Got a new bottom teeth night guard a week ago today. Stopped vaping 5 days ago and now on the patch. 3 days ago tongue pain started and has got worse. Today I woke up with awful taste in my mouth, my tongue and inner lip is raw, sore to talk, swallow etc. Doc says it’s oral yeast infection and has prescribed a gel which I fetch in the morning.
I brush twice a day and floss every night. Night guard soaked in Listerine mouthwash when I wake up. Have been using upper teeth night guards for over a year and never had this before. Got this new one a week ago.
Is it normal for this to be extremely sore? I can’t even eat.
Could new night guard cause this? 3.Any advice?
