A week ago I went to a business trip and I forgot to brush my sensitive teeths and gums for a day. ..
As a result I get some gum pain, but 3 days after that and after a sweet dessert, I felt some ulcers and canker sores in my mouth and lips. So long story short, a question came to my mind straight away, can gum disease or periodontitis cause mouth ulcers and canker sores?
Can Gum Disease Cause Mouth Ulcers:
Canker sores are usually small ulcers with a white or gray center and begins as a red spot or bump. Mouth ulcers in general occur inside the mouth and are bacterial in nature. Periodontitis or Gum Disease is a condition in which the gums and periodontal structures become inflamed. Both gum diseases, gingivitis and periodontitis can causes inflammation and gum bleeding with other symptoms like
mouth sores or irregular patches, difficulty chewing, dry mouth, bad breath, swollen, tender gums and a sour taste in the mouth.
Note: If you ever notice any of these symptoms, find soon as possible your dentist for an appointment, as swollen gums and canker sores can be treated with proper oral hygiene and the right diet.
