A Strategy For Canker Sore Prevention - Causes And Triggers
According to Dr. Ethan Schuman, a St. Louis dentist whose specializes in advanced dental technologies, "There is no one thing that causes a canker sore. But there are events or chemicals that are likely to cause them and if the patient can associate the outbreak with the trigger, then he/she may possibly avoid getting the sores."
Dr. Schuman suggests that watching for key triggers such as toothpaste type, mouth injuries, and nutritional deficiencies can make the difference.
Here's what to look for.
Toothpastes and mouthwashes that contain SLS:
Several studies show that participants who brush with SLS-free toothpaste reduce the frequency of canker sore recurrence, in one study by as much as 81%. In this same study some of the participants reported that using SLS-free toothpaste also reduced canker sore severity. There are SLS free products available.

Canker Sore Treatments
Dr. Schuman has been using a treatment based on an exciting new technology. The product is Canker Cover, a small tablet-like patch that adheres to the sore forming a clear gel-like cover that protects it from irritants while speeding healing.
"Canker Cover has very significant supporting clinical evidence for its efficacy", said Dr. Schuman. "In simple language, the 248 person primary study demonstrates that in most cases, a single patch healed the sore, and that every user experienced immediate pain relief and total protection from food and drink irritants for 8 hours or more."
