any ulcer existing for more than a month should be taken seriously.
Visit a dentist and make sure that you dont have sharp edges on your teeth causing the ulceration. And if you are a smoker, tobacoo chewer or alcoholic,ask the doctor for biopsy to rule out complications associated with long standing ulcers as there is a risk of developing oral cancer.
Multiple reasons. May be because of your habits or may be because of gastric problms. It can be also due to some sharp tooth structure is irritating your mucosa leading to ulceration. Its been a long time so i suggest you to visit a dentist

In most of cases doctors usually miss the diagnosis of ulcers due to dental problems & brushing defects.
1.Consult a good dentist
2.Use soft bristles & change brush every month
3.Use Dabar tooth paste
4.Use Vitcofol tab daily one
Reasons for ulcers can be stress,anxiety,vitamin deficiency,sharp tooth cusp.Since your problem is existing for past 1 year.We will have to evaluate and find the cause for its reoccurance,kindly visit dentist near by for early diagnosis and permanent cure.
Having the same, non healing ulcer in the mouth maybe somewhat different from repeated appearance of fresh ulcers that heal up, only to be replaced with fresh ulcers. In any case, it would be better to see a dentist or an Oral Surgeon or an Oral Medicine specialist to get a definitive opinion.
Hope this helps.
You may be suffering from recurrent apthous ulcer or a trauma from a sharp tooth or immune related problems.Long standing ulcer is not a good sign.So consult a dentist and a physician to rule out any of these problems and do the right treatment.
Having a non healing ulcer is not good. Get your sugar level checked, and check for any sharp edge of tooth or filling in your mouth.
You will need to get the sharp point (if any) rounded off and then the ulcer should heal. Your dentist will suggest you further treatment after examining you.
But get it done on an urgent basis.
please go to your dentist and get a biopsy done .They take a small piece of the ulcer and examine under microscope. Do this ASAP. All the best.
