5 Tips For Treating Mouth Sores

Prevent Mouth Sores Carmel

Mouth sores are distressingly common, and they can be distressingly painful. At Dental Care Today in Fishers, we offer up a list of things you can do to ease discomfort and speed up healing. By following these tips, you too can avoid the discomfort of eating and help to increase the speed of healing.

1. Eat soft or pureed foods. Don’t worry, you won’t have to eat baby food—plenty of adult dishes fit the bill:

cream soups
yogurt
hot cereal
mashed potatoes
puddings

2. Keep your meals bland for a while. I know it’s humdrum, but watch out for overly spicy, tart, salty or acidic foods while you have a mouth sore.

3. Also, keep it cool. Only eat meals served at room temperature or chilled.

4. Use a straw so that whatever you are drinking can avoid the mouth sore altogether.

5. Try to moisten dry foods. You can add sauces, dressings, and gravies to your meals.

We hope these suggestions will help you the next time you suffer from a mouth sore. In the meantime, brush and floss twice a day, and see us at Dental Care Today in Fishers every six months. We offer general and cosmetic dentistry and will help keep your teeth in great shape.
