Wendy AuClair-Thank you for your advice and your highly concern of my question. I am clear now.

Island Mak - You're right; with a small lesion, an excisional biopsy would be ideal. Many of the lesions we see are on the posterior tongue or on the soft palate. These can be challenging areas for a general dentist (or a prostho like me) to be access, and may be better referred to an oral surgeon or ENT to biopsy.

Island Mak - (8/13/2012 12:30 PM)

It is a very nice lecture. However,I'm recently studying a book. I am doubt on that we should do the incisional biopsy when we suspect the lesion is malignant. Please let me know why we cannot do the excisional biopsy although it is a small lesion but we suspect it as a malignant tumor.

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century Premium Member Content

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century
Non-surgical periodontal therapy is a vital part of everyday dental practice. Since the majority of periodontal therapy is performed by general dentists and dental hygienists, it is critical that clinicians have all of the requisite skills and information needed to perform these services at the highest level possible. The purpose of this presentation is to provide the latest evidence- and practice- based information on periodontal debridement and adjunctive therapies that can improve patient outcomes. Though surgical procedures may still need to be performed in some sites, the majority of inflammatory periodontal disease can be eliminated or reduced significantly using the techniques and protocols discussed in this educational segment on non-surgical periodontal therapy.

This investigation was conducted on seven individuals referred for treatment of moderate adult periodontitis. Twenty-eight sites with an average probing depth of 5.6 ± 0.9 mm were evaluated. One tooth per jaw quadrant was randomly assigned to receive one of the following treatments: (I) no treatment, i.e., control; (II) saline irrigation; (III) tetracycline irrigation and (IV) scaling and root planing (SC/RP). A plaque control program was instituted one week prior to the experimental period and reinforced…

Bacterial Penetration of Gingiva in the Adult Beagle Dog with Periodontitis
Invasion of gingival tissues by bacteria is thought to be a major factor in development of periodontal lesions. Morphologic studies have revealed bacteria within the pocket epithelium, gingival connective tissues, alveolar bone, and oral epithelium. The current studies are intended to determine whether they are present in healthy and diseased tissues and to identify the microbial source. Five beagle dogs with naturally occurring periodontitis were fed a soft diet. Two quadrants of the dentition…
