Fibrosis and Dentistry

Welcome to our comprehensive course on Fibrosis, designed for dental professionals seeking an in-depth understanding of this significant condition in dentistry.

Fibrosis, characterised by the thickening and scarring of connective tissue, can have profound implications for oral health, which this course extensively covers.

The course starts with an overview of fibrosis, focusing on its pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management in dental practice. We look into the diagnosis and management of various fibrotic conditions within the oral cavity, such as oral submucous fibrosis and gingival fibromatosis. Emphasis is placed on recognising these conditions early and managing them effectively.

The course also looks at the broader implications of fibrosis in dentistry, including its role in dental pulp fibrosis, and finishes with a broad look at the systemic forms of fibrosis.
