ABSTRACT:Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is the most common oral cancer which can present as various types of clinical presentations, accounting for more than 90% of all malignant lesions in the oral cavity. Carcinoma of gingiva makes an important group of oral cancers that extends to alveolus. Etiology of oral cancer includes tobacco, alcohol, chronic irritation of gingiva and progression of oral potentially malignant disorders. Carcinomas involving alveolus can result in bone erosions and appear as “moth-eaten appearance” in the alveolus. Treatment depends upon the stage and extent of the disease.
