What are canker sores and what causes them?

Canker sores, also known as aphthous ulcers, are small lesions that appear on the inside of the mouth as round or oval sores typically with a red border and yellow or white center. Canker sores do not develop on the external surfaces of the lips and should not be confused with cold sores. The cause of canker sore development varies from person to person, with an exact cause unknown. It is recommended that you seek treatment from your dentist if you have a recurrent canker sore that does not heal after 14 days.  If you just want some relief, come in for a treatment to take away the pain.

We care about our patients and consider you part of our Bogey Hills Dental family. We promise to treat you with the integrity and care that we would provide to our own family.
