In this blog post from Vitangeli Dental in Englewood, we are going to talk about stomatitis.
Stomatitis is a general term for something very common: irritations found in the mouth. Stomatitis is frequently caused by cold sores, gum disease, or even from biting the inside of the mouth. Any time the membranes in the mouth become inflamed, they are referred to as stomatitis.
Most people have probably suffered from stomatitis and not considered it a big deal. The good news is that they are usually right, because most of these irritations clear up on their own within a few weeks. While they might affect the ability to speak or eat or fall asleep, they are usually just a temporary inconvenience.
However, there are cases where a bacterial or a viral infection can occur in these areas of inflammation.
Because of this possibility, we should be aware of these issues. Even if there is no infection present, we can always help you treat the symptoms of stomatitis.
