Fever Blisters & ulcers

Treat mouth blisters and ulcers with Smiley Dental- A premium dental clinic in Waltham

The mouth, lips, and cheek are made out of soft tissue, which gives our faces the beauty they need, but the soft tissue is also prone to injuries and ulcers. Mouth ulcers often erupt because of many internal health factors or injuries. Mouth Ulcers and blisters can be very painful and also affect the appearance of your lips.

 

Apart from teeth, dentists at Smiley Dental will also take care of mouth ulcers and blisters. When such conditions happen on your face, you need to treat them from the root to make sure that the ulcers do not return. It is best if you come to our dental experts for a consultation if the ulcers do not go away.

Causes of mouth ulcers

There are many causes of mouth ulcers that our dentists at Smiley Dental can tell you about in detail. Understanding the causes of mouth ulcers is important to treat them and avoid their occurrence in the future. Here are some of the most common triggers for mouth ulcers.

  • Injury
    If you have accidentally bitten your lips or your cheek, or there is an injury to the palate, then it is possible that the injured site will develop into a mouth ulcer or come up with painful blisters. These blisters and ulcers can be caused by inflammation at the injury site. If you have dental appliances and dentures installed, the artificial surfaces of these tools can rub against the soft tissue and lead to mouth ulcers.
  • Nutritional deficiencies
    It is also possible that people who suffer from a deficiency of particular vitamins and minerals also suffer from mouth ulcers and blisters. The frequent appearance of ulcers and blisters can be a sign of poor nutrition. If these blisters and ulcers are coupled with fever and inflammation in other parts of your body, then it is possible that your body is screaming for help. The deficiency of Vitamin B and Vitamin C can cause blisters and ulcers in your mouth.
  • Hormonal fluctuations
    When mouth ulcers and blisters arise without any injury, then it means that your internal biochemistry is not balanced. When your hormones are not balanced, and you face a lot of stress every day, health issues might come up, such as ulcers and blisters on your lips and inside the mouth.
