Dear Steven: Mouth ulcers is frequently the body's accumulation of toxins which it has been unable to eliminate. I have mouth ulcers every time I get constipation or do not go to the morning bathroom regularly but try to delay by going later.

Since it occurred after your visit the dentist, then there is a question of additional toxins being introduced to the root canal that is put into it causing the problems such as amalgam containing mercury, cotton being put into the root canal, or other fillers which were not properly sanitized.

If conditions persists despite all efforts to detoxify then you must see your dentist and check what entered your root canal and re cleaning for example might help.

The simplest way to deal with mouth ulcers is just to buy a dental paste put on to the mouth ulcers and constant changes with this will allow the mouth ulcers to heal. It takes about two days to deal with it.

If that doesn't work, then other way is to do some oil pulling using refined sunflower oil and swishing around the mouth and spitting out the toxins several times a day. It is the same with the dental paste, but it is allowed to pull the toxins from the ulcers for a longer period of time, with changes of dental pastes every 2 - 3 hours. Old home remedies using beeswax might also be used as dental pastes but I don't know how well that worked.

However, if you are already having constipation now and then you need to resolve this by reduction in constipation by adding 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt, with 1/2 glass of water. This is a weak solution, at least for me. So just vary your dosage accordingly.

The other issue is to alkalize your body by taking 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/2 glass of water twice a day, once in bedtime and once in the morning. The other issue is the possibility of heavy metals being introduced in the body as a result of the visit to the dentists. So a simple way is just to take 1 teaspoon of cod liver oil, and take on an empty stomach, and plenty of water, granulated powdered lecithin 1 tablespoon at three times a day. Improving eliminations is the one way of removing the toxins, the other way is to kill or neutralized the toxins that the body CANNOT remove. In this case, taking 6-12 drops of 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide in 1 glass of water and drink that 3 times a day. Always start on the low end of the dose, such as 6 drops to help detox the body.

It takes awhile longer to remove the ulcers, but if done right, ulcers should be reduced or cleared by about one week, the fastest is 3 days. But it must be noted that you need to use the dental paste first, it is a common treatment for mouth ulcers. Most local drug stores should have this, at least my local drug in Bangkok anyway.
