At Park City Dental in Red Deer, Alberta, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive care for all your dental needs, including the diagnosis and treatment of mouth sores. Mouth sores can be painful and affect your ability to eat, speak, and enjoy daily activities.

Common Types of Mouth Sores

Mouth sores can appear for various reasons and in different forms. The most common types include:

  • Canker Sores: Small, non-contagious ulcers that typically appear inside the mouth on the cheeks, lips, or tongue.
  • Cold Sores:  Fluid-filled blisters caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV), often found around the lips but sometimes inside the mouth
  • Leukoplakia: Thick white patches inside the mouth that can result from chronic irritation.
  • Oral Thrush: A yeast infection caused by Candida fungus leading to creamy white lesions.
Causes of Mouth Sores

Several factors can contribute to the development of mouth sores:

  1. Injury or Trauma: Biting your cheek or tongue, rough dental work, or ill-fitting dentures.
  2. Nutritional Deficiencies: Lack of essential vitamins such as B12, folic acid, iron, or zinc
  3. Infections: Bacterial, viral (including HSV), or fungal infections.
  4. Medical Conditions:  Issues like celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, or weakened immune systems.
  5. Lifestyle Factors: Stress, lack of sleep, poor diet choices (such as acidic foods), and tobacco use.
Creating Positive Dental Experiences

Mouth sores vary in appearance and discomfort depending on their type:

  • Painful ulcers inside cheeks or under the tongue
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Burning sensation before sore appears
  • Fever (in cases with viral infections)

If left untreated properly—or if recurrent—they might signal underlying health conditions needing further medical assessment.

Preventing Future Occurrences

Prevention is paramount! We emphasize maintaining:

  • Good oral hygiene practices
  • Healthy balanced dietary habits
  • Reducing stress through relaxation techniques

Dr. K and his staff are great! My whole family goes to them since we moved to Red Deer about 4 years ago. They have been great with the kids, helpful and friendly, they don't push for unnecessary expenses, they're accommodating and flexible with what we need. My last visit with their new hygienists was great, as she was very knowledgeable, was thorough and gave me advice. Highly recommended!

I’m thrilled to give Dr.K and his team a well-deserved five-star rating! My whole family sees him, and each visit reinforces why we keep coming back. Not only is Dr.K a caring and funny individual, but his assistants and the front desk staff are also amazing and incredibly helpful. They make scheduling appointments a breeze and go above and beyond to ensure our comfort and satisfaction. It’s rare to find such a perfect blend of professionalism and warmth in a dental practice.
