What can I do to stop canker sores! When 1 goes away 2 more takes it place! My mouth is sore all the time help!

They are more common when patients have braces on. To prevent them, do not use a mouthwash with alcohol in it. Use a mild toothpaste. Be sure you are eating a healthy diet. There are some studies that show a zinc supplement can help.
