I bit my tongue on the tip and the right side and it hurts when I eat. & talk. What can I do to help it heal quickly? How long will it take to heal?

I bit my tongue on the tip and the right side and it hurts when I eat. & talk. What can I do to help it heal quickly? How long will it take to heal?

Few days: It should begin to heal within about 3 days (rarely lasts more than a week). There is not much you can do to make it "heal faster, " although to help alleviate the pain you may consider an over the counter topical anesthetic (you can get them from any drug store). It may only alleviate the pain for a few minutes, but some people find it to be enough to get through meals. If it doesn't heal, see a dr. ...Read more

I bit my tongue last week and there's a sharp pain there now when I eat, talk. Within a week, it seems to be getting worse.?

Inflamed/infected: The tongue typically heals quickly due to the fact that it has a lot of blood flow to it. However, it is easy to keep hitting the same sore spot over and over. Repeated trauma to it (just like any other part of our body) may impede healing and cause inflammation, and possibly even infection (which looks red, swollen, and may or may not have pus coming out of it). ...Read more

Is microscopic blood comes from person mouth whe he or she talks I know that saliva comes but bit curious about blood plz tell me thanx?

NeedTheBloodyDetails: Is this person a vampire? If, not, then I can't imagine anything acceptable about blood coming out of the mouth, especially when talking. Now you said "microscopic," which means to me that you can't see it and need a microscope to see it. So, what's with you? How did you see it? Carry a microscope around with you? Anyway, my guess is the gums but it could be lots of things so see a dentist first. ...Read more

I bit the inside of my cheek while sleeping. My left cheek really hurts when I try to open mouth which includes eating and talking, what can I do?

I bit the inside of my cheek while sleeping. My left cheek really hurts when I try to open mouth which includes eating and talking, what can I do?

It will heal: Unfortunately, there isn't any immediate heal for that. It will heal over time as long as you don't continue to bite it more. If you have ever bit the inside of your cheek, you know how this goes. However, if you bite your cheek while sleeping, you are very likely bruxing, which is clenching or grinding your teeth while sleeping. That can lead to all kinds of problems from worn teeth to TMJ pain. ...Read more

AHankerin'FerACanker: That's most probably a "canker sore" ("apthous ulcer"). They can really hurt! No one is sure of the cause. They tend to recur. There's lots about it on-line. Lotsa really weird recommendations. I've found frequent application of a high-potency steroid works well. The trick is rubbing it in then keeping the saliva away for a while. It could be something else so if not better in 2-3 weeks see a doc ...Read more

Mouth ulcer: This is something that needs to be checked out by your dentist. Oral lesions are hard to describe/diagnose without seeing they firsthand. Some even require biopsy to diagnose (although this is only a few percent of the time). Go see your dentist and get this looked at. Chances are it's nothing serious but you need to get it looked at to ease your worries and put your fears to rest. ...Read more
