Ulcers and sore mouth products to relieve pain and discomfort.
Ulcers are common and usually clear up within a week or 2. They’re rarely a sign of anything serious but they can be very uncomfortable to live with. Unfortunately there is no quick fix but there are products that can make life a little more comfortable while they last.
Any ulcer, red or white patch in your mouth lasting more than 3 weeks should be investigated by a dentist. Whilst rare, it’s always best to get it checked.
While ulcers and sore mouth products help to relieve symptoms, it is really important that the cause is identified. Ulcers and sore gums and soft tissues in the mouth can be caused by a number of things including trauma, diet deficiencies, and gum disease. A sore mouth can have an impact on diet and quality of life so it is important to follow up on such symptoms with your dental/medical team. It is useful to keep a diary of symptoms to discuss with your dental team who will be best placed to advise on treatment and pain relief.
