Successful healing, moreover, the recurrence rate of the benign oral lesion after treatment affected by multiple variables. One variable contribution is procedure treatment including secondary treatment after the principal procedure. There are some optional procedures consisting of simple and sophisticated or radical surgery. Several studies showed probability recurrence higher in simple than complex treatment. However, the complex or radical treatment caused severe complications such as deformity and asymmetry of the jaw. In this article, the author presented combination dredging and obturator as an alternative procedure and evaluated their outcome focus to a recurrence rate of oral benign lesions. This study aimed to determine the recurrence rate of oral benign lesions treated with dredging and obturator. This study is a descriptive observational with a retrospective approach. The sample was oral benign lesions patients who had dredging treatment at Ibnu Sina Hospital, Makassar. Twenty cases had dredging, 15 (75%) cases used obturator after dredging I, recurrence occurred in 2 (40%) of these cases, dredging II then was done, and no recurrence occurred afterward. There were 4 (15%) cases that did not use obturator after dredging I. Recurrence occurred in 4 cases, 3 cases then had dredging II and use obturator, no recurrence afterward, while one evidence that did not use obturator after dredging II showed recurrence. Then dredging III and obturator insertion was done in this case, follow up showed no recurrence. Dredging with an obturator can reduce the recurrence rate of oral benign lesions.
