Small Dental Annoyance Or Serious Problem?

mouth sores Cinco Ranch

In this Crabtree Chronicles post, we are going to talk about stomatitis. As your Katy dentist explains, stomatitis is the proper term for something very common: non-specific irritations found in the mouth.

Stomatitis is ordinarily caused by cold sores, gum disease, or even from biting the inside of the mouth (ouch!). Any time the membranes in the mouth become inflamed, they are referred to as stomatitis.

Most individuals have probably suffered from stomatitis and not thought it was a big deal. The good news is that these patients are usually right, because the majority of these irritations clear up on their own in less than two weeks. While they might affect the ability to speak or eat or fall asleep, they are commonly 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, the Crabtree Dental team should be aware of these issues. Even if you are fortunate and there is no infection present, we can always help you treat the symptoms of stomatitis.
