Consultation with MD: Your implant surgeon and transplant surgeon and general physician need to consult and evaluate your ability to tolerate surgery as well as the status of your immune system. A complete evaluation of your health status, including blood work, will be needed. Most likely, you should be able to have dental implants placed.

See a doctor: If it is indeed a canker sore, they typically need to run their course and can only be treated palliatively. There are some anesthetic rinses your doctor can prescribe, and there have been some interesting results using lasers on these lesions. However, you should definitely see a doctor if this does not resolve within 2 weeks of it's initially presentation.

2 mins and soft : Brushing too aggressively and/or using a hard bristle brush can cause the gums to receed, which can lead to a litany of problems. Using a soft bristle brush with light pressure for 2 mins is what's recommended. Remember to angle the bristles so that they contact where the gums and teeth meet and to use small circular motions.
