Oral Pathology in Pediatric Patients
Oral pathologic lesions can present in varying degrees and forms in children. Accurate identification is important since it will aid in management and treatment planning of such lesions and prevent possible complications. In some cases early identification and treatment may limit progression of the condition and systemic involvement.
