, the clinician will be able to:
- Be able to differentiate lichen planus, smokeless tobacco pouch and leukoplakia and how to treat each condition.
- Be able to recognize cemento-osseous dsyplasia and when to treat.
- Differentiate cysts found in the mandible such as ameloblastoma and dentigerous cyst.
