With so many different technologies and medical advancements, you would think something as simple as a mouth sore wouldn’t be a medical issue many people experience in their lifetime. Here at Tammy Perison, DDS Family and Cosmetic Dental Care, we want to help you find the source and then determine the treatment to get rid of your mouth sores.
Many sores go away within a week, but if it sticks around for longer than a couple weeks, visit your dentist or doctor to find which treatment will be best to get rid of it. After figuring out of the many influences relating to what could be the root cause of a sore, and with the help of Dr. Tammy Perison and our professionals, we can get rid of this bothersome sore. The sore could be the result of the types of foods you eat (too hot or acidic), a more concealing factor such as in infection or the result of bad habits (smoking/ using tobacco) or the use of medications, or even abrasion from foreign objects such as dentures, braces, or jagged teeth.
Ointments can usually help relieve discomfort, along with the use of time. They typically need a little time to heal on their own. Avoid eating hot/acidic/spicy foods, and keeping track of what you ingest is a great prevention. By speaking with your doctor about your prescribed medication, you can find out about possible alternative options or solutions if the sores are a result of this. Also, consider getting your vitamin and/or hormone balance checked as well for any imbalances. Your sores may also be a result of these.
