Changes in oral mucous membranes can be a sign of oral mucosal disease. A dentist should be consulted.
Lesions of oral mucosa can be caused, for example, by different reactions or infections such as fungal infections, or mycoses. The possibility of oral cancer and its precursors must be ruled out in the case of individual white or red lesions, especially if they are hard or ulcerative. Regular check-ups are a part of the treatment of several oral mucosal lesions. Specialised oral pathologists are experts in non-healing oral mucosal lesions.
The status of the oral mucosa is examined and a diagnosis is made at an appointment. Some mucosal lesions can be treated with medication. Regular check-ups are an important part of the treatment process.
If you have been diagnosed with an oral mucosal lesion that requires treatment. If you suspect that you have an oral mucosal lesion, book an appointment for the assessment of the need for treatment of oral mucosal diseases.
