Hi there. I have a health anxiety, and dental phobia. I have been going to a very kind and understanding dentist for years now.and have confidence in her I have had loads of work done on my teeth and s lot of extractions . I have a partial plastic denture with some teeth for the top.i have noticed in the last few weeks that sometimes when I eat and when chewing I get a feeling of soreness on the righ side of my teeth. I had a look and got my husband to look and there was a small ulcer thingy on the soft pallet at the back of the soft pallet as far as your tongue can go.it goes away after a little while and then it comes back.a few days later or maybe a week, I have decided to stop eating crisps and rough crusts like toast to see if it is anything do with it. I have been leaving my top denture out a few times during the day and eating on the left side.as its really worrying me now as what it can be. My husband said it looked like a white yellow spot and later on he said it was red, it has gone now since last week..I saw my dentist in May but I don't think I had it then , I know at the end of the day I will have to go back to the dentist for her to look. At the area, I have been getting a lot of problems with my top teeth that remain and the bottom teeth as I have gum desease I Sensodyne toothpaste original as it helps with the sensitivity . I am scared this thing that comes and goes it something serious and it's not helping my phobia and anxiety any kind words or advice would be appreciated. Thankyou.
