The mouth is a bad place for injuries, sores, or inflammation. Even the smallest irritation in the mouth can cause serious discomfort. If you’ve got a mouth irritation, be sure to let us know at Vitangeli Dental in Englewood.
Non-specific irritations in the mouth have a name. They are called stomatitis.
A general definition for stomatitis is the inflammation of the membranes in the mouth. These usually affect a person’s ability to speak, eat, and even get to sleep at night. If you suffer from mouth sores, you know that stomatitis can really impact your life!
Some common causes of stomatitis can be canker sores, cold sores, gum disease, biting the inside of your mouth or your tongue, burning your mouth, and irritation caused by braces or broken teeth. Many sores in the mouth will generally clear up on their own in less than two weeks.
