Stomatitis is a general term for an irritated and sore mouth and this affection can disturb a person's capability to talk, to eat and also sleep. Stomatitis can appear anywhere in the mouth, including the inside of the cheeks, tongue, lips, gums and palate. If you observe any of these signs, you should see our dentists in Dubai for a check-up and a proper treatment plan.
Types of stomatitis
Canker sores are small white or yellow center injuries with a red edge. They grow in the mouth on the tongue, inside cheek zones, gum line, lips and throat area and they are not transmissible. Cold sores look like clusters of red, raised eruptions outside the mouth, usually around the lips and they can develop under the chin or under the nose. Unfortunately, they are extremely contagious. Tooth abscess appears when there is a bacterial infection in the nerve of the tooth. Symptoms of a tooth abscess contain serious toothache with pain, fever and swollen lymph bumps, sensitivity to hot and cold drinks or food.
Stomatitis treatments in Dubai
The dentists in Dubai will do some examinations for blood maladies, connective soft tissue diseases, drug reactions and skin conditions. Sometimes a biopsy is necessary to make sure the mouth sore is not a different disease. In this kind of operation, the area is sedated and a small part of soft tissue is detached and examined in a laboratory. The stomatitis can be cured and the treatment will make you feel better until the sores heal, but this doesn’t mean you won’t develop canker sores again.
Our dentist in Dubai recommends to his patients a few tips to reduce discomfort, such as:
• using the pain-relieving creams or gels on the sores;
• eating plain foods;
• washing with warm water.
Patients with larger or extremely painful stomatitis may need steroid drugs like gels or creams that are placed on the sores, in order to make them heal faster and stop from growing. For the most serious situations, our dentists in Dubai will recommend a treatment based on injected steroids.
Don’t hesitate to contact our dental clinic in Dubai for any other questions or information regarding stomatitis treatments.
