hi everyone, today I face a case in my clinic,wd complain if pain and burning sensation at the left dorsam region of the tongue.



Agree with Dr. Modi and Dr.Parkar. The cause may be carious or sharp 36 that caused traumatic ulcer but the size and duration of this lesion will decide further t/t plans. As for now, Remove sharp edge/tooth if any, prescribe multivitamins and locally applied gels. If it doesn't subside, plan biopsy to rule out malignancy.

thanks ma'am. duration will not only help in Rx but also help in diagnosis too

it may be due to traumatic bite ...go for coronoplasty....if the cause is not traumatic then proper medical history....Rx manage it with topical application of dentogel, when pain occurs, and burning sensation can be managed by Swiss n swallow of banadryl dry cough prior to eating...this will make patient comfortable...and rule out any allergic history also

I go with my Dentistry friends

It is traumatic ulcer of the tongue due to sharpened edges of the teeth.First remove or grinding o the teeth to reduce the sharpness.Then start applying Quadragel ointment locally and short course of antibiotic like cefixime+ofloxacin for 5 days.
