Canker sores are shallow lesions on the mouth’s soft tissues or at the base of the gums. They are not contagious but can be painful and cause discomfort while eating, drinking, and even talking. Canker sores often resolve without treatment within two weeks. Still, if a sore is especially large, painful, or recurring, we may be able to recommend over-the-counter products to manage symptoms or other treatments in the case of especially large or painful sores.
