In brief: Depends

If they occur often you might want to see if avoiding certain chemicals may decrease the amount of them. A non- sls (sodium lauryl sulphate) toothpaste has helped many of my patients.
Avoiding harsh mouthwashes such as the original listenine has helped others. If over the counter products don't give you relief you may discuss a medication with you dentist like a kenolog / steroid combination.
