Can You Get Canker Sore Relief From Gum Disease Remedies?
If you have ever suffered from canker sores you know how very painful they are. Canker sores develop for several reasons ranging from diet to gum disease. I am sorry to say there is no cure for canker sores, but you can help prevent them. The good news is that there are products available that will relieve discomfort and speed up the healing process.
What are canker sores?
Canker sores are recurring white spots (painful mouth ulcers). They can appear on the sides of your tongue or cheeks. Do you know why they are so painful? Canker sores are open wounds with exposed nerve endings. Because you really don't have a way to cover them they often become infected and this will generate even more pain.
As I already mentioned there are numerous things that can cause canker sores. If you suffer from frequent canker sores then take a small quiz.
- Are you under a lot of stress?
- Have you had recent dental work (dentures or braces)?
- Do you have food allergies?
- Do you have gastrointestinal problems?
- Have you been diagnosed with gum disease?
All the above are reasons canker sores develop if you can narrow your problem areas down then you can get an idea of how to help prevent them. The question is where can you get relief?
I have researched and found that since 1920 that two antibacterial agents have been used in gum disease treatment iodine and copper sulfate. These two agents are the oldest natural antibiotics. Copper sulfate and iodine have been tested on soft tissue control and gum disease. Since 1980 dentists have been using products containing iodine and copper sulfate agents to treat canker sores. These products are now available without prescription. Recent research has found the Ultimate Gum Solution is also good natural nutritional solution with strongest Antibacteria.
Further studies show that 99% of toothpastes contain sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). SLS is a strong detergent and it not only makes you susceptible to gum disease, but it also contributes to canker sore development. Look for products that do not contain SLS because it can cause substantial problems in your mouth.
You may have tried many mouth rinses as well to help relieve your canker sore discomfort. Did you know that store bought mouth rinses won't provide real pain relief? You need to find a pain killing liquid anesthetic that doesn't contain dyes, alcohol, or sugar. Hospitals have been using this type of mouth rinse for many years in treating canker sore pain. Dentists use the mouth rinse for gum disease treatment.
In a nutshell yes you can get canker sore relief from gum disease remedies. Consult your dental care professional to find out more about the products available.
