(1) traumatic ulcer: This is a class with local incentives directly related to the ulcer. Residual crown fractured teeth left, deposited on the surface of the stone teeth, missing teeth grow long or the wrong position, the bad habit of cheek biting, tooth wear, and after the formation of the sharp edge of the rough work of dentures so may lead to traumatic ulceration . For such ulcers, as long as the early detection of Dental Artcles risk factors, such as the timely removal of residual crown and root, change the sharp edge of the grinding, cleaning dental calculus, cheek biting habits to correct. Measures to re-set teeth, etc., will quickly heal. However, if you find too late, inadequate measures, traumatic oral ulcers may be cancerous.

(2)-induced oral mucosal disease: such as summer hair aphthous, herpetic stomatitis, hand, foot and mouth disease, pemphigus and pemphigoid secondary ulcers, these ulcers as long as the timely adoption of anti-bacterial, anti-virus, anti-allergy and other treatment measures, or Chinese medicine syndrome differentiation, are generally not malignant. But in particular should be noted is that for a precancerous lesion of the mucosal disease can not be taken lightly. If the white spots, red spots, on the basis of lichen planus and other damage, prolonged healing of the ulcer appeared, which should be highly vigilant.

(3) caused by the tumor, “malignant ulcer”: This is a malignant ulcers result of the development of local infiltration in the ulcer may have occurred before the onset of systemic manifestations of malignant tumors.

Superficial ulcer is found, the surface smooth, the edge is not higher than normal mucosa, the color red (as fresh as the first color fan), were round or oval, and multiple ulcers, the possibility of large benign. Conversely, if the ulcer is deep depression the bottom, uneven surface, the edge of uplift, dark red (like raw liver as color), irregular, and a single large ulcer, they have to guard against the possibility of malignancy.

(3) touch the texture of ulcers, pain: Wash hands, fingers gently touch the ulcer and the surrounding area, compare, ulcer and surrounding tissue have hardness differences, especially if the bottom induration ulcer.
