All About Canker Sores

Last updated 3 years ago

Do you suffer from the occasional canker sore? This video explains why these mouth lesions form. 

A canker sore can develop in response to many circumstances. Viral infections most frequently account for the formation of these small sores, but emotional stress and nutritional deficiencies can cause them to grow as well. They can develop in singular fashion or arise in a cluster. The good news is that canker sores are neither contagious nor long lasting. If you get one, it will likely heal on its own in a matter of days. In the event that your canker sore persists or worsens, consult a dentist.
