Canker Sore Remedies & Causes | The Dacula Dentist

Canker sores can be either mild or severe. Consequently preferred remedies vary based on your symptoms. Canker sores often heal on their own but here’s a few remedies you may want to try in order to speed up the healing process:

•Rinsing your mouth with salt water

•Only eating foods that are easy to chew and not very acidic

•Visiting you dentist if the canker sore is really bad or not healing properly

•Temporarily stop using any home whitening treatments which may aggravate your canker sore

Causes of Canker Sores

Canker sores can have a myriad of causes including some of the following:

•Minor mouth injury (biting the cheek, brushing or flossing too hard, etc.)

•Lack of certain vitamins or other nutrition

•Bacteria called helicobacter pylori

•Dysfunctional immune system

•Emotional stress

•Certain chemicals in toothpastes and mouthwashes

If you have a canker sore that hasn’t healed ordinarily the way they normally do, it’s very important that you see a dentist immediately. Dentist s can offer prescribed drugs and oral bandages that can make speaking and eating a little simpler. If you have additional questions on canker sore causes or treatments, then give us a call and we will be happy to answer your questions.
