As a dentist in Portland, OR, I often see patients with canker sores. A canker sore is a non-cancerous, non-contagious ulcer that occurs in the tissues of the mouth. Canker sores can happen to anyone at any age, and occur for a variety of reasons including nutritional deficiencies, local trauma like biting the tongue or cheek, stress, and spicy foods. Others seem to be genetically predisposed to getting canker sores. Canker sores are round and occur in a variety of sizes. They have a red border with a yellow or grey center. Some patients have no pain or discomfort associated with them, while others have severe pain and discomfort that interferes with eating, drinking, and speaking. Canker sores can last anywhere from 7-14 days, and there is no cure for them.
The good news is that I offer treatment for cankers sores that completely stops the pain from the canker sore, seals the damaged tissue, and aids natural healing processes after just one application, and requires only a few minutes to perform. Here’s how it works. I simply dry the ulcer with a cotton swab and gently apply the Debacterol liquid directly on the ulcer.
In only 5 seconds, the pain is gone! Typically, the ulcer is replaced by healthy tissue in 3-5 days. Best of all, the treatment only costs $10, regardless of how many cankers sores need to be treated.
