5 Tips For Treating Mouth Sores

Prevent Mouth Sores Philpot

Hi. We’re Drs. David Thompson and Vicki Frey. When our patients get mouth sores, we advise them to evaluate what they’re eating and make some changes. Avoid the discomfort of eating and help increase the speed of healing by following these tips:

1. Eat soft or pureed foods. Don’t worry, you won’t have to eat baby food – plenty of adult dishes fit the bill:

cream soups
hot cereal
mashed potatoes

2. Keep your meals bland for a while. It’s no fun for your taste buds, but watch out for overly spicy, tart, salty or acidic foods while you have a mouth sore.

3. Keep it cool. Eat only food that is at room temperature or served chilled.

4. Use a straw to bypass the mouth sore altogether.

5.  Moisten dry foods. Do this by adding sauces, dressings, and gravies to your meals.
