Oral mucosal disorders are frequently encountered by the practicing dentist. These lesions may represent oral manifestations of dermatologic or systemic disease, reactive lesions, or occult neoplasms. The diagnosis of these conditions is usually based on case-specific historical findings, clinical appearance, and the results of diagnostic procedures. This article will discuss the diagnosis and management of commonly occurring oral mucosal conditions such as candidosis, recurrent aphthous ulceration, herpes virus infection, and lichen planus. This manuscript represents a synthesis of the literature and the management approach utilized by the author in the treatment of his patients. This article is not intended as a comprehensive review of all the subjects discussed.
