Wildflower Dental Treats Canker Sores, Lesions, And Fever Blisters

Wildflower Dental Treats Cankers Sores Lesions and Fever Blisters

At Wildflower Dental in Sun City AZ, one of the most common complaints our dentist hears is problems with mouth sores.

There are many different kinds of oral lesions which can make eating and talking painful. Some are annoying yet harmless, while other sores are more serious and require medical intervention.

Though not contagious, the most common complaint is canker sores, which affect an estimated eighty percent of the Peoria population. Canker sores can be attributed to stress, tissue irritation, or acidic foods.

Our dentist can prescribe a topical dental paste to relieve pain and guard against infection. Recurring canker sores can sometimes be a symptom of a larger health problem.

Another common complaint is fever blisters or cold sores, which are contagious fluid-filled blisters. Cold sore sufferers should be aware that they can become infected. At Wildflower Dental, we advise our patients on how to treat cold sores and avoid further breakouts.

Fungal infections and oral cancer can cause sores in the mouth and throat. See your Phoenix dentist if you experience any of the following:

  • Lumps or discolored patches in the mouth lasting longer than three weeks
  • Unusually large lesions
  • Multiple sores

Eating a well balanced diet, drinking plenty of water, and not smoking can all aid in oral health and hygiene.

At Wildflower Dental in Sun City, the dental health of each of our patients is our number one priority, every day. Services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next appointment with us today!
