The first type of canker sore is a simple canker sore. This sore can show up about three to four times a year. When this happens, the sore can last for about a week. This ulcer is common for people between the ages of 10 and 20. The second type of sore is a complex canker sore. This sore is less common and it typically affects people who have had them before.

There are many different things that could be the cause behind a canker sore. It seems as though the most common culprits of the sores are stress and oral tissue injury. Another culprit that can trigger a canker is acid, so avoid acidic fruits and vegetables as much as possible. The last culprit is a sharp tooth or a dental appliance.

There isn’t a fast and effective treatment to get rid of canker sores. Fortunately, the pain should fade in a few days and the sore should disappear within a week.
