Should You Be Concerned About a Sore Roof of Your Mouth?

This is a common occurrence and most of the time it is not a cause for alarm. Your Libertyville, IL dental team suggests that it could be caused by one of the following factors:
- Canker sores – These painful sores are commonly found on the insides of the cheeks, lips, and tongue, however,it is not unheard of for canker sores to also appear on the roof of the mouth.
- Burns – Consuming extremely hot foods and drinks or eating spicy foods may cause soreness on your mouth’s roof resulting in blisters.
- Dental issues – Conditions such as an abscessed tooth have been known to cause bumps on the mouth’s palate. In this case, a visit to the Attar Dental Practice can provide help for relieving the pain.
When should you see the dentist?
Most often, a sore palate is temporary and goes away with no treatment especially if it is caused by any one of the triggers mentioned above. However, if the pain is lingering, severe, or you have pain that becomes intolerable, schedule an appointment with Dr. Ala Dean Attar.
