Learn the complexities of Oral Lichen Planus with our detailed course, designed to enlighten dental teams about this chronic, immune-mediated condition.
Oral Lichen Planus is a prevalent oral mucosal disease, notable for its lack of a cure and its common occurrence in the middle-aged population, with a general prevalence of about 1.5%. Rare in children, this condition presents unique challenges in dental care.
We explore the potential causes, focusing on how to accurately diagnose the condition. A key part of this module is understanding the drugs associated with Lichen Planus and how they impact its management and prognosis.
Additionally, we look into the epidemiology of the disease, providing a broader context of its occurrence and relevance in dental practice.
The course equips dental professionals with the knowledge to not only diagnose and confirm the many types of Lichen Planus but also to offer informed advice on managing this chronic condition. By the end of this course, participants will be better prepared to support patients in managing Oral Lichen Planus, enhancing the quality of care provided.
