Ulcers generally occur in the mouth of healthy individuals due to some trauma by brushes,tooth picks, some sharp object put in the mouth or due to some sharp broken tooth.Generally ulcers heal within a period of 7-14 days without any medication.People getting recurrent ulcers could be suffering from some deficiency which can be corrected after consultation with your doctor.Ulcers not healing for more then a month should be a cause of concern and needs immediate medical advice.If the ulcers are occurring in the region of some sharp or broken tooth then visit your dentist and get it rounded.
