Ouch! The mouth is a bad place for injuries, sores, or inflammation. It seems that even the smallest irritation in the mouth can cause serious discomfort for dental patients.
These non-specific irritations in the mouth have a name. They are called stomatitis.
A good 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.
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.
However, your dentist will determine if it is caused by a viral or bacterial infection and advise you on treatment. the symptoms of stomatitis with pain relievers and at-home remedies such as salt water rinses.
