Canker sores, also known as aphthous ulcers, are a very common oral health issue, so don't be too alarmed if you get them. But they are very painful and discomforting. They can appear in a number of places – on the inside of our lips and cheeks, the base of our gums, and on or even under the tongue. They are different from fever blisters, which people sometimes mistake them for.
Canker sores generally take a few days before they reach their peak as far as pain and irritability goes. Basically, they don’t start hurting immediately, and this is actually a good thing because it gives us some time to deal with it before it becomes unbearable.
But you're in luck, there’s a very simple trick you can do to get rid of this nuisance and it does NOT require any pharmaceutical medication.
You can do this more than one time a day, but night time just before bed is best.
Start by mixing one teaspoon of salt in a glass of water.
Swish the salt water around your mouth and gargle for a few minutes, and then spit it out.
The next thing you do is warm up some water, then squeeze some lemon juice and drink it.
Don’t add any sugar to it.
Might sound silly, but this works like magic and your canker sore should be gone by the morning.
You're welcome :-)
NOTE: Prevention is the best defense. Try brushing your teeth with coconut oil.
