Many people experience mouth sores from time to time. Some sores make it
difficult to perform normal activities like chewing, while others cause
little discomfort. When your dentist performs your regular checkup and
dental cleaning, he or she will also examine your mouth for sores that
could indicate a dental or physiological problem. If you have a mouth
sore that lasts for more than a week, or comes back repeatedly, make an
appointment with your dentist to get to the root of the problem.
Some mouth sores are caused by abrasion to the tongue or gums. Orthodontic
equipment, an improperly fitted denture, a broken filling, or a jagged
tooth edge can all irritate the surrounding tissue, resulting in a recurring
mouth sore. Other mouth sores are indicators of an infection resulting
from bacteria, viruses, or fungus. Certain diseases such as Crohn’s
disease and Behcet’s syndrome can also cause mouth sores.
See our dentists at Oak Creek Dental Care for regular checkups and
dental cleanings in Columbus, Ohio. If you are experiencing recurring mouth sores, your
dentist will advise you on the best method of treatment. Call Oak Creek
Dental Care at (614) 882-5525 to schedule an appointment or consultation today.
