The skin inside your mouth is very tender, making it vulnerable to cuts and sores that can cause you varying levels of discomfort. You could have cut your mouth on the sharp edge of something you’ve eaten, or maybe you burned the roof of your mouth on a hot beverage. However, there is the possibility that it’s something more serious, like a cancer sore or a herpes lesion.
Pharmacies offer a variety of over-the-counter creams and salves that are made specifically for mouth sores and irritations and can help alleviate some of your discomfort. Use them as directed, but if your situation doesn’t improve after a couple of days, call Dental Care East Hanover, because it could be something more serious.
If you’re suffering from mouth sores, seek out a professional opinion from our East Hanover, New Jersey office at (973) 975-0309. We can be reached 24 hours a day in a dental emergency and are here to help you with all your dental needs.
