More Info:

Aphthous stomatitis (also termed canker sores, recurrent aphthous stomatitis, RAS, recurring oral aphthae and recurrent aphthous ulceration) is a common cause of benign and non-contagious mouth ulcers, (also called canker sores or aphthae). This condition is characterized by the repeated formation of ulcers in the mouth, in otherwise healthy individuals. These ulcers occur periodically and heal completely between attacks. Symptoms range from a minor nuisance to interfering with eating and drinking.

The cause is not completely understood, but the condition involves a T cell-mediated immune response which is triggered by a variety of factors. Individuals vary in their observed triggers, which may include nutritional deficiencies, local trauma, stress, hormonal influences, allergies, a genetic predisposition and other factors. The condition is very common, affecting about 20% of the general population to some degree. There is no cure, and treatments are aimed at reducing pain and speeding the healing process. Often, the onset of the condition is during childhood or adolescence and it usually lasts for several years before gradually disappearing, with or without any form of treatment.


Oral pathology

Oral and maxillofacial pathology (also termed oral pathology, stomatognathic disease, or mouth disease) refers to the diseases of the mouth ("stoma") and jaw ("gnath"). It is the term used by MeSH (along with the synonym dental diseases), but other organizations use different terms. The World Health Organization uses the term "Diseases of oral cavity, salivary glands and jaws." The mouth is an important organ with many different functions. It is also prone to a variety of medical and dental disorders.

The specialty oral and maxillofacial pathology is concerned with diagnosis and study of the causes and effects of diseases affecting the oral and maxillofacial regions. It is sometimes considered to be a specialty of dentistry and pathology. Sometimes the term head and neck pathology is used instead, but this might imply that the pathologist deals with otorhinolaryngologic disorders (i.e. ear, nose and throat) in addition to maxillofacial disorders. In this role there is some overlap between the expertise of head and neck pathologists and that of endocrine pathologists.
