How to prevent canker sores?
This site already covers canker sore treatments but it is perhaps more important to look at methods of preventing canker sores so you do not have to go through any canker sore pain again.
It is not scientifically known what causes canker sores or why some people seem to develop them more often than others, but there are things in common with many people who get canker sores.
One thing that seems to cause them for a lot of people is doing something to your mouth (gum or tongue) that results in an injury. This might be burning your mouth on a drink or food that is too hot – this will cause a burn that might turn into a canker sore. Personally I get a lot of canker sores from burning my mouth and the burn turning into a sore the next day. The same thing applies to biting your tongue or your gum – any small cut might turn into a canker sore.
The best way to avoid the above is to be careful with your food – don’t put it in your mouth if it is too hot.
