What Causes canker sores? how to get rid of canker sores?

Canker sores, also known as aphthous ulcers, are small, painful sores that develop inside the mouth. They can occur on the inside of the lips, cheeks, gums, tongue, and throat. While canker sores are common and usually harmless, they can cause discomfort and make it difficult to eat or speak. In this article, we will explore the causes of canker sores and discuss various methods to get rid of them.

Causes of Canker Sores:

Trauma or injury: Accidental biting of the inside of the mouth, aggressive tooth brushing, or dental procedures that cause tissue damage can lead to the development of canker sores.
Certain foods: Consuming highly acidic or spicy foods, such as citrus fruits, tomatoes, chocolate, coffee, or nuts, can trigger the formation of canker sores in susceptible individuals.
Hormonal changes: Some women may experience canker sores during their menstrual cycle due to hormonal fluctuations.
Nutritional deficiencies: Deficiencies in vitamin B12, iron, zinc, or folate have been associated with an increased risk of developing canker sores.
Immune system disorders: People with compromised immune systems, such as those with HIV/AIDS or autoimmune diseases, are more prone to developing canker sores.
Allergies: Certain allergens, such as certain toothpaste ingredients or specific foods, can trigger an allergic reaction, leading to the development of canker sores.
Stress and emotional factors: Psychological stress, anxiety, and emotional factors can contribute to the occurrence of canker sores.
