Wound Healing & Repair: Applications in Daily Practice 

November 17, 2022 

This is a 1.5 hour presentation that will use the foundational concepts of wound healing and repair in discussing oral pathological lesions encountered in daily practice. The seminar will use concepts underlying wound repair mechanisms and enable participants to apply this knowledge in their understanding/ management of conditions like traumatic ulcers, aphthous ulcers, apical periodontitis, gingival hyperplasias, and other orofacial conditions. 

Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this session, when presented with a clinical scenario, attendees will be able to: 

  • Explain concepts underlying wound healing and repair 
  • Apply the foundational concepts of wound healing and repair in the diagnosis and management of common oral pathological lesions – traumatic ulcers, aphthous ulcers, gingival hyperplasias, mucoceles, apical periodontitis, and osteomyelitis
