Usually oral canker sores resolve on their own in a few days. Should the sores be large, painful, or persistent, your dentist may prescribe an antimicrobial mouth rinse, a corticosteroid ointment.

Some things that can be done to prevent future canker sores:
  1. Avoiding foods spicy or acidic foods that irritate your mouth
  2. Avoiding irritation from gum chewing
  3. Brushing with a soft-bristled brush after meals and flossing daily, which will keep your mouth free of foods that might trigger a sore.
