Please elaborate c/f wrt 17 16 ,pts medical history and radiographic examination. Looks like ANUG start with amclaid,metrogyl,lycomox,hexigel,CHX mouth wash. After 1 week commence with Oral prophylaxis, extraction wrt 17 depending upon clinical examination (poor prognosis) ,evaluate crown margins wrt 16.Adv biopsy if lesion does not subside 4weeks after incipient treatment.
Any ulcer which dont heal in 3 weeks needs biopsy
Take OPG
