Aphthous ulcers, also known as canker sores, are a common oral condition characterized by recurrent, painful, small ulcers that typically arise on the non-keratinized mucous membranes within the mouth. Although the pathogenesis of aphthous ulcers is not completely understood; it is believed to be involved in a combination of genetic predisposition, local trauma, stress, hormonal changes, and certain environmental factors. Thus, management of aphthous ulcer revolves around reducing pain, promoting healing and preventing recurrence.
