Well there area few causes of stubborn ulcers in oral cavity. You need to take a few measures and see if this helps ;

Meticulous oral hygiene with dental floss and brushing , including cleaning your tongue. Using a good quality mouthwash usually helps clean every corner of your mouth.

Using triamcinolone orabase for ulcers .

Adding B12 supplements to your diet as vit B12 deficiency is one of the common causes of mouth ulcers.

If you have issues like gastric reflux , use antacid medications like omeprazole .

Now if the sores still dont go away then we need to do work up for few autoimmune conditions that cause oral ulcers like IBD, Celiac, Behcet's, , certain forms of arthritis like reactive arthritis etc. These conditions are usually associated with a few other symptoms too. However in case of resistant ulcers ,its recommended to look for an underlying cause.

I hope you found it useful.

Let me know if you have any further queries.

Wishing you a healthy life.

Regards.
