Oral tissue injury

It is very common to develop an injury to oral tissue as a result of physical, chemical or thermal trauma in a dental practice during surgery or procedure. The oral tissue injuries can also originate from accidental dental biting, sharp or pointing food stuff, sharp edges of teeth or overzealous tooth brushing. The oral tissue is damaged during oral surgery, prolonged procedures, dental extractions, and gum disease (also known as periodontal disease).
