There are many different reasons that a sore can appear inside the mouth, cheeks, or on the tongue. It could be minor like a cut from a sharp cracker or a burn such as eating a very hot food that burns the roof of the mouth. However, there’s the chance that it’s something more serious, like a cancer sore or a herpes lesion.
To help alleviate the discomfort, you can use an over-the-counter cream or salve that are made specifically for mouth irritations and apply as directed. If the situation doesn’t improve after a couple of days, contact the highly-trained staff at Dental Care Marlboro. We have stronger medicines that can be used, as well as lasers to treat the lesion.
If you’re suffering from mouth sores, seek out a professional opinion from our Marlboro, New Jersey office at (732) 490-8101. We can be reached 24 hours a day in a dental emergency and are here to help you with all your dental needs.
