Hi.... Follow these steps.... use a soft toothbrush to brush your teeth...use a toothpaste that doesn’t contain sodium lauryl sulphate, as this may be irritating... avoid hard, spicy, salty, acidic or hot food and drink until the ulcer heals.... If necessary, you may be prescribed a course of stronger corticosteroids to help reduce pain and swelling, and speed up healing....
