If there’s an issue with the soft tissue in your mouth, it can be painful or difficult to eat, speak and brush your teeth. Luckily, minor injuries, like biting down too hard on your cheek, and minor conditions, like canker sores, typically resolve on their own. However, if the problem doesn’t go away or seems to be getting worse, see your dentist. The team at Red Bank Smiles can help alleviate discomfort and recommend treatment options that may be able to help.
Some examples of soft tissue problems include:
- Canker sores
- Cracked mouth corners
- Mouth rash
- And more…
Some soft tissue lesions, especially recurrent lesions, can be indicative of an underlying condition, such as Behcet’s Disease, certain autoimmune disorders, oral cancer or periodontal disease. No matter the cause, we encourage you to come in for a soft tissue exam so you can get the relief you deserve.
