Caption

Aspirin burn in mouth of patient. Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) has a caustic (acidic) effect if left in contact with the mucosal lining of the mouth for an extended period of time. Aspirin is sometimes placed adjacent to a painful tooth in the mistaken belief that it will relieve the symptoms. Instead it causes epithelial necrosis (death of the lining inside the mouth), wounds, sores, inflammation and ulceration. A typical aspirin burn will heal itself within 7 to 10 days.
