Diseases of the oral mucosa
The sensitive oral mucosa covers the entire oral cavity and the tongue. The areas that are heavily stressed during chewing are also covered by a keratinised mucous membrane. A healthy oral mucosa always looks fresh, clear and pink. If the tissue proliferates, shows opacities, coatings, defects or staining, these can be indications of a pathological change. These can be benign, such as inflammations caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi or mechanical or chemical effects (e.g. dentures). However, they can also become chronic or malignant. Diseases of the oral mucosa can be extremely stressful and often massively restrict the quality of life. Especially if these are chronic or there is a risk of malignant change (lichen, leukoplakia), it is important to plan the therapy for the long term and to keep having regular check-ups.
