Do you suffer from shallow lesions or ulcers that appear on or under your mouth, at the base of your gums or on the inside of your lips or cheeks? While these aphthous ulcers, also known as canker sores, have been difficult to treat in the past, they are now effectively treated using a painless soft tissue laser at Barron Family Dental!
Symptoms and Causes of Canker Sores
Aphthous ulcers are a common oral infection and most often occur in women. While small in size, a canker sore can be painful and make eating and speaking uncomfortable.
Canker sores are typically round in shape, gray or white in color, and have a red border or edge. The cause of these sores is unknown but stress, tissue injury, and acidic foods or drinks can irritate canker sores even more.
If you suffer from canker sores, be sure to see your physician to rule out other health issues that might exist. In some cases, canker sores reflect an underlying health problem, a gastrointestinal tract disorder or nutritional deficiency.
