The Wound On The Tongue Never Healed Due To Pointed Teeth?
sorry, the answer did not answer my question. So my father has had sores on his tongue (inside) for 3 weeks. At first I was afraid that he had tongue cancer, but there were no symptoms of spots or lumps / pain in swallowing or other signs except for wounds that did not heal. Last week, I went to the general doctor and was only given mouthwash and tablets, the swollen gums had gone flat but the wound had not healed. My father said that the wound was due to his sharp back teeth, was the wound caused by the sharp teeth that long? Or how? Thanks:)
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your confusion. Actually the wound on the tongue is not specified whether it is caused by pointed teeth, bacterial infections, punctured edges of food or a toothbrush. Recovery time will be more or less the same.
But in your father's case, maybe the condition could be longer because if the wound is not healed due to his teeth stabbing his wound continuously, the wound becomes difficult to heal. Just like you have a wound on the sole of your foot, but you do not rest your feet, instead you run around. Of course the wound will heal longer than the wound treated by resting the leg. Same with your father, the wound itself might be able to heal quickly original, or a maximum of 1-2 weeks, but because it rubbed constantly with his teeth, the wound does not heal.
So that our advice now you should first check your father's condition to the ENT doctor, because ENT doctors are also competent in dealing with problems that exist in the oral cavity. Your doctor will first see if the correct cause is sharp teeth through a history and physical examination. Because any sharp teeth, if he does not bite his tongue, his tongue should not hurt / If your father suspected this was due to his sharp teeth, it means that his tongue must be bitten repeatedly by his teeth so that the wound does not heal. This must be checked and checked by an ENT doctor. Because if it turns out it was due to a fungal infection, the handling will be different. If it is because of the teeth, maybe your father will be referred to the dentist.
Meanwhile, ask your father to maintain oral hygiene by regularly brushing his teeth, avoid smoking, limit consumption of foods with high sugar and salt levels, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
