Mouth Ulcers pain relief and treatment in Ajax by Dr. Gill

Causes of Mouth ulcers

Mouth ulcers are caused by many disorders. These include:

  • Canker sores
  • Gingivostomatitis
  • Herpes simplex (fever blister)
  • Leukoplakia
  • Oral cancer
  • Oral lichen planus
  • Oral thrush

Signs and tests

Dr. Gill usually diagnoses the type of mouth ulcer, based on its appearance and location. Blood tests or a biopsy of the ulcer may be needed to confirm the cause. Call (905) 426-8626 to book an appointment at Eagle Ridge Dental Care to get treated.

Mouth Ulcer Treatment

The goal of treatment is to relieve symptoms. The cause, if known, should be treated. Gentle, thorough oral hygiene may relieve some of the symptoms. Topical (rubbed on) antihistamines, antacids, corticosteroids, or other soothing preparations may be recommended for applying directly to the ulcer. Avoid hot or spicy foods, which often increase the pain of mouth ulcers.
