Brush your teeth at least twice daily

To PREVENT canker sores from ever forming, brush your teeth well at least twice per day. Rinsing with mouthwash doesn't hurt either. Since I started this regimen, I do not get canker sores at all any more. If I miss even two days in a row brushing in the evening, I get at least two or three sores within a few days. Even my dentist is puzzled at such a preventive method. It really works for me!

Absorbine jr.

Put absorbine jr. on the sore and let dry if you can. It will burn like crazy at first but it will feel so much better in a few seconds. Do this every time it starts to hurt and it will be gone in no time! this also works on cold sores.

Alum for Canker Sores

Alum (used for making pickles - find it in the spice aisle at your grocery store).

Take some Alum and water to make a thick paste. Apply to the canker sore. It can sting!!! I do this two, sometimes three times and within 24 hours the sore is gone.

C-Daniels Solution

I went to a doctor in West Hollywood and he prescribed me C-Daniels solution. It is for cancer and HIV/AIDS patients who get Thrush. (when the entire mouth is a canker sore due to chemo and AIDS cocktails, yeah imagine that, your entire mouth is a canker sore) My primary treating physician has never heard of this stuff, and only a few pharmacies can make it. It's a liquid, swish it, spit and sores literally melt in a day! Well, worth trying to find this stuff. C-Daniels Solution. Remember it.

tea bag canker sore remedy

Put a wet tea bag(regular or decaf, not herbal) on the canker sore and leave it there for about 5 minutes. It tastes yucky and stains your teeth a little but its the best cure I've found so far. Do this once or twice a day til gone. It works faster than anything else we've used.

Vitamin C

I used to get 4 or 5 canker sores in my mouth at one time...ouch!! I read that taking a daily vitamin C supplement will prevent canker sores. I started taking 1000 mg of C per day, half in the morning and half at night, about 10 years ago and I have not suffered from a canker sore since!!

Its a mouth wash, so use it up to three or four times daily. you can get it at any walgreens. It will help with the pain and actually helps is heal faster, considering when I get a canker sore, it becomes huge and it really hurts, so this works for me..
