Syracuse Canker Sores Specialist
Canker sores are small, round, ulcerated sores that appear, often two or three at a time, on the inside of lips and cheeks and on tongues, palates, and gums. Although their cause is unknown, they often occur after tissue abrasions from braces or ill fitting dentures, tissue injuries such as bitten cheeks or lips, and ingestion of citric fruits. They generally disappear without scars after two weeks but often return a few times each year. They are not contagious and afflict only half of all people for whom they are merely a painful annoyance and do not require professional attention.
In some instances, however, canker sores pose greater risk and professional assistance is necessary. You should promptly see TLC Dental Group, a Syracuse specialist in canker sores, if
- You experience canker sores for the first time
- Your canker sores are large (almost one half inch in diameter), extremely painful, and scarring
- Your afflictions become more frequent
- Your canker sores become more numerous
- Your canker sores last longer than two weeks
- Rashes, joint pain, fever, or diarrhea accompany your canker sores
We will carefully examine your canker sores and may provide you with prescription gels and/or creams that will mitigate their pain, deter their growth, and accelerate their healing.
