Small Dental Annoyance Or Serious Problem?

Posted on January 2, 2015

mouth sores Tarpon Springs

Today in the Palm Harbor dental blog we are going to talk about stomatitis. Stomatitis is dental-speak for something very common: non-specific irritations found in the mouth. Stomatitis is frequently 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 Tarpon Springs, East Lake, and Clearwater dental patients have probably suffered from stomatitis and don’t think it’s 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 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, your Trinity area dentist should be aware of these issues. Even if you are fortunate and there is no infection present, your dentist can always help you treat the symptoms of stomatitis.

Here in our Palm Harbor office, the friendly team at Prestige Dentistry provides the highest quality preventative, restorative and cosmetic dentistry for our Palm Harbor area patients. If you have any questions about dental implants, sedation dentistry or  smile makeovers, give us a call at 727-478-0488. Common cosmetic dentistry procedures used in smile makeovers include teeth whitening, gum contouring, veneers, bonding, and dental implants.
