PMID:  18557505     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Deliberate self-mutilation, although practised in certain parts of the world, is relatively rare in western cultures. Although uncommon, Altom and DiAngelis believe oral self-mutilation is probably more widespread than is recognized. Self-mutilation of the oral soft and hard tissues can include gingival, mucosal and periodontal damage, glossectomy, auto extraction and the insertion of foreign bodies.
