Say Goodbye to Cankers - 5 Natural Remedies

Are you tired of dealing with painful canker sores? You're not alone. These pesky little sores can be a real nuisance, causing discomfort and making it difficult to eat or speak. But fear not, there is a simple solution that can help alleviate your suffering: changing your toothpaste.

What causes canker sores?

Canker sores can have various causes, including ill-fitting dentures, dental surgery, stress, or worry. However, one common culprit is the Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) found in most toothpastes. SLS is a foaming agent that creates that frothy, bubbly effect we associate with toothpaste. Unfortunately, it is also a known irritant and can cause and prolong the agony of canker sores.

Why is Sodium Lauryl Sulphate used in toothpaste?

You might be wondering why so many toothpaste products contain SLS if it can be harmful. The answer is simple: it creates a satisfying foam that many people associate with cleanliness. However, this foaming action comes at a cost, as it can irritate the delicate tissues in your mouth and trigger canker sores.

How can changing toothpaste help?

The first line of attack for canker sores is to switch to a toothpaste that does not contain Sodium Lauryl Sulphate. By eliminating this irritant from your oral care routine, you can significantly reduce the frequency and severity of canker sores. Look for toothpaste brands that are SLS-free and specifically formulated for sensitive mouths.

Other tips for preventing canker sores

While changing toothpaste is a great first step, there are a few other measures you can take to prevent canker sores:

  1. Practice good oral hygiene: Brush your teeth gently and regularly, and don't forget to floss.
  2. Avoid spicy and acidic foods: These can irritate your mouth and trigger canker sores.
  3. Manage stress: Find healthy ways to cope with stress, such as exercise, meditation, or talking to a friend.
  4. Protect your mouth: If you have ill-fitting dentures or braces, consult your dentist to ensure they fit properly and aren't causing unnecessary irritation.

My SLS-free favorite is Vita-Myr Zinc+ Toothpaste, Sugar-Free, Fluoride-Free AND Made in USA. These can also be bought online at good prices. It's worth a little extra cost to become canker free. I haven't had sores for years. Remember, prevention is key when it comes to canker sores. By making a simple change to your toothpaste and following these tips, you can finally say goodbye to those painful sores and enjoy a healthier, happier mouth.
