  • How can I prevent mouth sores?
    • Minimize stress: take time off to relax, eat right and get plenty of sleep. Take care of your mouth: Be careful when eating dry, crunchy foods. Any sharp, hard edges in your mouth can cause cuts that lead to mouth ulcers. Also, excessive dryness of the mouth can lead to mouth ulcers. For some people, triggering foods like nuts, spices, or food and drinks high in acidic content can lead to sores.
