I've just come across a section on mouth ulcers as part of my reading for my project.
-Caused by such factors as trauma, chemicals, infections, immunological disorders or neoplasms (i've no idea what they are?:)

- Aspirin is known to impair musocal defences and tissue repair. Aspirin delays healing of oral mucosal ulcers by amplification of apoptosis and inhibition of cell proliferation. So don't take aspirin if you have a mouth ulcer. (unless you have to:)

Theres some other information but I don't understand it...

What do you mean by swish? Just a quick splash with vinegar on it?

it means like put some vinegar in your mouth swirl it around in there. Like how you would rinse out your mouth with water after you brush your teeth.

you should never swish plain vinegar around in your mouth because it is so bad for the teeth. Vinegar will eat the calcium off your teeth. You may be allegeric to something you are eating........ie tomatoes. Figuring that part out may take you some time but until you do if you want a mouth rinse use salt water. You can even use hydrogen peroxide with a little water to dilute it, but never use plain vinegar.

Two things : 1. the canker sores and such virus' are caused by a deficiency in Vitamin C, which helps immunity.
2. Vinegar is a horrible alternative to clean your mouth when compared to something like listerine, which is harmless and effective in killing bacteria.

Listerine is an okay choice but your dentist will tell you it has to much alcohol in it and will dry out your mouth which is never a good thing.

The simple thing is brush your teeth correctly and regularly after each meal and before go to bed ;) If you don't do this, a tooth fairy will appear in your dream to pull out your teeth one by one :D

Ahahaha... I remember my parents always tell me this when I was a little child. Thanks that I never have a problem with my mouth and teeth now ;)

In the United States we package those things in pretty, shiney wrappers for children to eat called candy. Also in aluminum and plastic containers called soda or depending on your location "pop" or "coke".

Im no biologist, but I can tell you that a cure for canker sores is sauerkraut. I know this sounds unusual, but it works. If you do not like it, maybe just eat some cabbage.
