In brief: Laser works well

Researchers are not sure of the cause of aphthous ulcers.
There is no known preventive measure. Treatment is palliative with low level laser therapy able to relieve pain and accelerate healing with about 5 minutes of trea. Dment. Biolase waterlase iplus or md works well in my practice, of the lasers I have tried.

In brief: Aphthasol (amlexanox)

There are a variety of treatments, but Aphthasol (amlexanox) is one of the most commonly prescribed.
It works as an antiallergic and antiinflammatory. However, sometimes avoiding the triggers can help just as much as the treatments.
