What to do with dental ulcer? Many diseases in medicine cannot be completely cured. We call them "terminal diseases". Unfortunately, oral ulcers are one of them. Oral ulcers that we refer to daily usually refer to "recurrent oral ulcers" and "recurrent aphthous ulcers", which are the most common oral mucosal diseases. According to statistics, more than 20% of people will experience oral ulcers, regardless of age, gender, and race.

The same can be said for mouth ulcers, some people have mild symptoms and some people are very painful. Some people grow only a few times a year, and some grow one after another. Some people only grow one at a time, while others grow several at a time. These are mouth ulcers, and the main categories of mouth ulcers are: mild, severe, and herpetiform ulcers.
1. Mild oral ulcers
Mild oral ulcers are the most common, accounting for 80% of all patients with oral ulcers, mainly on the oral mucosa of the lips, tongue, cheeks, palate and other parts, and the size does not exceed 5 mm.
The course of the disease is relatively short. Generally, it begins to heal after 5 days, and heals after 7 to 10 days without leaving scars. The whole process is not too painful.
The remaining two are less common and serious.
2. Severe oral ulcers
Severe canker sores are larger than 1 cm in diameter and are deeper and more painful than mild ulcers. May last 1 to 2 months.
3. Herpetic ulcer
Herpetiform ulcers occur when there are as many as ten to dozens of small, dense sores up to 2 mm in diameter. This ulcer is quite ferocious. Because it is uncommon, the risk of severe and herpetiform ulcers also increases. Be vigilant if you notice deep ulcers in your mouth that can't be healed for a long time. Some oral cancers do this too. At this time, the first thing to do is not to use drugs indiscriminately on it, and you should immediately seek help from a dentist.

Mouth ulcers are as elusive as the common cold. Some scholars put forward the theory of "triple factors" of genetics, environment and immunity in the pathogenesis of oral ulcers. With the genetic background of susceptibility, coupled with appropriate environmental factors, if the body has an abnormal immune response, oral ulcers may occur.
But there is an uplifting message, the self-limiting nature of what we call mouth ulcers every day. In layman's terms, even if we don't take medicine or see a doctor, it will heal on its own! Of course, it is limited to those who can endure the pain, and are absolutely sure that they are not suffering from other diseases or oral manifestations of other diseases.


Since there is no cure, how to bear the pain caused by oral ulcers?
1. Oral spray treatment measures
We can use Qiu Ji Bencao Oral Spray, its main effect is to reduce inflammation and swelling, and refresh the mouth. Just smear it on the mouth ulcers, it can be effective quickly, promote the absorption of beneficial substances in the skin, and keep the mouth ulcers away from you.
2. How to "handle it yourself" correctly
If you are too lazy to go to the hospital to see a doctor, you can also deal with this small problem that can be cured by yourself.
Over-the-counter medicines such as Huasu tablets (sididian iodine) sold on the market are relatively safe. However, the instructions should be read carefully before use, and children must use it under the supervision of adults.
If the course of oral ulcers exceeds your expectations and the symptoms do not tend to ease, please go to the dental hospital to find a doctor for diagnosis and treatment.
3. It hurts to eat anything, can you not eat anything?
As an ordinary earthling, it is best to cut down on spicy and overheated foods. Some sour fruits, such as citrus, grapes, tomatoes, etc., will irritate the wound and aggravate the pain. It is recommended not to eat during the ulcer.
4. Is gargling with salt water "sprinkling salt on the wound"?
Doctors recommend gargling with mouthwash (including water, light salt water) after meals to maintain oral hygiene. Even if there is no oral ulcer, it is recommended that you rinse your mouth after meals. Rinsing more frequently during ulcers can shorten the time that food residues stay in the mouth, which can reduce the growth of bacteria, thus reducing the possibility of ulcer infection causing symptoms to become worse.

Although oral ulcers are "incurable", it does not mean "completely unpreventable".
Although it can't stop it from growing, it can prolong the recurrence period, reduce the pain level, and shorten the healing time.
1. Maintain a good attitude. Although oral ulcers are "terminal diseases", they are not life-threatening (except for those with cancerous ulcers). The worse the general state of mind, the more ready the ulcer is.
2. A positive attitude towards life, good living habits, early to bed and early to rise, more exercise, and balanced nutrition.
