I have a mouth sore at the bottom of my mouth, the bottom of my cheek, and its been there for quite a while and hurts really bad!. I have tried mouthwash, orjel, and even gargling with salt water and nothing seems to help. Do you have any suggestions of what I should try?

  • It looks like that you have apthous ulcers / canker sores as these are are most common sites for them. There is no deifinite treatment for them and no exact cause is known. It will take around 7-10 days to heal but you have to take care that no secondary infection takes place and for this maintain very good oral hygiene and try not to irritate them. You can apply some anesthetic gel on them and you can take vitamin suppements like vitamin B complex and vitamin C. If they donot heal within 10 days then you can visit your dentist for evaluation. for more info on Apthous Ulcers you can read this comprehensive aritcle... http://www.identalhub.com/article_canker-sore-234.aspx
