Mouth pain can be a sign of gum disease, dental infections, mouth sores, or abnormal growth in the mouth that originates from oral cancer, especially if the tongue and roof of the mouth are affected. Below we discuss several mouth pain causes and categories of conditions. Mouth pain can be severe and debilitating to the point of interfering with necessary activities like eating and drinking. Several structures in the mouth can be impacted by pain, including the teeth, gums, tongue, and lips. Pain may be the only issue, but other bothersome symptoms are often present, and some causes of mouth pain can be dangerous to overall health.

What Causes Mouth Ulcers in Children & Ways to Prevent It
You have three pairs of major salivary glands — parotid, sublingual and submandibular. Each gland has its own tube duct leading from the gland to the mouth. Dry mouth, or xerostomia zeer-o-STOE-me-uh , refers to a condition in which the salivary glands in your mouth don't make enough saliva to keep your mouth wet. Dry mouth is often due to the side effect of certain medications or aging issues or as a result of radiation therapy for cancer. Less often, dry mouth may be caused by a condition that directly affects the salivary glands. Saliva helps prevent tooth decay by neutralizing acids produced by bacteria, limiting bacterial growth and washing away food particles.

Mouth Problems, Noninjury
Fever blisters--also known as cold sores--are a symptom of infection with the herpes simplex virus. One-third experience periodic outbreaks that are sometimes accompanied by flu-like symptoms. The absence of characteristic respiratory symptoms of flu such as dry cough and nasal congestion distinguishes between flu-like symptoms due to herpes and those caused by the influenza virus. Low-grade fever or a subjective sense of feverishness without a measurable elevation in body temperature sometimes signals an impending outbreak of fever blisters. For fever that interferes with rest, patients can try over-the-counter medicines that contain acetaminophen or ibuprofen.
