Canker sores are small ulcers in the mouth, often resulting in eating difficulties. These typically disappear in about a week or two without much effort, although an antimicrobial mouth rinse is highly recommended. However, sores that don’t heal as easily can be an indication of a serious problem, especially if they are accompanied by numbness, bleeding, discoloration, and lumps.
Regular dental visits and teeth cleaning services are necessary for optimum dental health. However, there are dental problems that require immediate attention and care from reliable emergency dentists like Dr. Haleh Ashkevari D.D.S of Brockington Dental Centre.
