Oral infections are very often the cause of pain and discomfort. There are many possible infections affecting human’s oral cavity: canker sores, cavities, gingivitis, herpangina, gingivostomatitis, herpes, thrush and more. If you fear you’re experiencing one of those, make sure you arrange an appointment at Dental Emergency Cheadle.
What are Oral infections
Canker sores are created on the inner side of cheeks, on tongue and palate. They also occur on the lips (inner side) and tongue. Camsores are noncancerous aphthous ulcers.
Cavities are also known as dental caries. Those are small areas around the dismantled enamels of the teeth in which certain kinds of streptococcus (bacteria that lives in the mouth) create tooth decay.
Gingivitis is a professional denomination for the inflamed gums. Gums become red, swollen and tender by plaque coating the teeth along the gum line.
Herpangina mostly occurs on the roof of the mouth. It may burst on the inside of the cheeks also. Painful sores create as a result of such infection.
Gingivostomatitis is gum and mouth infection caused by herpes simplex virus type 1. Initial fever and illness are followed by blisters which pop not long after they create.
Herpes is quite a common infection. It is also known as cold sores (the most common form) or fever blisters. Once inside the body, the virus stays there for life, but it is unlikely to cause serious problems.
A yeast-like fungus named thrush creates the best in moist surroundings of the body. Cracks in the corners of the mouth appear. Thrush can also affect the tongue, lips, the inner side of the cheeks and palate.
