    Default Canker Sores - natural treatment

    So I had dental surgery on Tuesday and the very next day I get a canker sore (of course!), I've tried baking soda, salt/water rinses and its still there. Anyone have any ideas? I cant use anything containing alcohol as it will dissolve the stitches I have.

    Help!!!

    My dentist will laser canker sores. It works for my kids, but I get really bad ones so it only partially helps for me. It might be worth it to ask if they do that. It's the same laser they use for gum therapy. It's a painless procedure. I've also used Oralmedic from Shoppers, but I have to warn you that it really, really hurts when you put it on. The pain lasts for a few seconds and then the canker sore will stop hurting completely and you'll feel relief. It isn't like a barrier that goes away after a few hours; it will last until the sore is gone. If you use it, just don't say I didn't warn you about the pain!

    Editing to say: I just realized this post is from a few days ago, so I hope it has gotten better!
