Mouth problems

Any problem with your mouth can affect eating and drinking as well as your ability to talk comfortably.

Some of the common causes of mouth problems include:

  • Certain medicines that cause a dry mouth.
  • Radiotherapy treatment to the head and neck area, which can cause a dry and sore mouth.
  • Some drugs that can cause painful mouth ulcers.
  • Infections of the mouth, lips and throat - particularly oral thrush.
