Five Star Dental Care Treats Cankers Sores, Lesions, and Fever Blisters

Cosmetic Dentistry Riverview FL

At Five Star Dental Care, one of the most common complaints we hear from Riverview FL area cosmetic dentistry patients 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 Riverview FL population. Canker sores can be attributed to stress, tissue irritation, or acidic foods. Dr. Jeff Bynum 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. Riverview FL cold sore sufferers should be aware that they can become infected. At Five Star Dental Care, 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 Riverview FL area emergency 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

Dr. Jeff Bynum reminds patients that eating a well balanced diet, drinking plenty of water, and not smoking can all aid in oral health and hygiene.

To schedule an appointment, or ask about other oral concerns, contact Five Star Dental Care today at 813-653-2273.
