In this blog post from The Carrollton Dentist we are going to discuss small irritations in the mouth that have the potential to become big problems.
Injuries, sores, or inflammation in the mouth can be very uncomfortable. These non-specific irritations, called stomatitis, have many different causes.
They may be caused by cold sores, gum disease, teeth grinding, or biting the inside of your mouth. They may also be linked to broken teeth or braces.
In fact, any inflammation of the membranes in the mouth can be classified as stomatitis. Stomatitis can affect a person’s ability to speak, eat, and even to fall asleep at night.
In most cases, they clear up on their own in less than two weeks. However, there is a possibility that a viral or bacterial infection can occur. It’s important to let your dentist know about these sores if they don’t clear up after several weeks. Even if there are no complications, your dentist can help you treat the symptoms of stomatitis.
