In brief: Prevention

Canker sore or more specifically aphthous ulcer can be prevented by avoiding a common foam detergent found in most toothpastes called sodium laurel sulfate.
Switching to biotene or other toothpaste not containing this ingredient can be the cure in preventing this painful condition.

In brief: Some suggestions:

Eat a healthy diet, get plenty of sleep, and avoid citrus fruits, which seem to be particularly good at causing them. If you get lots of them, let a doctor run some tests to make sure there is no underlying cause.
