Oral mucosal disease

Typically many patients in their life time may experience pain or a change involving the skin of their mouth (we call the oral mucosa). Oral Medicine is a specialty of dentistry that is trained to both diagnose and in most cases, manage the oral health problem.

The specialty of Oral Medicine enables when appropriate, the integration of other medical or dental specialties to best treat the oral problem.

One common condition is Oral Lichen Planus. The paper was written by Assoc. Stubbs and contains information regarding both the diagnosis and how the condition is managed.

A referral is required from your dentist or doctor to see Assoc. Stubbs
