Mouth Ulcers

Recurrent mouth ulcers occur in approximately 20 - 40% of the U.S. population. Individuals who have a decreased thickness in the lining of their mouths are more prone to these ulcers. However, the thinner lining of oral mucosa (lining of the mouth) is genetically related, so a familial link can lead to regular mouth ulcers as well.

These ulcers can occur as single or multiple lesions and do not appear on the lips or gum directly around the teeth.
