What is a mouth ulcer?
Mouth ulcers, also known as canker sores, are unpleasant little sores that appear in your mouth; they look like round white, yellow, or grey sores.
They’re usually harmless and aren’t contagious, but they can be irritating and painful while you wait for them to heal.
Mouth ulcers can be caused by many things, like biting the inside of your cheek, poorly fitting dentures or braces, feeling tired, stressed or anxious; hormonal changes, and stopping smoking.
What is the cause of a mouth ulcer?
A mouth ulcer is usually nothing to worry about and is typically caused by accidentally biting the inside of your cheek.
It may be caused by other reasons like a viral, bacterial, or fungal infection, or even some medical conditions.
Your mouth ulcer should go away on its own in about 2 weeks, but if there is no improvement after this time, speak to your doctor as an ulcer that doesn’t heal may be a sign of mouth cancer.
