A canker sore is also identified as a mouth ulcer. These conditions originate in your mouth or cheeks. Their exact cause is not fully known, and cases can vary by each individual patient. Known conditions that can aggravate canker sores are:
- Specific types of medicine
- Stopping smoking activity
- Increased anxiety of stress
- Consuming highly acidic or spicy foods
- Irritation from braces
- Hormonal variations from pregnancy or menopause
Canker sores, or aphthous ulcers, are recurring conditions, and in the absence of the necessary professional treatment, they can last for at least two weeks. Most cases can be treated with the application of a soft tissue laser.
