It is estimated that 1 in 5 people suffer from mouth
ulcers. The incidence is probably higher in younger
age groups, especially teenagers.
What are mouth ulcers?
Mouth ulcers are small painful sores that occur on the
tongue or the lips and cheeks. They can range from a
small size (minor) to large lesions up to 10 mm. across
(major). Then occur singly or in clusters.
What causes mouth ulcers?
No single cause has been found for mouth ulcers. Traumas
such as cheek biting, orthodontic braces, etc., are
an obvious cause. But certain ulcers form for no apparent
reason. Usually being “run down” will lead
to a higher incidence of mouth ulcers.
Are they contagious?
No, commonly occurring mouth ulcers are not passed on.

- To obtain relief from pain
