Pediatric oral pathology. Soft tissue and periodontal conditions.
Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)
Pediatric patients can present with various intraoral lesions that require accurate diagnosis, treatment or reassurance, and possible referral for a dental evaluation. Periodic review of oral soft-tissue pathology can help the medical team to easily recognize common and rare abnormalities affecting children. Recent years have brought new insights into the causes and treatment of periodontal diseases of children, making prevention or treatment of many formerly untreatable conditions possible. Early detection of these oral conditions may be life saving.
