Advice From Your Bloomfield Dentist: 5 Tips For Treating Mouth Sores

Bloomfield Dentist

Welcome to the Sundance Dental & Orthodontics blog. When our Kirtland and Bloomfield area patients get mouth sores, we advise them to evaluate what they’re eating and make some changes to their oral hygiene. By following the advice of your Bloomfield Dentist, you too can avoid discomfort when eating and sometimes even 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. Eating foods such as cream soups, yogurt, hot cereal, mashed potatoes, and puddings can easily help mouth sores heal and even prevent them.

2. Keep Your Meals Bland

We know that sticking with bland food for a while doesn’t sound like any fun, however, you should be on the lookout for overly spicy, tart, salty, or acidic foods while you have a mouth sore. These foods can cause the pain and mouth sore to flare up again.

3. Keep It Cool

Your Bloomfield Dentist recommends that you eat food that is at room temperature or served chilled. These foods will help you heal and prevent the pain from flaring up again.

4. Use A Straw

Use a straw whenever possible so that whatever you are drinking can bypass the mouth sore altogether and move straight to the back of your throat.

5. Try To Moisten Dry Foods

Moistening foods can be done by adding sauces, dressings, and gravies to your meals. Soft foods are less likely to make your mouth sore flare up with pain.

Your Bloomfield Dentist hopes that these suggestions will help you the next time you suffer from a mouth sore.
