At The Hills Dental Spa in Austin, one of the most common complaints we hear about are 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 Westlake population. Canker sores can be attributed to stress, tissue irritation, or acidic foods.
We can recommend 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. Austin cold sore sufferers should be aware that they can become infected. At The Hills Dental Spa, we advise our patients on how to treat cold sores and avoid further breakouts.
