Hello generally there are many causes for ulcers in mouth such as stress, vitamin deficiency, gastric problems, sharp edges of tooth. Depending on the causative agent the treatment can b planned accordingly.
Recurrent apthous ulcers are most commonly caused by underlying issues such as bad digestion, poor oral hygiene, vitamin deficiencies, malocclusion and sharp edges and some others... Plz visit a dentist as early as possible. We at Laser Smile Care Centre treat ulcers with the wonderful Diode lasers. The Diode lasers zap the infective ulcers and cause rapid healing. Worth trying for ur case alongside treating any systemic disorder. God bless u always
Oral gels only provide temporary relief for ulcers. For complete management and treatment of ulcers, the underlying causative reason should be eradicated, which can be Vit B12, folate deficiency, stomach issues etc. So for complete treatment, do visit a dentist.
Application of oral gels can only give a temporary relief.
Recurring Ulcers can happen due to multiple reasons like Hematologic Deficiencies ( iron, folate, Vit.B 12 ); Psychological stress ; anxiety; trauma from any sharp edges of teeth and allergy to any specific food.
Hence, for proper treatment we need to find out the causative factor in your sister's case.Accordingly, definite treatment can be started.You may visit an experienced Oral Medicine specialist regarding the same.
Hi, we need to see what is causing it. If its ant rough end of tooth, we need to polish it. If its vitamin deficiency or stress related, need to start her with a multivitamin. Ideally please do a visit and take it from there.
Ulcers may have various causes for treating them we need to know the reason which is causing it ...it may be nutritional deficiency specially vitamin b..may be some gastric problem or some underlying cause in the oral cavity itself..kindly get yourself checked by the dentist..and start on vitamin bcomplex once daily..
Ulcers generally take 1-2weeks to heal completely. recurrent ulcers can be due to local mouth conditions such as rough teeth surface or rough mouth appliances or dentures n cheek bites. It can also b due to General nutrtional deficiency, digestion prob, work pressure n stressful lifestyle etc. Certain bacterial n viral infections also cause ulcers. Treatment: start on multivitamin tabs which includes vit c n iron supplements if ur hb% levels r low. Apply dologel oral ointment on ulcers thrice daily. Avoid spicy n oily food, alcohol, tea n coffee. Drink plenty of water n hv fibrous n citrous foods. Visit dentist to rule out oral factors responsible for ulcers.
