Oral traumatic lesions are diverse in which some present as acute lesions while the majority are chronic lesions. Clinical presentation of traumatic lesions vary significantly and most of the occasions the cause and the effect can be established with thorough history and clinical examination. Although, biopsy of such lesions are not required in most of the occasions some may warrant histological investigations to exclude conditions which clinically mimic traumatic lesions.
