What are soft tissue lesions?
Mouth ulcers or soft tissue lesions of the oral cavity come in all shapes and sizes. It is important to distinguish between findings that are normal, such as occasional mouth ulcers in children, and more serious findings that could indicate gum disease, mouth sores, or infection. Some lesions can even be indicative of potentially fatal systemic conditions such as cancer. As such, early evaluation of soft tissue lesions is critical.
There are different types of oral lesions, including the below list. A dentist can help you to identify and treat these well known issues.
Your approach to suspicious lumps and bumps is important, and could save your life. Regular check-ups, and a good sense of your oral health, in tandem with a comprehensive oral hygiene routine can reduce the risk of serious oral disease.
