San Francisco Mouths And Stomatitis

Let Your Dentist Near San Francisco Solve Your Mouth Sore Problems

Ouch! The mouth is not a fun place for injuries, sores, or inflammation. It seems that even the smallest irritation in the mouth can cause serious discomfort for Daly City 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. If you suffer from mouth sores, you know that stomatitis can really impact the lives of San Mateo, San Francisco, and Daly City residents.

Some common causes of stomatitis can be canker sores or 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 San Francisco dentist can determine if it is caused by a viral or bacterial infection, and they can also advise you on treating the symptoms of stomatitis with pain relievers and at-home remedies such as salt water rinses.

Hi. I’m Dr. Kenneth Hovden of Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City, and I want my patients to have the best oral health possible. I also want them to look their best, so if you have any questions about smile makeovers, give us a call at 650-755-6000.
