Mouth Ulcers

Mouth ulcersMouth ulcers are very common and can be very painful, usually lasting for about a week. It is not known what causes mouth ulcers, although bacteria may be a contributing cause in some cases. Other known factors include minor injuries (which can be caused by a slip of the toothbrush or after a dental procedure), stress, hormonal changes and allergies.  Occasionally, mouth ulcers can be symptoms of other medical conditions such as Crohn’s or Coeliac disease. It is also common in auto-immune disorders.
