They are also synthesized artificially in laboratories. Corticosteroids commonly hydrocortisone, dexamethasone, methylprednisolone and prednisolone have wide range of uses in dentistry owing to their excellent anti-inflammatory and immuno-modulatory effects. As steroids are immunosuppressive in nature, they should be used cautiously after emphasizing on their risks and benefits. This paper discusses the pharmacology of steroids and their uses in treatment of oral diseases/disorders like oral lichen planus, apthousulcers, pemphigus, pemphigoid, erythema multiforme, mucocele, temporomandibular disorders etc.
