Abstract

Oral ulceration is a common presentation in a dental clinic. These ulcers may be acute or chronic, based on the duration of symptoms. The etiology of oral ulceration can range from trauma to squamous cell carcinoma. It is the responsibility of the dentist to differentiate the various etiologies of oral ulceration for proper management. This case report is presented to remind dentists that the long-term use of Nicorette gum should be considered in the differential diagnosis of chronic oral ulcers.
