The Cause Of Swelling On The Cheeks Accompanied By Thrush In The Mouth?
Good morning, a few days ago I woke up and found that there were 3 canker sores in my mouth and swelling on my cheeks. Even though I drank a lot of water and took vitamin C, but 3 sprue appeared at the same time. In addition, my cheeks are also swollen on the right cheek near the jaw and when held like a lump and painful. Why is that? Please help, thank you
Hello Virania, thank you for asking.
Swelling of the cheeks, especially those near the jaw, can be caused by several things, for example:
caries (cavities) gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) periodontitis (inflammation of the supporting tissues of the teeth) abscess gum sores cysts on the gums If swollen cheeks and thrush are in an adjacent location, then it might be related. Canker sores are also diverse. The action you take is actually right, i.e. drink lots of water and take vitamins. But other causes may still occur. for example:
dental and oral hygiene that is not optimal. psychological stress. insufficient sleep patterns. certain drug effects. unbalanced nutrition intake. smoking, drinking caffeine and alcohol (if you have those habits). infected wounds or wounds. chronic gastric disorders. Sprue generally heal itself, although it is quite disturbing everyday. It's good to make sure your oral hygiene is maintained. Brush your teeth at least 2 times a day in the right way (brush the front and side teeth in the top down direction). Use dental floss to clean between your teeth and gums. If there is a chance to go to the dentist, check the condition of your mouth. Sleep 7-9 hours a night. Try to exercise 3-5 times a day for 30 minutes (you can do the type of exercise suitable for home, during this quarantine period).
Hopefully this information can help you. Regards.
