What's normal and what's not?
Children can present to the dental clinic with a wide variety of soft tissue presentations with both local and systemic aetiologies. For those of us who treat children in our everyday practice, it is important to be familiar with the pathologies that you may see. In this presentation, we will go through some of these presentations, including viral illness (e.g. herpetic gingivistomatitis, hand foot and mouth) and many other types of lesions that are common in children.
