Do you recall noticing a painful open sore with a red border and a white or yellowish center developing in your mouth? Have you ever felt a tingling or burning sensation inside you mouth or lips? It is most likely by now that you know we are talking about Canker sores or oral ulcers. Our dentist in Burbank has the perfect solution for these uncomfortable sores!

Why do canker sores appear?

Even though the exact cause of canker sores is unknown, their appearances have been correlated with the excessive consumption of citric fruits (oranges and lemons), sudden weight loss, stress, physical trauma (tooth brush abrasion or accidental biting) and low levels of vitamin B12, folic acid and iron.

How long do they last?

If is it a minor oral ulcer, with a size of 3 mm to 10 mm, it will go away in about one week. A major canker sore, which is greater than 10 mm and is extremely painful, will last for about two weeks. However, the worst kind of canker sore, called herpetiform ulcerations, is characterized by multiple 1 to 3 mm lesions that form clumps and may take around a month to heal.
