5 Tips For Treating Mouth Sores

Prevent Mouth Sores Apache Junction

When people get mouth sores, one of the things they can do while waiting for it to heal is evaluate what they’re eating and make some changes. Here are some tips from Artistry in Dentistry in Gilbert AZ that can help minimize the discomfort of eating and help to 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. Yogurt, mashed potatoes, smoothies are good choices.
  2. Keep your meals bland for a while. It might make for boring eats, but watch out for overly spicy, tart, salty or acidic foods while you have a mouth sore.
  3. Keep it cool. Only eat meals served at room temperature or chilled.
  4. Use a straw. This way, whatever you are drinking can avoid contact with the mouth sore altogether.
  5. Moisten dry foods. You can add sauces, dressings, and gravies to your meals.
