In brief: See your dentist

canker sore is the most common oral lesion.
Individual ulcers typically last 1-2 weeks. Try to keep adequate oral hygiene as possible. If concerned, see your dentist for consultation. If your dentist has a diode laser in their office, this is another great option for treating canker sores immediately.

In brief: Canker sores

There is not a quick and easy way to get rid of canker sores so here are some things that will make you feel better for the 7-10 says that they take to heal.
Avoid hot, spicy and hard crispy foods. OTC canker sore treat like Kancaid will make you feel better for a short while. If you get them frequently you may have sensitivity to some chemicals, like SLS in toothpaste.

In brief: Canker sore

Their is no good answer to this question.
A canker sore causes localized tissue destruction, possibly as an over-active immune response to an unknown trigger and must heal to resolve. There as as many opinions concerning "the best treatment " for cancer sores as their are sands on a beach. Cautering the sore with debacterol is effective but it's hard to find a md or dds that has it. Try canker-rid.

In brief: Cautery

Cautery of canker sores decreases pain and speeds healing.
See oral surgeon for this procedure. During cautery, an instrument or chemical substance is used to burn, sear or destroy tissue. Debacterol topical solution and silver nitrate sticks 2 options.
