Abstract

Background: The oral mucosa protects the mouth from trauma, pathogens, and carcinogenic agents. It can be affected by a wide range of conditions, some of which are harmless while others cause complications. Identification and treatment of these lesions are critical components of overall oral health care.

Aim: The present study was conducted to evaluate the prevalence of oral mucosal lesions among East Godavari sample population.

Materials and Methods: A clinical descriptive proforma based study was conducted among the patients visiting the Department of Oral Medicine and Radiology, East Godavari, Andhra Pradesh, India for a period of two years. Intra oral examination of the soft tissues was carried out for the presence of oral mucosal alterations. The obtained findings were tabulated and performed statistical analysis using SPSS software version 23.

Results: Among 37,744 subjects participated in the study, OML were observed in 14.6% subjects. The most common lesions were linea alba 1922 (5%) followed by physiological pigmentation 1098 (2%), smoker’s melanosis 586 (1.5%), smokers palate 330 (0.8%), frictional keratosis 304 (0.8%), oral submucous fibrosis (0.1%), leukoplakia 272 (0.7%), traumatic fibroma 76 (0.2%), lichen planus 38 (0.1%) & miscellaneous 180 (0.4%).

Conclusion: The increased frequency of oral mucosal changes is associated with increased age, habits and medical history of the subjects. Periodic examinations and evaluation of mucosal lesions aid in demographic and geographic distribution.
