Stomatitis is a big word for something very common: non-specific irritations found in the mouth. General dentistry as practiced by the Parkway Dentist in Fort Worth can help.
Stomatitis is an umbrella term that includes cold sores, canker sores, and mouth irritations. Any time the membranes in the mouth become inflamed, they are referred to as stomatitis.
Most people have probably suffered from stomatitis and don’t think it’s a big deal. The good news is that these patients are usually right, because most cases clear up on their own in less than two weeks. While they might affect the ability to speak or eat or fall asleep, they are usually just a temporary inconvenience.
However, there are cases where a bacterial or a viral infection can occur in these areas of inflammation.
Because of this possibility, you should let your dentist know if you suspect stomatitis. Even if\ there is no infection present, your dentist can help you treat the symptoms.
