What are Some Common Causes of Recurring Mouth Sores?

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.
