Canker Sores: 7 Tips to Relieve Pain & Speed Healing

Have you ever had an ulcer? This is a shallow acid in your mouth. What dental supplies causes these? We don’t know. Many have theories, but none has been proven. If you’ve ever had that experience, we all agree that they’re hurt! The good news is that they usually last only 7-14 days. But what do you do for those days filled with pain? Here are some tips we hope can help alleviate pain and even accelerate healing.
Avoid citrus and spicy foods
Avoid contact with toothbrushes or utensils
Use OTC (counter) numbness
Gargle with baking soda, salt and water (dissolve 1 teaspoon of soda in half a cup of warm water)
Use q-tip to apply a small amount of magnesium milk to your sore every day
Make a dough out of baking soda and water and apply a cotton swab to your pain several times a day
Brush your teeth gently & floss every day
