Don’t Let A Simple Problem Become Serious

In this post from Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Los Altos CA we are going to discuss those 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 connected to broken teeth or braces. Any inflammation of the membranes in the mouth can be classified as stomatitis. Stomatitis can influence your ability to speak, eat, and even to fall asleep at night.

The good news is that most of these irritations 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 us know about these sores if they don’t clear up after several weeks. Even if there are no complications, we can help you treat the symptoms of stomatitis.

At Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Los Altos CA, one of our main objectives is helping patients maintain good dental health. Patients from Daly City, Milpitas, and Saratoga come to us for general and restorative dentistry. Contact us today!
