Overview

Surgery is not the treatment of choice in most cases of stomatitis. Most cases resolve with removal of the inciting event (e.g., cigarette smoking or denture fixation) or oral hygienic measures. Medical therapy is used for the infectious causes or in cases that cause severe pain. Surgery is not indicated unless there is a suspicion of an oral tumor or a biopsy is required for the diagnosis of the exact type of stomatitis.

Surgery

Noma or Gangrenous stomatitis

Surgery may be required in cases of Noma under the following conditions:[1]

  • Removal of the teeth that are loose
  • Surgery for cosmetic reasons

Trench mouth
