HELP FOR: MOUTH ULCER AND DENTURE RUBBING
Although mouth ulcers are harmless, a long lasting mouth ulcer is sometimes the sign of mouth cancer. It needs checking as soon as possible. Mouth ulcers usually appear inside the mouth, on the inside of cheeks or lips. Sometimes they can also appear on the tongue. There also may be more than one at a time and they can vary in size. Mouth ulcers are not contagious. Most mouth ulcers are caused by biting the inside of the cheek, badly fitting dentures or braces. Sometimes they are triggered by things beyond your control such as hormonal changes, your genes, or a long term condition such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), a vitamin B12 or iron deficiency, some medications or smoking.
Denture rubbing can occur during the first few weeks of wearing new dentures or it is even possible to experience pain with your current dentures as your gums and bone structure change over time. If your dentures are slightly too loose or slipping this will cause rubbing so it may mean you need to see your Dentist or Clinical Dental Technician (whichever made your dentures).
Taking your dentures out at night will give your gums chance to relax and applying Mouth Ulcer and Denture Rubbing Gel from URConfi -dent, overnight will soothe the sore spots and reduce any inflammation before putting your dentures in again the following morning.
